Interactive session on specific learning disability

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 18 - Shishu Sarothi, with support from Azim Premji Philanthropic Initiatives, organised an interactive session on specific learning disability (SLD) on Saturday, which was led by Dr Geet Oberoi, founder president, ORKIDS, New Delhi.

Around 50 representatives from schools such as Delhi Public School, Holy Child, Royal Global University, Maria�s Public, Cambridge International, Axel Public, SSA, Assam, Cynthia Lobo�s Preparatory and The Early Birds Montessori as well as practitioners such as clinical and school psychologists, special educators and parents attended this session.

The past decade has witnessed a spurt in the recognition of SLD in India and more recently it has been recognised as a �Benchmark Disability� under The Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPWD) Act, 2016.

As per National Brain Centre (NBRC), 10-12 per cent of a classroom in India has varying degrees of SLD. People with SLD not necessarily have low IQ, in fact they might have a high IQ, but have skill-based difficulties such as reading, writing, comprehending, reasoning, lack of appropriate expression, mathematical issues and social skills.

SLD, being a hidden disability, lacks understanding and acceptance, which leads to depression in students. Depression amongst students is a very common problem, which again is a reason behind the increasing suicides by students.
