Akira: An Initiative by St. Andrews School for Dyslexic Children

Over the years the number of students requiring remedial instructions has been on a rise. St. Andrews school has a Department for Supportive Education, which aids such students in their academics. But children with more serious learning difficulties needed to be addressed independently. This realization led to the birth of Akira. In the past, these students were perceived as lazy and tagged as underachievers with low intelligence quotient. What may look like carelessness or lack of effort from the part of a student were, in fact, early indicators of Dyslexia.

Increased awareness in recent years has changed this perspective concerning Dyslexic children. Dyslexia is a mere learning difficulty and not a disability. With the right teaching techniques and learning strategies, students can easily tackle the challenges they face. Dyslexic children have proved to be quite intelligent, with average to above average intelligence. Akira understands that each child is different and has unique strengths, which have to be identified in order to tap into their academic potentials.

“Dyslexia is merely a difficulty, not a disability…” says Mrs. Alana Emanuel, the Director of Akira. Extensively trained by the Madras Dyslexia Association, Mrs. Alana is determined to make a positive difference in the lives of her students and to spread increased awareness and acceptance concerning Dyslexia and other such learning difficulties.

The Specialization that is required to handle children with learning difficulties
All teachers of Akira undergo an ‘Intensive Teacher Training Program’ at the Madras Dyslexia Association, Chennai. The course covers six weeks of theory and one week of practical, following which the teacher’s intern at Akira for a period of two months. In addition to this, the educators at Akira undergo continuous training and periodical monitoring by the MDA throughout the year. Akira also has a full time in-house occupational therapist, which is also monitored and guided by the MDA.

Apart from this the teachers of the primary and middle school of St. Andrews have also attended an awareness program and various workshops conducted by the Madras Dyslexia Association (MDA). This will enable the teachers to identify students with learning difficulties in the classroom itself. During this training, teachers were taught various techniques to identify children with Dyslexia. The focus was on adopting a multi-sensory approach to learning, using auditory, visual, kinesthetic and tactile approaches. This multisensory methodology has enabled the teachers to make learning more comprehensible to all students irrespective of their academic capabilities.

Future Approach
In the coming years, we envision Akira to be a pioneer in breaking the stigmas associated with learning difficulties and would constantly strive for imparting increased awareness regarding Dyslexia. Thus, we hope to expand Akira nationwide making the full time pull out remediation program more accessible for children with learning difficulties, says Mrs. Alana, Director of Akira.

Akira is one of a kind specialized learning centre for children facing learning difficulties. Akira also has to its credit to being the first institution in the state of Telangana, to be exclusively dedicated to Dyslexia.
Akira offers a full time pull out remediation program for children with Dyslexia.
