Swayamkrushi

Provider Description/Summary: 

Swayamkrushi located in Hyderabad was founded in 1991 by Mrs. Manjula Kalyan –a visionary and special educator, who has worked for over 40 years in the field of Intellectual Development Disorders. Swayamkrushi is a special school providing special education to children and adults with ASD, ADHD, Downs syndrome, Cerebral palsy and Global developmental delays. The facility is primarily geared towards providing safe shelter for the adult girl child. Syawamkrushi aims to train intellectually disabled adults, for independent living within the community and also facilitating their employment. The core idea consists of placing the challenged individuals in ‘Group Homes’ and providing them supervision and training. Each home has eight girls with intellectual disabilities and is managed by a resident staff member. The girls are first taught self-help skills related to daily living and to be independent, followed by academics. There are around 102 students, with varying teacher student ratio - 1:3, 1:4, 1:6, and 1:8. The centre has school bus, physio-equipment, lunch room, playground, wheel-chair bathrooms and lift. Physiotherapy, speech therapy and vocational training are the other services provided. The team at Swayamkrushi consists of special educators, speech therapist, physiotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist and pediatrician. Swayamkrushi also seeks for inclusive employment opportunities for their students. They have successfully employed a few girls in supermarkets for packaging food products and engage others to the maximum with skills such as jute work, culinary support and screen printing. Swayamkrushi also offers a B.Ed course in Special Education, a hostel facility is being geared to start soon. Swayamkrushi also functions as a nodal agency for National Trust and may be reached for all schemes provided by National Trust like Niramaya Insurance Scheme.
