Some people may look at a child with special needs and see disabilities, some may feel nothing but sympathy, while others through lack of knowledge, overlook these amazing individuals completely. Priti feels she is one of the lucky ones who got an opportunity to work with children with various special needs at Banjara’s Gurukul. Children with intellectual difficulties have qualities that she feels she can only aspire to; among them are: strong mind, strength and determination, optimistic and positive attitude and above all their kindness and acceptance. For many years she has loved working with children, but she fell in the field of special education by accident. In Banjara Academy’s Gurukul under the guidance of Dr Ali she has worked on a variety of complex issues of major importance, with students with disabilities at the early childhood, middle school and high school levels. Her areas of expertise are in the academic and transition support for students with mild to moderate disabilities and behavioural support needs, including remedial classes for students with learning issues, study skill techniques and also emotional counselling for parents with children facing learning and behaviour issues. She feels that the past many years of serving as a member of Banjara Academy’s Gurukul has been a unique learning experience, one that has enriched her professionally and personally.
