Learning Difficulties [L.D.]

AWARENESS PROGRAMME : LEARNING DIFFICULTIES

Our LD-Awareness Programme is an initiative towards reaching out to more and more students in need. Looking at the rate at which the needs of today's learners are increasing, it is an arduous task for a team of few professionals to reach out to the huge numbers.

The course provides knowledge of child development, types of learning difficulties and the intervention require for it. The practical aspect of the course exposes our trainees to remedial therapy and various aspects of it.
