gimrc3.jpg (44270 bytes)As normal mental capacity of these children is restricted, they cannot be educated by the normal methods in normal schools like average healthy children. These children are often mistakenly considered uneducable and allowed to languish in neglect and social deprivation. By the adoption of suitable techniques, these children can be well trained and. made fit for leading near normal life. All behaviours are modifiable and small classes make individual attention possible.

Training in adaptive skills is through the medium of play and music. For physical fitness, outdoor sport, Yoga and gardening are utilized.
