Special Needs Learning Centers: Learning to Excel
Special needs learning centers are designed to provide children with tailored services that are challenging and engaging. Whether it's for math, reading, attention, processing speed, or others, early achievements prepare children for a lifetime of success. Special needs kids are commonly defined by what they can't do and the definitions ranges from mild learning disabilities to profound mental retardation. So much of a child's future success depends on how they perform in school. It can be very difficult for children with special needs to go through school and do the normal work load. Learning centers have a number of different concerns that need attention.
Special Needs Learning Centers: Different Aspects
Special needs learning centers have many aspects to take into affect. Any two families of children with special needs will differ greatly with what they have to deal with.
Special Needs Learning Centers: Overcoming
Learning centers should always be willing to go the extra mile for your child, no matter what the need. At NANAK INFOTECH, we understand the difficulty for both the parents and the child. For parents, it's difficult to know what's best for your child. Sometimes, you don't know how you can help. For children, it's a constant struggle to fit in, and to keep up. We offer one-on-one training to not only alleviate the difficulties, but ultimately overcome them once and for all. We specialize in a type of brain training called cognitive skills training. Cognitive skills are the brain's basic tools needed to learn and function effectively. Through unique brain exercises, we've helped thousands of children overcome their difficulties.

Children "At risk"
The term "at risk" is mostly used during early childhood. A child "at risk" is one who is currently healthy, but is at a risk of developing learning, emotional, behavioural or physical difficulties in the future. Babies exposed to drugs, abuse, neglect and those with genetic pre-dispositions to mental illness and physical difficulties are called "at risk".
Every child has trouble with learning. However, if a child finds a certain area of learning difficult consistently, it might be an indicator of "learning difficulty". This difficulty is not a problem of intelligence or laziness. In fact, these children have an average or above average intelligence.
A "learning difficulty" refers to a condition in which a child finds it difficult to learn in a typical manner. They have trouble in performing specific types of skills or completing tasks if they are taught in the conventional ways. The ability to receive, store, process, retrieve and/or use information is different from other people. There is a discrepancy between the child's actual ability and his/her performance level.
The most common types of learning difficulties involve reading, writing, math, reasoning, listening and speaking.
Children in the Autism Spectrum
•Autism is not a disease. It is a lifelong condition which one must learn to live with. Autism has been coined by Dr. Leo Kanner, from the word "autos" which means self. A child with autism experiences the world differently from the way most other children do. He/she has great trouble in making sense of the world.
•Children in the autism spectrum have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication and social interaction. They have trouble linking words to their meanings and also find it difficult to express themselves. They may be aloof, keep to themselves and engage in repetitive activities and movements. Any changes in the child's environment or daily routine could make them upset. They also have unusual responses to sensory experiences. Normal sounds may bother them terribly; a gentle touch may make them uncomfortable; certain objects/colours may attract them so much so that they are not able to take their eyes off it etc. All these signs can be detected before the child is 3 years old.
Children who are intellectually challenged are slow to learn things. They have a slow thought process and sometimes may be slow in their physical development too. In order to be diagnosed as being "intellectually challenged", a child must have both significantly low IQ and considerable problems in everyday functioning (American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychology). Some children have a high learning ability, that they may not be considered intellectually challenged later on in their life, while some of them can learn only basic skills.
Attention deficit issues
ADD (Attention deficit disorder), AD/HD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
Inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity are the characteristics associated with children who have attention deficit issues. Inattention refers to difficulties in focusing on tasks, hyperactivity refers to difficulty in controlling behaviour and the need to be in constant movement, and impulsivity refers to the difficulty in controlling impulses and acting without thinking. The degree of attention deficit varies among children.
These characteristics should be present in at least two settings (home, school, work place etc.) and must interfere with the social, academic, or occupational functioning. It is usually diagnosed in childhood and the signs can be seen before seven years of age.
Behavioural issues usually co-exist with other difficulties. Most children with specials needs have behaviour issues. They may act out of impulsiveness, self-protection or simply because they do not know what else to do. They are unable to adapt themselves to changes around them. This make them behave in unusual ways. However, they can be taught how to behave in different settings.
All children develop at different rates and in different environments. Some children have delays in development called development delays, which often slow down a child's development.
Development of cognitive skills, communication and social skills, behaviour or fine and gross motor skills may be affected. Sometimes these delays may indicate possible future learning difficulties.
However, with early intervention the child can improve. Delays can also be normal for your child, and he/she may catch up with her peers without the need for further intervention.
EARLY LEARNING INTERVENTION PROGRAMME
This programme aims to identify and support families of children with a disability or developmental delay.
We recognise that families are the child's first and most influential teachers.
A child-and-family-centred approach based on a partnership between parents and professionals is at the core of Early Intervention Programme.
The overall aim of these services is to provide parents and families with the knowledge, skills and support to meet the changing needs of their child and to optimise the child's development and ability to be part of family and community life.
Our Early Learning intervention Programme includes individual sessions as well as group activities targeting both fine motor and gross motor skills. Group sessions help build crucial skills like joint attention,turn taking and social skills.
The timings are from 10 am to 1 pm Monday to Friday
PURPOSE OF EARLY LEARNING INTERVENTION PROGRAMME -
1. Identification of children with disabilities and developmental delay.
2. Development of cognitive skills.
3. Augmenting language and communication skills.
4. Enhancing social skills.
5. Support children in their transition to inclusive set ups.
6. Provide highly supportive teaching environments, which deal with the need for predictability and routine, and with challenging behaviour, obsessions, and ritual behaviour.
7. Support for family members including partnership with professionals involved in treatments.
8. Enhance child development and functional outcomes and improve family life.
SPECIAL EDUCATION -
We provide individual sessions with the child.
The child is assessed and an individual education plan is formulated taking into consideration the strengths and needs of the child.
Sessions are available in 45 minute and 1 1/2 hour slots.

Remedial instruction aims to improve a skill or ability in each student. Using various techniques, such a more practice or explanation, repeating the information and devoting more time to working on the skills, the teachers guide each student through the educational process. A student that might, for example, have a low reading level might be given remediation on a one on one basis, phonic instruction and practice reading text aloud.
We provide instruction in the basics of reading, written language, mathematics, and study/organizational skills using innovative, multisensory techniques and strategies. These methods have proven successful in helping students learn more effectively. Our students learn how to build on their strengths, talents and abilities, and overcome their weaknesses. Our goal is to help parents and teachers understand individual differences and to give students the skills they need for lifelong learning..
We believe that every child can learn to achieve. The solid foundation for learning includes basic skills in reading, writing, and math. Learning HOW to learn, understanding personal learning styles, knowing strategies and study skills, and developing appropriate communication skills builds self-esteem and confidence which leads to success and a hope for the future.
Teachers, administrators, and therapists need to be aware of these children and their specific needs. This is where parental involvement is paramount. Parents are able to speak for the child and relay their individual needs. Schools and school systems are able to provide specific services for special needs students. Special education teachers have long supplied students with expanded learning opportunities.
Teaching Approaches Required to Instruct/Treat Students in:
•Attention and Short Term Memory
•Elements of Phonological Awareness
•Sight Word Memory
•Rapid Word Naming
Behavioral - Children who struggle with behavior issues don't respond to traditional discipline. Specialized strategies that are tailored to their specific abilities and disabilities are necessary and parents must be flexible and creative.
Developmental - Developmental issues can be some of the most devastating for a family. Parents need to be advocates and make sure their children receive the specific services they need.
Medical - Medical issues, whether chronic or serious, can affect everyone. Tests may be needed to assess what is causing the problems.
Learning - Learning disabilities vary greatly and can really affect the child's ability to progress effectively. Cognitive skills training is helpful but parents need to be persistently working with their children at home, in addition to the training.
Mental Health - Anxiety, attachment, or depression can be hard to see, and very detrimental. Parents need to seek professional help before it gets out of hand.
