Sri Lalitha – is a creative school catering for the children in the age group of 5 to 15years with moderate Learning Difficulties, Slow Learners, Drop Outs, Speech Problem, Communication Disorder and Autism. The learning centre seeks to provide a friendly, caring and safe environment in which the children can develop their potential by having equal access to quality educational opportunities and experiences.
Srilalitha Learning Centre (SLLC) does a cognitive profile to find out the areas of disability like reading and language-skills, after which the child can attend sessions to improve their capabilities. It is formed to help the learning disabled children to overcome their problem with a little effort. Lata, who has a practical experience in training and molding special children, helps the children with various skills like reading, elementary maths, writing and language skills which are taught with the help of special aids developed by SLLC.The focus is on all-around development, with an emphasis on vocational training, to make the children self-sufficient. An IEP is prepared for each child taking consideration his/her learning style, strengths and needs.
Children as young as kindergarten and as old as 17 or 20 can be assisted with this supplementary help. Children studying in regular schools can attend the sessions after school and get assisted in their area of difficulty.
SriLalitha Learning School also conducts regular workshops for teachers and volunteers on special education training.
“A child facing any learning disability should always be given the benefit of doubt and should not be labelled as lazy, unmotivated or stupid. Instead the best way to help the child must be recognized,” is Lata Lakshminarayanan’s plea.
