NGO ADAPT shows Mumbai schools how to be inclusive
ADAPT is one of the largest NGOs in India working for the disabled and their families. The approach is that of combining education and treatment for people under one roof.
ADAPT's services range from identification and assessment, treatment, education, vocational guidance, advocacy and awareness and employment guidance and placement, and policy changeby engaging on a national level with the government.
Among ADAPT’s key successes has been to demonstrate that children can be educated in mainstream schools through inclusive education and creative, multi-level teaching strategies.
Many of its students have been included into mainstream schools at the early and middle schools levels, which is a welcome sign of how successful inclusion can be. ADAPT is partnering with 76 schools in Mumbai to accept students with disabilities as well as poorer backgrounds.
ADAPT has reaached out to children in the city and rural areas, and aims to fill gaps that may exist in the provision of services.
