Samam Vidya brings workshop to improve writing skills
The education of children with disabilities and disorders needs to be carried out as per their needs and understanding.
For children with disabilities the pace of learning is different from other children. The process of special education involves use of modified teaching methods, sensitization in educators and techniques.
Samam Vidya is an organization based in Bangalore that has been working to create quality education in India by giving training to educators.
Through the expert support and training, students have a better chance of getting good education. Padma Shastry is the Founder and Director of Samam Vidya.
She is a special education expert with years of experience of working with children with disabilities such as Learning Disabilities, autism, Down ‘s syndrome, seizure disorder, vision impairments and physical disabilities.
She uses her knowledge to train other educators, parents and enables them to become effective teachers.
Aparna Vellala is an educator and shared her experience with NewzHook.
The great thing about this workshop is the participants get to do what is expected out of the students. The process of writing itself can be understood and is very helpful for content writing. Padma shares tips with her rich experience that help drive the classroom for all kinds of students. Aparna Vellala
