Education therapy and learning clinics for children with learning difficulties are becoming viable, reveals study
With a stress on inclusive education and legal rights of people with disabilities, education therapy and learning clinics for children with learning difficulties are being viable, revealed a study done at Disha Foundation in Jaipur.

Education therapists and learning clinicians specialize in educational interventions comprising of cognitive training in reading, spelling, comprehension, calculations, visual information processing, study skills, and memorization.

The abstract of the study titled "Viability of Education Therapy and Learning Clinics as Skilling and Intervention Package Development Entrepreneurship Areas: An R&D cum Training Outcome at a Special School" by the lead researcher Dr Lalit Kishore has been accepted for a two-day Interdisciplinary Conference on Business Innovation, Social Sciences and Technopreneurship (CBISST) is going to be held on June 24 and 25 in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.

"With little attention being paid to the education of children with learning disabilities, the idea of education therapy and learning clinics is catching up in terms of developing and validating the therapeutic interventions and creating literature for such children on the principles of adaptation, accommodation and inclusion," says the researcher at Disha.

Under the study, an attempt was made to develop one-line poems and creating a draft copy of materials in form of biggish poem strips with visual support since children with special needs require low word load and a lot of repetition. Since learning by such kids has to be differentiated and individualized or child-centric, each child would require the set of 10 strips (22 cm X 14 cm) with text and visual codes. A try-out of the single-line visually supported poems was undertaken with special educators who reacted positively to the intervention during a training programme.

The development of complete package of ten single-line poems as an education therapy suggested viability of its marketing to the special schools and general schools practicing inclusive education. Implication of the intervention is to look into the viability of education therapy and learning clinics as skilling and intervention package development entrepreneurship areas.

For the conference, the research or review papers from all the branches of engineering, science, humanities and management have been invited from researchers and practitioners.
