Raising Funds For

As part of its larger goals of creating an education system that is sensitive to the special needs of differently abled individuals, MDA is designing a model project for the appropriate identification and intervention for LD amongst children in the non aided , government aided and municipal schools outside Mumbai where there is little awareness and no facilities available. The objective of this project is to create a viable model for supporting students with LD in middle town cities where no such support system exists. Activities proposed to be carried out are awareness workshops for mainstream teachers and parents in understanding and identifying LD students. Training interested teachers in strategies for managing LD students within mainstream. Motivating interested teachers to seek specialised training through suitable modules in Mumbai or elsewhere .The funds also will be used to subsidize the remedial services at different centres offered to children from economically low background.
