Inclusive Education Facility at Bangalore International School [BIS].

 One of the objectives of BIS is to provide inclusive education, wherein all students of the school, regardless of their strengths and weaknesses in any area, are a part of the school community. The Learning Centre team at Bangalore International School comprises 11 special educators, a speech therapist, a physiotherapist and a developmental therapist. We believe in educating children with special needs in a mainstream school.

They offer inclusive educational placement along a continuum of partial to full general classroom placement depending on the individual need of the student. All children belong to a mainstream class and participate with their mainstream peers in academics, co-curricular and extracurricular activities to the maximum extent.

Students with specific learning difficulties are offered support in the Learning Centre for specific curriculum based remediation, for example, in spelling, in reading, in arithmetic and in comprehension. Some students follow an adapted curriculum which is formulated according to their present level of academic functioning. Students with speech difficulty, in language and communication follow an intensive speech therapy programme, whilst those with motor and coordination difficulties are assisted by the physio/developmental therapist.

In all their endeavours, the focus is on the individual child. So They design a child centered program flexible enough to meet each child's academic, socio-emotional and behavioral needs, thereby ensuring the holistic development of the child.

To increase awareness and sensitivity towards the varied needs of some of their students, their special educators conduct sensitization sessions for teachers, parents, students and support staff. The Learning Centre faculty attend workshops to gain more knowledge of prevalent practices in Inclusive Education and to share professional experiences, thus keeping themselves updated in the field of Special Education.

The intent of the school is to explore a totally different kind of education which creates the freedom to bring about clarity in the mind.
This school is not a place where the child is being trained to fit into particular social strata. Nor is it a place where one can seek security through conformity to the aims and ambitions of society. It is not a place merely to help a slow learner or a child with learning or behavioural difficulties to adapt to the system. Nor is it for a gifted child to focus only on a particular talent at the expense of the whole human being.

Poorna is a small, inclusive school based in Bangalore, that focuses on learning instead of just "education".

Aarohi Life Education an Alternate System of Education

Aarohi Life Education vision is to offer an environment and process that empowers children to learn on their own, all they need & want to learn for living their life, both now and in future.
Innovation in education cannot be achieved by tinkering the current system. It can only be achieved by offering an alternate system â€" a system which is true to the child and to the objective of education. A system which does not target the next exam or the next college rather it empowers children into adults who can think, lead and enjoy their life to fullest potential.
If you are looking at a school that values the learner more than the learning; that values the process more than the results, that is based on children creating their own learningrather than us teaching them, and that is about living life - now and in future - then explore more:
The School is currently for children 5.5 years to upto 10th Standard. A child can join at any age and at any time of the year (only subject to space availability).
