AADI is an acronym for Aatman Academy’s Diversity Inclusion Program, which aims to serve the needs of early years learners with special needs and equip them to be “inclusion ready”

The focus and schedule of AADI program

The primary focus of the AADI program is individualized, flexible pace learning through small group instructions.

The key focus is on flexibility and dynamic learning. It consists of a series of small group intervention activities that pan out for 2.5 hours each day.

Parents can choose between the following options :

With the NEP 2020, schools are taking big strides towards Inclusive Education. However, a key factor needs due consideration – preparing a child and parent for an inclusive setup. The AADI program aims to equip the child to navigate through the rigor of an inclusive classroom.

This program also aims to empower the parents to be advocates of their child’s special needs and pave the path for Inclusive Education in their child’s school.
