V-Excel Educational Trust is based in Chennai with eight centres across the country, and has successfully been running an Educational and Vocational Training Institution dedicated to the cause of persons with special needs. As a quality service provider in the field of Special Education, V-Excel emphasizes on holistic development. The core philosophy is that every child has the potential to learn and that the focus should be on abilities, not disabilities. Through pragmatic education, specialized therapies and rehabilitation services, V-Excel empowers special persons to be dignified, independent, contributing members of mainstream society.

Their activities include:

  • Counselling & Assessments: Counselling is a process through which individuals have the opportunity to improve upon their understanding of themselves, including their patterns of thoughts, behaviours, feelings, and the ways in which these may have been problematic in their lives. The V-Excel Assessment and Counselling Clinic have one of the richest collections of standardized psychological and psycho-educational assessments. The institution has well-trained experts in the field of clinical, child and educational psychology who provide counselling, psychotherapy, play-therapy and formal assessments. Along with mainstream counselling methods, they also use Anthroposophical, Biography, and Art Therapies.
  • Therapy Services: Occupational therapy (OT) addresses patients' impairments and functional limitations with the purpose of increasing their capability to complete Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). The goal of occupational therapy is to set in motion a patient's ability to achieve the maximum potential level of independence. Physical therapy (PT) focuses on the movement of the human body. PT treatment concentrates on restoring and strengthening the large muscle groups that contribute to mobility, functional tasks such as reaching and standing, standing balance and physical activities.
  • Vocational Training: The Vocational Training Unit is a joint undertaking of the NGO and Esvi Sarada Foundation. The vocational skill areas include motor skills, computers, screen-printing, front-office training, papercup and paperbag making, tailoring, photocopying, and craft work.
  • Remedial Centre: At the V-Excel Remedial Centre, several services like formal and informal diagnostic assessment, remedial tutoring, intensive instruction on language, enrichment programmes for gifted students, etc. are offered. Fees for the remedial programmes are reasonable and timings are flexible and convenient.
