Why Us?

We believe all children have the ability to learn.

Brindavan offers specific goals and programs for children to ensure successful skill training, school completion, and pre vocational skill-building. These programs are provided in a holistic setting that includes social, emotional, and behavioural support.

Brindavan offers short-term and long-term training for parents, teacher and adults. These aim to help adults understand how to work with children and young adults with diverse needs, and ways to support them in reaching their potential.

Brindavan also provides community support and consultancy for creating awareness. We help in setting up inclusive practices for children with special education needs in schools and learning centres.

Ikigai

The Japanese word Ikigai means Life’s Purpose.
Finding Life’s Purpose requires that we start thinking keeping these following points in mind.

This thinking of Passion, Mission, Profession, Vocation helps you find your Ikigai.
Brindavan has found its Ikigai as an organisation. How so, you might ask?
We have passionate teachers who work towards a mission of inclusion. They have selflessly made this their profession and we at Brindavan have realised that there is a real need for this collective effort in this world.

Testimonials

I have been fortunate to have the support of Brindavan for a good number of children seen by us. Two characteristics of the teachers there - a) constantly trying to improve themselves and b) being always approachable to discuss issues with children or families - have always stood out. I see Brindavan as the true pioneer in the field of Special Education in our state (involving a large number of formal schools in their ambit) and a rare one with high competence, compassion and the ability to network with one and all. I am immensely thankful for their willingness to join case conferences around specific challenges in children and their thoughtful follow-ups subsequently. Brindavan has made my work as a child psychiatrist much easier! I wish them continued success!

We see all the teachers at Brindavan are keen in identifying the individual potential in the children with Learning Disabilities that they train. They are focused on guiding them into the field that suits each one of them the best, as they grow older. We have had trainees referred from Brindavan. Nithya Saadhana has also been invited to participate in the programs arranged for the Parent’s Support Group. We wish the organisation all success and look forward to working together in the future, for the benefit of the trainees.

I have had a long and close association with Brindavan school for more than a decade now. This relationship is very dear to me for the personal rapport I share with the staff and the students with whom I have worked. When I see a child sent from Brindavan School I need not worry too much as a lot of the groundwork has been done; hence it becomes a lot easier to work with the family and child. I look forward to many more fruitful interactions with all of you. I wish you all the very best for the academic streams you have started such as SSLC and PUC. Kudos for setting up the vocational training centre too. It is this inclusive vision that is very commendable. All the very best!

Brindavan as an institution has reached out to many students with special needs and given them a life of dignity and self respect. They have made a big difference in the lives of so many people and their families. For me in all my varied interactions with Brindavan there is one incident that would like to quote here that is more than a testimony! A couple of years ago I was asked to preside over their school day. During one of the skits the person who was performing the lead role lost the crown he was wearing. Anyone else at that time would have got quite flustered and disturbed. But this student just went on without batting an eyelid and continued the show. I was completely amazed by this act. I could understand the training that has gone in to bring in that kind of confidence in that individual. This one act showcased the training and grooming that Brindavan renders. All I can say here is a big congratulations to the leaders and all the dedicated staff of Brindavan. Keep going Brindavan, you have a lot more out there to train and give a new life.

My interaction with Brindavan Education Trust has been about 15 years. I did my special education course with your esteem organization and have never looked back. I am the chairperson of Prayag Montessori & amp; Airaa Academy and most of my team of special educators have been trained and groomed by you. Brindavan’s Seminars are a league of their own. They have always exceeded my expectations. The Seminars are always practical and realistic with their delivery and we have seen that the sessions, topics chosen, help us understand and work, using the recommended strategies to guide and help our learners meet their goals. I should definitely appreciate their choice of topics, which is what our learners, care givers and their facilitators need. Their selection of speakers are experts in the field of topic chosen and that makes the seminars more interesting to get better insight to our current learning needs. Come September I look forward for their seminars to groom my knowledge.
Thank you Brindavan for continuing to help the community learn and grow in the field of Special education.”
