Meet Gurpreet:

Gurpreet’s school forms the outside world for her. She interacts mostly with teachers and parents.We wanted to transform the education of children like Gurpreet so we started learning with them. We got older students and adults involved in content creation and developed and tested our resources. Gurpreet can now learn from over 300 Special Education Modules.

icon Impact

Our capstone service is delivering Special Education Modules (SEMs). Such a skillset gives a visually challenged child self-confidence to try out new things.

We have transformed the education of over 1000 visually challenged children.

Results have shown a 21.5% increase in average test scores.

Our engagement levels measure vs 30-40% with comparable resources.

icon Innovation

Extensive Field Research Surveys conducted in 2010 and 2011, demonstrated audio and tactile to be the most interactive mediums for delivering educational content to the visually challenged. These led us to establish the SPECIAL methodology in designing course content and delivery. Our well researched , innovative technologies contain the best content and design for cognitive self-learning. This led us to the development of Special Education Modules.
