Anindini has been a cancer survivor and also had certain learning difficulties, known as dyslexia, yet with immense support from her family and Adhyayan Academy, she had excelled in this year’s 12th CBSE board examination.
“Children with learning disabilities tend to use the right side of their brain more and are quite creative by nature. They usually have a strong visual memory, hence we use audio visual methods and new age memory techniques to help them remember events and dates,” said Rajeev Bhatt, pioneer in teaching dyslexic students at Adhyayan Academy, Green Park. Bhatt has been in this profession for the past 15 years and has helped many children achieve good scores, along with his team of special educators.
Anandini, who had undergone a 28-hours-long spinal reconstruction surgery in May, 2014 and was bedridden for a couple of months, was constantly counselled and encouraged by her teachers at Adhyayan and her family.
She had been a student at Adyayan for the past six years and had also received a letter of appreciation from HRD minister Smriti Irani for her academic achievements in 2014. With massive support, love and motivation from her mother and her teachers, today Anindini is an inspiration to several children who have learning disabilities or medical issues.
