After looking into these areas very minutely, Goals are formed according to the Individual Ability of each child . Our well trained Special Educators work hard to plan and carry on the Strategies that are required to reach these goals.
While the strategies and activities are all directed towards developing all the skill areas , special attention and focus is laid on COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT .
