What does Sunrise Learning offers
Via special education, children with multiple disabilities learn how to live an independent life, something which comes naturally to normal children, has to be taught to children with multiple disabilities.
This is created for each Child where teaching strategies are customised to the child’s need. No two children has the same form of disability thus individualisation is important to achieve learning results.
In India, the time lag between identification and intervention is almost two years – thus children with MDVI lose years of early development, which are foundational to success in school and life.
It aims at helping the mother understand the unique learning styles of the child with autism. This enables the mother to teach the child new skills and help him/her generalize learnt skills in the environment using the most appropriate teaching strategies.
The goal of the therapies is to rehabilitate the child thereby maximizing their potential to move closer to their developmental milestone.
Therapies help a child with multiple disability to achieve their goals in visual, cognitive, social/emotional, communicative and physical development.
The team assesses each child and develops goals for them in each area.
As Child with special needs requires a multidisciplinary team to optimise a child’s development.
There are few employment opportunities for people with disabilities and parents struggle with how to keep there child occupied throughout the days, weeks and months.
If the right amount of support is provided, irrespective of the nature of the employment, most people with autism would be successful active members in their work place.
This program of Sunrise Learning caters to those adults who may seek work in the open employment, but, may need ‘on the job’ training to help them prepare for the same.
Parents face a lot of emotional stress, frustration and fatigue when they have a child with special needs.
They also do not know how to help their child in their development. They cannot manage their behavior and do not have the necessary skills to teach them basic things at home.
Sunrise Learning provide Social & emotional support. counselling services, facilitating linkage to governmental schemes, training on how to take care of your Child, support getting disability certificates and much more.
We also advocate the needs of children with special needs to healthcare providers and run awareness program in school, colleges, Public places and corporates – providing a glimpse of the life lived by children with multiple disabilities.
At Sunrise Learning, we celebrate the Special Days dedicated to our cause – inviting all stakeholders to participate and celebrate the unique joy that each child with Sunrise team brings to the world.
