Your donation can help an adult lead a meaningful life
Deepak joined Madhya Pradesh Viklang Sahayta Samiti to improve his development skills. Before joining this special school in 1998, Deepak was not sure about his future and was spending his days idle at home.
In MPVSS, he underwent a special skill development training in self care, social behavior, functional academics, prevocational, recreational areas followed by vocational skills. Slowly, he improved a lot and became independent in dealing with people. During his training, he also developed an interest in sports and participated as a member of the Indian Basketball Team for the International Special Olympics in Athens, Greece in 2011 and had won the gold medal for the country. In 2003, he joined the school as a full time supporting staff to help other children learn better.

What the beneficiary gets
Madhya Pradesh Vikalang Sahayta Samiti provides special education to developmentally disabled children and adults. It serves the individuals with autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation and multiple other disabilities. They aim to make individuals with such special abilities be more acceptable in the society by training them in basic skills.
These are the most neglected group in society, who are often not enrolled in regular schools because they have different educational needs. Hence, the organization started a special school for these children.
The special education is based on repeated practical exposure using special education techniques, special educational material in special classes by special educators. Students learn self-care, social adaptive behaviour, functional academics and pre- vocational and recreational skills. This prepares the ground for their vocational training in the future to make them independent. This programme includes support to many poor children and adults with special abilities, who are cross-subsidized by beneficiaries who can afford to pay

Education and Training with a difference
Special training and education for person with developmental disability basically refers to “Educational programs and practices designed for children and young adults - who are with mental, physical or emotional disabilities. These children require special teaching approaches, equipment or care within or outside a regular classroom. M.P Viklang Sahayta Samiti has established four Special Schools for these students. Schools are equipped with adequate learning aids and trained teachers.
The children are taught various tasks and skills appropriate to their age and functional level to make them self-dependent. MPVSS is running three such four special schools. Schools are well equipped with state of art infrastructure, teaching and learning aids, with Therapeutic facilities. We have been providing special education to the children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, by our well trained teachers who are qualified in special education and registered with RCI. They focus on over all development of the special children which includes physical, emotional and creative skills. The volunteers, social workers and field workers of MPVSS regularly identify the children with special needs in the backward urban and rural areas. We are providing behavior modification of the Children with developmental disabilities through the services of psychological counseling, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and special education techniques, by a team of interdisciplinary teachers and resource persons.

We give special attention in these fields to provide them training in sports, games, dance, music, drawing and handicraft article making.
