Amar Jyoti Charitable Trust
In 1982, Amar Jyoti started a school with a pioneering concept of educating children with and without disability in equal number from nursery to class VIII. Having started with an integrated group of 30 children under a tree, the school has about 450 children with and without disability studying together in equal number today in Delhi and 275 children in Gwalior.
The pathbreaking venture of inclusion & integration at Amar Jyoti has been a big success. What makes it more challenging is the inclusion of children with all types of disabilities. While some of the mild cases of hearing impairment are integrated into regular classes with a provision of hearing aid, the profusely impaired are being educated in a special class in the same premises. Similarly the visually impaired, physically challenged and intellectually delayed are being given opportunities for full participation and a life with dignity.
The sports and cultural activities also have the non-disabled and children with disability exhibiting their talent. The regular message being conveyed is that â€œWe are second to noneâ€. The holistic approach of providing medical care, vocational training and inclusive education makes Amar Jyoti School an exemplary institution
The mentally challenged and profound deaf have special sections and are socially integrated. The orthoepaedically handicapped and visually impaired are integrated with the non disabled in regular classes. Mild and moderate cases are trained and included as per special educator s advice. All the teachers are trained in special education. The parents are also involved for various programmes.
Inclusive education has become a reality at Amar Jyoti Delhi and its branch in Gwalior because of the necessary infrastructure, trained teachers, inter-disciplinary team of required professionals and provision of necessary assistive devices. Vocational training, sports and cultural activities are a part of the school curriculum. There is a well equiped library for audio-visual teaching, science lab to give practical training in science subjects and a language lab fitted with linguaphones to enhance English language skills of students. Provision of LCD Projector in the Computer lab facilitates the training. The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment supports the education of children with disability at school.
There are nine Special Sections for 107 children with special needs. They are put in separate sections only for academic purpose, for all other activities like games, music, assembly and vocational training they are put together with other children. This interaction raises their confidence level so much that to some extent they do well in studies also. For academics also they go to regular classes for different subjects according to their performance. This year eight children of these sections have passed VIIIth class from National Institute of open Schooling (NIoS). Four will be appearing in class Xth and two in class XIIth. over the past ten years about 50 special children have passed class VIIIth & class Xth from NIoS. It has been a big achievement for these children with special needs.
Special olympics was another occasion where these children showcased their talent in different competitions.
The Library of Teaching Learning Materials (TLM) is being used effectively. The TLM has been further enhanced by the addition of Montessori equipments. Hearing and speech impaired children are given basic training in lip reading and sign language, after that they are integrated in different classes as per their performance. Children with visual impairment are initially trained in Braille, and then are integrated in regular classes. This year some of these children were integrated in I, II, III and IVth Standards. Some of them are good in vocal music also.
A big milestone in the history of Amar Jyoti School was the establishment of a language lab to train our students in spoken english. Spoken english training begins from Nursery.
Empowering through vocational trainingâ€”Besides academics, vocational training also forms an important part of school curriculum. This training is specially beneficial for children with disability.
The Community Based Rehabilitation project has been completed with positive community development in 30 urban slums of Delhi. The services are continued through various other projects of Institution Based Rehabilitation & Community Based Rehabilitation at the centre.
Child Guidance Clinic To ensure all round development of children and to maximize their potential to learn and grow, The Child Guidance Centre as an integral part of Amar Jyoti Charitable Trust was started in 1990. The highlights of this centre are the Early Intervention Programme and the Psychological- Psychometric Assessment which hold lot of significance when dealing with children having special needs
The Child Guidance Clinic, consisting of two units of Psychometric Testing and early Intervention Programme has a busy schedule with the number of registrations for both the units going up by 22% this year.A record number of 550 cases have been assessed in the last year for educational placements, behaviour management and counseling. There have been several efforts to enhance the professional competence of faculty working in the Amar Jyoti School and the Child Guidance Clinic..
The objective of Early Intervention Programmeare as follows, namely
Â· to start early intervention of developmentally delayed children
Â· to train parents to facilitate development and to prepare the children for placement in the appropriate educational setup
Â· to organize remedial help for school children facing achievement problems
Â· to work out behaviour modification schedules for children presenting behaviour problems
Â· to motivate parents for increased involvement for psycho-social adjustments
Awareness about the Early Intervention is growing and there is a steady increase in the number of children being registered every year. Children with intellectual challenges, neuro-developmental disorders etc. are identified by doctors, at schools, neighbourhood and by Psychologists, are brought in by the parents. The Early Intervention programme or Home Training programme is an ongoing project.
Psychology- Psychometric Assessments
Children from nearby schools, who face some academic achievement or behaviour problems are referred for assessment, guidance and counseling. The numbers of cases are increasing every year for varied assessments and academic evaluation.
To ensure all round development of children and to maximize their potential to learn and grow, the child guidance centre is rendering useful services. References are coming from neighbouring schools and professionals in the field of disability for assessment and therapeutic interventions. The inter-disciplinary professional team available at Amar Jyoti provides a potential service delivery model.
Along with these objectives the child guidance centre has also taken initiatives in conducting Parents awareness cum training programmes from time to time. Parents interactive sessions hold a special significance. These sessions are organized twice a month on the topic of interest suggested by the parents having children with special needs. Professionals, Experts, Resource persons from various disability sectors are invited to orient the parents as per the topic selected.
The social work department facilitates following major activities.
â€¢ Procuring disability certificate for Persons with Disability in the campus held by department of Social Welfare of Delhi Administration.

â€¢ Disseminateing information regarding, concessions, disability certificates and other benefits to Persons with Disability.
â€¢ Motivating community volunteers for remedial teaching, Art & Craft, and recreational activities .
The Placement Unit at Amar Jyoti, this year, had better prospects due to regular interactions with IBM, FICCI, CII, NTPC, PepsiCo, Andhra education Society and many other organizations.Several persons with different abilities have been selected by Barista Coffee, I.B.M. During 2007-2008, 930 persons were counseled.This process has enhanced their confidence resulting in visible changes in their personality.
The Pepsico has put up a kiosk for employment of a person with disability at Amar Jyoti as a pilot project. Self-employment has come up like a beacon light and big hope for the persons with disability for their economic rehabilitation. There is a great flexibility in the working conditions in self-employment.
Many school dropouts with disability who have opted for self-employment have been motivated to go in for education once again. They have agreed to improve their educational qualification through N.I.O.S. courses. Whenever required, mock interviews are arranged for the candidates to boost their self-confidence and morale.
