Ritham Special School
was started in 2004 with 4 students to cater the needs of special
children in and around Rajapalayam, Tamilnadu, India.
Over the years, the institution has grown from strength to strength and
as on date, it is one of the most reputed special schools in this
region. The school is currently having strength of more than 100
children with 24 staff members.
Children attending the school are mostly from
economically backward families. Many were not getting adequate
attention to their problems from the family because of the ignorance of
the parents. They are usually mild to severe affected children. We see
the kids as people with rights, who must be extended the facilities
available to other kids. Whatever talent they have must be given a
chance to blossom. The children show remarkable improvement in all
aspects after started attending the school.
The education and training of these children
differs a lot from that of normal children. Their syllabus has to
include self-dependence, etiquettes, conversation, everyday activities
etc. While chalking out their syllabus their level of I.Q. and
behavioral problems have to be considered. Their home environment is
also required to be weighed while chalking out the syllabus. Since
there is no safe method to teach these children, each child is a class
by himself requiring special attention. It is truly a Herculean task to
inculcate self-independence among the mentally retarded children.
We closely work with the community and educate
their parents about the child rights issue, government schemes for the
special children etc.. We give much concentration on the gender issue
and educate the female children and their parents about the maturity
and menstrual hygiene and how to safeguard them from sexual abuse.
Our GOAL is to prevent children from being a
burden to their families and educate them to be able to support
themselves. To pull the children away from social hatred and protect
them from neglecting eyes of their own family. We build confidence and
give them some recognition in the society. To make them aware of their
inherent abilities, skills and talents and help them realize the
importance of supporting themselves. To train them in various skills
thereby aid them in being self-reliable and support themselves.
Planning to improve our vocational training thus by giving employment
opportunity for the students. This will give them the adequate money
and enormous confidence to live independently.
