Autism Wing

AUTISM UNIT – The Autism unit is divided into 4 classes- Autism Beginners, Autism Junior, Autism School and Autism Pre- Vocational. Their curriculum includes functional academics (English/Bengali, Maths) and daily living activities like dressing up, eating, tying shoelaces etc to secure independence and pre -vocational skills. A wide range of co-curricular classes are provided to the students such as games, yoga, art and craft. Two exclusive classes are provided only for the students of the Autism unit-Dance Movement Therapy and Synthesizer class. A new program- Social Skills Class was started this year where students were taught the elementary skills of socialization such as making friends, initiating and sustaining conversations, taking turns, consent and permission.

The purpose of this class was to assist students with Autism to develop social skills because they have prominent difÔ¨Āculties with the same. In 2020-2021 there were 46 students in the 4 classes and 2 students have successfully completed the Open Basic Education Program (OBE) level A. On 2nd April, World Autism Awareness Day was celebrated to showcase the spirit of artists with Autism. An Art Exhibition cum sale was organised by ‘Nirmaan’ in collaboration with Kolkata Centre for Creativity (KCC). Our student from ASD Junior Swastik Chattopadhyay received a prize money as his painting was selected for sale.
