School teachers are sensitized and understand how the child learns which is vital in helping the child to have a regular schooling experience.

Child is able to overcome his skill deficits through remedial intervention, thereby performing to his potential in class without the need for a special school.

Enables clear communication and coordination between the class teacher, special educators and parent.

Morale of the child and confidence gets a boost. Parent feels comfortable and acceptance of such intervention is better in comparison to remediation in special schools.

The RR becomes a screening center and assists in making IEP and lesson plans.
