Project Description

The Spastics Society of Karnataka was founded in 1982. It aims to assist with the integration of children with disabilities into the mainstream community. The Society also works at creating awareness among people about prevention of disabilities such as cerebral palsy.
In the "Appropriate Learning" project, education is individually planned based on the abilities of the children. They try to provide the children with an education that will allow them to lead lives that are as independent as possible. This includes teaching basic needs such as math, language and environmental sciences. As the children grow older, other prevocational & vocational skills are also taught.

Purpose / Goals

The project was conceived with a view to providing educational and literacy services to

  • Children with disabilities including cerebral palsy.
  • Children from poorer sections of society with disabilities.
  • Integrating more capable Spastic children into regular schools.
  • Spread awareness of the different problems faced by children with cerebral palsy into the community.
  • Educate the general public on prevention of cerebral palsy.
