Usha Memorial Divyang Vidyalaya is registered under pwd act 1995 and running Special School from 2012.
The school aims at imparting, training and education to children with special needs. The idea behind starting the school is that education should be considered as a basic need of all children, especially those diagnosed with special needs.
We take responsibility for nurturing and developing the personal qualities of every child and will emphasise the importance of exemplary behaviour and help children learn how to show it. We provide our staff with the tools and support to instil a strong learning culture in their classrooms. Teaching at Usha Memorial Divyang Vidyalaya is excellent. Our team of dedicated staff is committed to all our children’s success.
The Special children who are in our school are as follows:-
Autism spectrum disorder impacts the nervous system and affects the overall cognitive, emotional, social and physical health of the affected individual.
The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely. Common symptoms include difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests and repetitive behaviours.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopmental type.It is characterized by problems paying attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behavior which is not appropriate for a person’s age.
A learning disability is a neurological disorder. In simple terms, a learning disability results from a difference in the way a person’s brain is “wired.” Children with learning disabilities are as smart or smarter than their peers. But they may have difficulty reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling and/or organizing information if left to figure things out by themselves or if taught in conventional ways.
A learning disability can’t be cured or fixed; it is a lifelong issue. With the right support and intervention, however, children with learning disabilities can succeed in school and go on to successful, often distinguished careers later in life.
Hearing impairment, or hearing loss, occurs when you lose part or all of your ability to hear. Other terms that are used to refer to hearing impairment are deaf and hard of hearing.
Hearing impairments are classified in terms of the severity and type of hearing impairment. The severity of the hearing impairment is categorized based on the minimum sound that can be heard with your better ear. The higher the decibel (dB), the louder the sound.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood.Signs and symptoms vary among people.Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles and tremors.There may be problems with sensation, vision, hearing, swallowing and speaking.Often, babies with cerebral palsy do not roll over, sit, crawl or walk as early as other children of their age.
Down syndrome (DS or DNS), also known as Down’s syndrome and trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21.It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features, and mild to moderate intellectual disability.The average IQ of a young adult with Down syndrome is 50, equivalent to the mental ability of an 8 or 9-year-old child, but this can vary widely.The parents of the affected individual are typically genetically normal.The extra chromosome occurs by chance.
