Author Name: Dr. Gayatri Narasimhan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

Parents with neurodiverse children, when they relocate from one city to another, face a big challenge in continuing the learning process for their neurodiverse child. Socially responsible employers who would like to employ neurodiverse as part of their inclusion and CSR strategies too encounter challenges as they are not able to assess the level education or skills of the neurodiverse. The reason for both is a lack of standardization in teaching methodology for the neurodiverse. 

Dr. Gayatri Narasimhan, a passionate special educator, inclusive education specialist, vocational trainer, and counsellor, with years of hands-on experience in the special education field, offers a pioneering solution through INVAS, which aims to provide students, teachers, and all stake holders with a curriculum that is measurable and uniform throughout the nation. INVAS identifies the parameters that needs to be focused to achieve the desired learning outcomes. The suggested curriculum, consisting of 13 different topics which is further divided into five levels, offers the potential to achieve the educational goals for neurodiverse. 

Dr. Gayatri believes that INVAS will enable each child to be a successful learner, be a confident individual and, be an independent and responsible employee as an adult as well.
