Ten-year-old Nishar lives with his parents and two brothers in Sangam Vihar, Delhi. Both his parents are barely educated and the family income is quite low. Due to their elder son’s disability, they had high hopes to educate Nishar and give him a better life.
However, Nishar’s progress at school was below par and even a private tutor did not help in correcting the situation. Nishar was unable to read even small words. He could not understand the sound of alphabets in either Hindi or English. In mathematics too, his written performance was abysmal. Owing to this, his confidence was low and he also suffered from attention deficit.
Nishar’s mother shared her concern with KHUSHII’s counselor who then had a few evaluation sessions with him. We found out that he was a child with average intelligence, but was slow to grasp topics. We designed an Individualised Educational Plan for him, where we used different teaching & learning activities. This further helped in engaging him and developing his interest in studies. The plan helped him understand phonetics which improved his ability to read and write. We used Behaviour Modification Techniques to build his confidence and self-esteem.
Nishar has demonstrated remarkable improvement and a keen interest in the sessions. His concentration and attention span has also grown significantly and he is well on the way to matching his peers in studies.
Thanks to generous donors like you, KHUSHII has helped Nishar to overcome the challenges of learning. However, there are many more Nishar from vulnerable families who need our help.
Your support will ensure that they benefit from our endeavors reap the rewards of education.
