Foundation Course Next Batch Start in June 2015

Prevalence of Mental Retardation is significant in urban as well as rural areas. The history of training professionals in the field of mental retardation is of recent origin in India. In the field of special education, the first training center was started in 1953 at Bombay by a voluntary agency, which offered a diploma in teaching persons with mental retardation. Two more centers, one each at Madras and Mumbai, initiated training program in special education in 1971. By 1980, there were nine special education training centers in the country. By 1986, there were only six training centers and the remaining centers had been closed down. In 1995, the number of centers offering training was 40. Out of these, 27 were recognized and approved by Rehabilitation Council of India.

A special education program must be seen in the overall perspective of habitation and rehabilitation of person with mental retardation, keeping in view diverse socio-economic settings, rural/urban location, culture groups and specific needs of the persons with mental retardation pertaining to age, severity, and family background, ecological and social milieu. It is well-recognized that children should be able to assimilate knowledge and skills from different disciplines and integrate and include them into the educational program, where specialist would continue to serve as essential resource persons.

To meet the ever increasing demand of special educators, Dr Anniebesant School runs the FC cources in MR which is affiliated by Bhoj University. It has recently restarted the programs, Those who are interested in joining the second batch kindly contact the school authorities.

The Batch strength is small and the admission in one first come basis. So HURRY!
