The CSE caters to 170 students ranging from 3 to 25 years of age including those students enrolled in the Center for Vocational Training. The children attending CSE are of a variety of neurological challenges such as Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Learning Difficulties. The primary goal of the CSE program is to provide each individual with an environment which facilitates & maximizes his/her learning abilities, academically and functionally. Thus providing them with an opportunity to reach their full potential for becoming active members within the community. Classes are divided into the following groups to facilitate the CSE objective:
The “Early Intervention Program” aims to provide services for infants, toddlers and children up to the age of 5 years at risk for developmental delays. These services are designed to identify and meet children’s special needs in 5 main developmental areas, namely- physical, cognitive, communication, social or emotional development and sensory and adaptive development.
Resources, guidance and therapies such as Occupational, Physio, Speech, Aquatic, Equine therapy and Sensory Integration have shown great improvement in the children. They begin to talk, engage with one another and gradually grasp academic concepts like alphabets and numbers as well.
The academic group follows the common curriculum of open basic education of the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) which prepares students for classes III, V, VIII and X, finally prepares them for main stream schooling.
Students learn the basic literacy & mathematical skills which are necessary for daily interactions within the community.
Students enrolled in this group require high level of support system. The focus of this class is directed towards learning skills to perform basic functional activities of daily living, enabling individuals to optimize their involvement within the family & community setting. Learning is directed though a variety of fun and motivating recreational and functional activities.

The ‘Mother and Child Training Program’ aims to empower Mothers of special children enabling them to effectively handle their child at home. This program strives to help the mother understand her child, the disability, and the unique learning style of the child thus empowering her to manage challenging situations and work more productively with the child.
The program is focused on maximizing the quality of time that the mother spends with the child by teaching focused one-on-one skills which are tailored individually for each child and take into account the child’s strengths, emerging skills and weakest skill areas. This intervention, along with the supportive and positive environment extensively helps children to overcome the severity of the disability.
