The Holy Cross Convent Special School (Co-ed) Reg. No. A.187 was inaugurated on November 14, 1996. It is established and administered by the Society of the Holy Cross.
The school focuses on individualized education, addressing specific needs of differently abled children. The goal-based teaching approach enables teachers to work with students and their parents in developing a year-long program. Every stakeholder works hand in hand to achieve these goals and help us in fulfilling the objectives of getting them into the mainstream.
The phased journey picks up the pace from pre-primary to pre-vocational class. Students are prepared to take National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS)’s Tests and also join a vocational course of their choice.
Students are assisted by trained and certified Occupational Therapist and Speech Therapist who enable them to perform meaningful and purposeful activities.
During the time spent in Therapy sessions, the challenges addressed are:
- Speech and Comprehension
- Articulation and Communication
- Gait Walking Patterns
- Sensory Integration and behavior modification
- Social Interaction and Self Help
