Week of Special Learning Needs

An Annual Event for Promoting Awareness about Learning Needs and Learning Disorders.

We had a wonderful opportunity of attending the seminar at OIS, Newton campus where eminent personalities like Dr. Usha Naik and Dr. Farida Raj from the field of Psychology gave their presentation on 'Inclusive Education'. It was an open forum for school administrators, special educators and psychologists. Dr. Shakila Naidu who hosted the event also gave a presentation on Inclusive Education and how we at Oakridge International School are working with the children with special learning needs.

The event started with the speech of the Chief Guest Mr. Mani Shankar, a renowned film maker who enthralled the audience with his advice to the children to be connected to their parents before it’s too late.

Supportive Instructors had an opportunity to explain their remediation process and display their material. Children from the higher grades took charge of explaining to the parents and teachers about the program.
