Satya Special School
The Satya Special School is a non profit, voluntary organization (reg under the Societies Registration Act 1860). The school was started in June 2003 with 20 special children with various disabilities such as, Autism, Downs Syndrome, Mental Retardation, learning difficulties, cerebral palsy and others. Today the school is growing rapidly with 130 children who enjoy their time away from the hardships of social stigma in India. They are provided care from volunteer teachers and physicians through year round schooling.
Unlike other schools for special children, Satya believes in catering to the individual needs of the child. Each child is assessed according to their individual needs. The children are grouped as vocational, academic and care and management groups. Regular assessments are done to evaluate the progress made by each child. The school has specialized trained staff who understand and teach these special children.
All of their services are provided free to 80% of the beneficiaries. They also take their services into local communities to provide therapy and support to those who are unable or unwilling to travel into the city for treatment.
