Learning Centre

The Vigyan Valley Learning Centre welcomes students with learning disabilities, and is committed to respond appropriately and effectively to their learning needs. The Centre is dedicated to taking all practical steps to ensure that students with learning disabilities can pursue their studies at secondary (IX & X) and senior secondary (XI & XII) level without any disadvantage. Our students are encouraged to make full use of various academic and support services on offer.

At our Centre, we take pride in understanding the learning and behaviour needs of your child. We understand that ordinary schools often do not understand and meet the diverse needs of your child. And we certainly appreciate the need to restructure and reorganize what and how we teach so that your child learns efficiently and effectively with us!

And, what’s more, we understand that when your child has a need to leave his or her present school, they should come to a place for learning that offers more than the school your child has left behind – a learning centre that provides:

  • an opportunity to learn the secondary and senior secondary curriculum of the National Institute of Open Schooling
  • an array of exciting curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities
  • a student-friendly classroom environment that supports their learning and behaviour needs
  • teaching practices that meet the best practices and standards in special education, especially in teaching students with learning disabilities
  • a team of proactive and multipurpose educators with dual certification or training in general and special education

College of Disability Studies

The prevalence of people with disabilities in India is estimated to increase significantly. Changing demography, increasing disabling conditions, and enhanced longevity due to recent advances in medical technology and care all lead to this increase. The Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI) estimates that by the end of the year 2016, the number will increase up to 2 crore, 29 lakh. It means that almost every year one lakh persons with disability will add to our population.

A major constraint in expanding the rehabilitation services in India is the lack of trained manpower to offer services to people with disabilities. According to RCI, during the year 2007, the rehabilitation sector faced a shortage of about 1.9 lakh trained personnel under different categories. By the end of the 12th Plan, the shortage of human resources will still be to the tune of 1, 04, 531!

Therefore, a College of Disability Studies (CDS), under the direct aegis of the Vigyan Valley Education Trust, is being established to educate and train professionals at various levels.

At present, the Foundation Course in the Education of Children with Learning Disabilities (FCECLD) of the Rehabilitation Council of India is offered by us.
