Institute of Special Education

The Arya Vidya Mandir Institute of Special Education strives to build a society of caregivers who will provide a supportive and nurturing learning environment for students. We do this by providing training in skills and strategies to teachers, parents of children with special needs and persons in the field of education to ensure that children will develop love for learning and reach their potential to become contributing members of the society.

AVM Institute of Special Education conducts a part-time certificate course, ‘Introduction to Learning Disabilities’. It is open to teachers, parents, therapists and all others working in the field of education and child welfare. The course aims at creating awareness of students’academic learning difficulties.
