NGO Profile :
The Indian Council for Mental Health (ICMH) is a not-for-profit organization providing education to children with developmental disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Autism, Mental challenges and hearing impairment with the aim of integrating children with developmental disabilities into society by eradicating the stigma attached to them. They run 2 special schools which are located in Mumbai at Nerul and Mulund.

Some of their programs are:

  • Individualized Education Program (IEP): The IEP sets personalized goals for each student which is tailored to suit the student's individual needs and abilities. It IEP includes every aspect of the student's development and there is equal emphasis on self-help skills, motor skills, cognitive skills, social skills, life skills, communication skills and leisure skills. Parents meetings are conducted monthly and the student teacher ratio is maintained at 6:1. Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular and extracurricular activities like educational visits, excursions, educational camps, sport events, competitions and cultural programs.
  • Vocational Training: Students over the age of 17 are provided vocational training with the aim of imparting life skills that will enable them to be integrated within the society by means of employment and also make them economically independent. The main objectives of vocational class are to develop work habits and right work ethics, impart training for development of personal skills, social skills and functional academics, and develop skills to work in a group. Students are trained to make quality products like files, envelopes, paper bags, gift bags, greeting cards, dusters independently. The Skills and Ability school in Nerul provides fully functional Pre vocational and Vocational classes with 17 students and 3 teachers.
  • Functional Academics: Functional Academics, introduced in FY15 to the academics program focuses on the daily school routine for the special children. The Right to Education also includes children with special needs. Students with intellectual disabilities can use literacy and numeracy skills to some extent which are application oriented if they are given the right kind of training. Special children are also provided various free therapies like animal assisted, occupational, yoga and speech therapy to help in their overall improvement.
