A first of its kind initiative has been launched in Puducherry by the Sri
Aurobindo Society – SAS for the children with learning disabilities.
The project is called Rupantar and aims to create inclusion in the field of
education for children that have learning problems.
As part of the Rupantar project, a three-day workshop for teachers was
recently held in Puducherry.
Training of teachers vital for Inclusive Education
70 teachers were trained to handle the requirements of children with
special needs from classes 1 to 8. SAS is hoping to train all the teachers in
Puducherry under the project. Through the training, teachers in all schools
will be able to identify children with learning disabilities and help them
according to their needs. The training of teachers in all schools is vital for
making the education system inclusive for everyone. Rupantar was first launched
in Uttar Pradesh and is currently working in 9 states across the country.
