SPECIAL EDUCATION NEED

The Scindia School believes in the principles of Inclusive Education. The School has achieved great results by identifying these needs and introducing appropriate modifications in school policy, structure, and curriculum to suit the needs of the students whose pattern of learning is different. The students with Special Education Needs are encouraged to study with the mainstream.

As a school policy, at the beginning of each session, a standardized spelling test is conducted to screen and identify children with possible learning difficulties. Once identified, structural changes are introduced in the students’ daily schedule to accommodate special classes. A system of parallel classes has been incorporated to teach subjects like Mathematics and Physics for senior classes. This is part of the exclusive setup.

Shadow teaching is being used at the Middle School level for Mathematics as part of the inclusive set-up. Students are provided alternative choices in subjects as per the accommodations offered by the CBSE. School provides a reader for our dyslexic children during exams.

The school has also invested in specialized teaching aids and equipment to meet the curricular requirements. Specially designed Individual education Programmes (IEPs) include a large portion of phonetics to overcome the basic issues faced by the students in reading and writing. Lessons are taught using different mediums.

The progress of students and the success of strategies are monitored. During the course of the year, if it is felt that a child may need additional guidance, more detailed evaluation is conducted, at times by external experts, to get a comprehensive picture and the child is provided with remediation accordingly.

The parents are duly involved in this slightly different learning process of their child.

The SEN Department contributes to the overall development of the student. Each student is closely guided and encouraged to participate in sports, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
