  • Teacher Training and Development

    Under the aegis of the Kuruvila Jacob Initiative, we launched a Skill development and Competency Enhancement Programme for pre-primary and primary class teachers who work in regular schools to identify and guide children with specific learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, emotional disturbances, autism spectrum and slow learning. This programme is designed to help teachers keep up-to-date with current thinking in pedagogy, to reinforce the teachers’ confidence in their career choices and to make them more aware and knowledgeable about the nuances of early childhood education and become completely available to the children in the classroom.

  • Early Intervention

    The primary focus of our early intervention programme is family education, training and support. The programme is designed to enable parents and other caregivers to assess their child’s developmental needs, incorporate educational and therapeutic strategies into daily routines and utilize available community resources. Children between birth and seven years of age who exhibit developmental delays are usually eligible for early intervention. Early intervention specialists including; educators, therapists, social workers, psychologists, and nurses work with families to develop strategies to incorporate intervention objectives into their daily routines. Services are provided in the family’s home, the child’s daycare, the early intervention center or other locations where the child and family spend time. The Early Intervention programme in V-Excel enjoys a success rate of 73% in mainstreaming children with developmental delays.

  • Curative Education

    Curative Education provides a broad and integrated view of the human being, including an understanding of abilities and disabilities, age, development and relation to the environment. We use curative education to teach children with special needs. This experience of an integrated ‘wholeness’ is clearly beneficial for children and adults, who have difficulties integrating their sense-experience, as is the case with those who have ASD or Asperger Syndrome.

  • CSR Partnerships

    CSR not only includes the activities that a company undertakes in order to utlilze their profit to enable social and environmental development, but also includes the methods that a company employs in order to earn these profits including socially responsible investments, and transparency to various stakeholders among others. Realizing the importance and the long-term benefit of being socially responsible many companies have incorporated socially responsible business practices. The basic objective of CSR is to maximize the company’s overall impact on the society and stakeholders while considering environment and overall sustainability. CSR Partnership is a long-term engagement of two or more organizations’ work-culture and systems and processes and social or business aspirations. It has to be understood and envisioned before it is practiced. V-excel's CSR partnerships are progressing from one-off grants and projects to strategic long-term collaborations.

    Empowering young adults with special needs

    A laundry and cafeteria run by young adults with special needs are among the empowering programmes envisaged by the Kinchitkaram Trust’s Abhyasa Kendra School in Srirangam.

    “We have found that many schools here cater to young children with special needs of 5-8 years, and after a period, not knowing what to do, they send them back home. It undoes all the work that has been put in through the years, which is really quite a lot,” Vasudha Prakash, founder-director, V-Excel Educational Trust, that is behind the curricular structure in the school, told The Hindu.More
