Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan: A Paradise for Special Children

Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan: A Paradise for Special Children

A boon for specially abled students, Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan aims to provide world class education to those who need it most.

Schools are like second homes for children, accounting for nearly 8 hours of their day. Hence, it is necessary that we enrol our kids in fully functional, infrastructurally sound schools.

It is an undeniable fact that quality education is a must for both specially abled and able bodied children. Sending them to a school where buildings look run-down and playgrounds need work can never be a good idea.

Schools should create an environment that not only ensures learning, but also pays special attention to the mental and physical well-being of its students. Many studies suggest that students in schools with poor infrastructure tend to achieve lesser as compared to the ones studying in schools that have better infrastructure and facilities.

Contrary to popular belief, children with special needs must be enrolled in primary schools. To place them in appropriate educational settings, parents need to get them assessed by doctors, psychologists and special educators. While children with mild and moderate disabilities may be integrated in normal schools, those with severe disabilities can opt for special/remedial schools and dropouts who have problems in availing benefits of normal schools can join open schools. All the children with learning disabilities alone are first managed in the normal schools.

Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan, a charitable school for the specially abled run by Ponty Chadha Foundation is fully committed to the rehabilitation of children with mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism and other disabilities. It is one of the very few private rehabilitation institutions that don’t charge any money for services provided to its students. Presently, the institution provides rehabilitation services to about 1000 beneficiaries.

MBCN School

Designed to be disabled-friendly, Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan has 35 classrooms, 1 physiotherapy hall, 4 speech therapy departments, 1 seminar hall and various other amenities, including a ramp and sensor-operated doors at the entrance for wheelchair users. It also has a bigger ramp inside the school building for easy movement.
