The Sankalp Annual Sports Day event took place on 27th February 2018 to felicitate their children, parents, teachers, and the supporting members of their community and to showcase the abilities of the students of Sankalp. The theme of the event was inclusiveness and it shone through everyone sitting there. We had the honor of being a part of their event this year and it was a special, life altering day for a lot of us present there. This is the first time for us participating in this sphere of special education, and we hope to do a lot more work in this sector.

|LEARNING EXPRIENCE||TEACHING EXPERIENCE|
|Every child learns differently and has individual needs. A child’s learning experience is enhanced by a commitment to inclusion through differentiation, positive classroom relations and family involvement. Positive learning experiences increase participation, enhance academic and social skills and increase attendance and retention rates.||Effective teaching involves the use of suitable teaching and learning methodologies, materials and arrangements. These include cooperative teaching, differentiation and the promotion of positive classroom relationships. A positive teaching experience enriches a teacher’s role and creates meaningful classroom experiences.|
Our immediate next step would be to conduct a workshop between teachers from Sankalp and teachers from our other community schools, moderated by our head of training to conduct an evidence-based analysis as to how well cross platforming works for inclusivity. We will also perform a needs analysis of the students to determine the next course of workshops to help them grow.
We would like to thank Mrs. Anjana Bhardwaj, the entire team of Sankalp, and NWWA for giving us the opportunity to serve and interact with the children. It is our step towards working in the special education sphere and your support and guidance will go a long way. We hope to continue learning from you and your children everyday whilst giving our trainers the exposure to explore different options to enable these children to become strong, independent, and opinionated individuals. Regular workshops for teachers and parents will be organized to ensure maximum impact and awareness.
On behalf of our entire team, we thank you for organizing such an amazing event and for doing the work that you do with so much love and patience.
