Part Time Remediation

After school remediation has been one of the earliest activities of MDA. In 1992 when children were identified as having a specific learning difficulty or dyslexia and teachers were trained to teach these children, for the first time children were offered after school remedial help . This after school remedial help has been beneficial to children who have a mild to moderate difficulty. Many children benefited from this support and have gone on to finish their schooling successfully.

Remedial education is :

  • individualized
  • systematic
  • cumulative
  • starts from the comfort level of the child
  • uses a host of multi sensory methods
  • uses the strengths of the child to work on his needs
  • is documented to note small changes and if there is a learning plateau, this feedback is used for making changes in instruction

The advantage of an after school remedial programme is that the child gets the intervention alongside his schooling.


A dedicated group of teachers has taken this service through, over the years. With patience and a keen eye to observe and plan, the remedial teacher motivates and builds skills.

Every year several children are enrolled in the programme and are helped with skill building and are successfully remediated.

Younger children receive intervention in basic skills. Older children additionally need study skills training as well to make them independent learners.

Success Stories


A child who is smart but seems to be lazy in completing his work, may not be lazy but may have dyslexia..!
