SpecialSaathi, our organization, has an initiative of creating awareness amongst school and college faculties and staff with its program called Schoolsaathi.
The program aims to sensitise the staff towards the unique challenges and needs of children with various disabilities, especially Autism.
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. Children with Autism face a range of challenges that require understanding and patience from their teachers and caretakers. It is crucial to create awareness about Autism amongst school staff, as these professionals play a vital role in shaping a child’s educational and social experience.

Broad aspects
1. The Schoolsaathi program addresses various aspects of Autism, starting with creating awareness about invisible disabilities and neurodivergence. Many times, children with Autism may not show any visible signs of their condition, which makes it challenging to identify and address their needs. Therefore, the program educates the staff on recognizing the signs and symptoms of Autism.
2. The program also covers the challenging sensory and behavioral issues that children with Autism face. Children with Autism may experience hypersensitivity or hyposensitivity to certain stimuli, which can be overwhelming for them. Understanding these challenges is essential for creating an inclusive environment for these children.
3. The Schoolsaathi program aims to create a feasible infrastructure and resources to support children with Autism. This includes providing appropriate tools, assistive technology, and accommodations to ensure their educational and social success.
4. Another vital aspect of the Schoolsaathi program is establishing a robust and fruitful relationship with parents and families.
5. Lastly we do provide assistance in identifying the unique potentials of specially-abled children and how to include them in mainstreaming and school activities.

Global indian international school, GlIS Noida conducted a workshop on Autism Spectrum Disorder. It was an insightful session that helped the GIIS Noida staff and teachers in understanding various problem individuals face at school, work or life in general. The idea was to educate teachers who deal with such on regular basis, and offer practical solutions of helping neurodivergent children in mainstream schools, who are not unusual but special in their own unique ways.
