Umang strives to give persons with disability an opportunity to live life with dignity and independence.
Centre for special education is one of the largest education centre in India where the students are taught as per their ability. The program has been divided into 3 major groups.
(Recognised by NIOS) These groups follow the structured board curriculum. No concessions are given with regards to content & curriculum and the students have to appear for open board exams.
The curriculum is specially designed to teach the students basics of English, Hindi and Math. The students are trained to become efficient in reading and writing both Hindi and English, apart from this they are equipped with general awareness of environment and functional math like time, money and measurements. After functional education the students move on to the vocational training unit.
Reach out to the severely challenged with the objective of training them in Activities of Daily Living (A.D.L) and building a two way communication. After the age of 18 years these students are moved to the day care program.
Besides academic and functional knowledge, we believe education needs to include creative stimulation, physical exercise & mental health. Therefore, we embed our teaching with sports, recreation, and arts such as dance, theatre, painting and craft.
