CHENNAI:Tamil Nadu State Council Educational Research and Training (SCERT) and Madras Dyslexia Association (MDA) on Monday began a five-day training programme for government school teachers to help them manage students with learning disabilities.

Around 40 teachers participating in the first session of this programme will be trained to remediate children with mild to moderate learning difficulties. Dyslexic children in primary classes will be mostly easily remediated since the learning gap will be minimal, said D Chandrasekhar, founder of MDA speaking at the event.

“Each year, many kids are forced to drop out of schools because of their learning disabilities and even parents fail in early intervention,” he said, adding that children with such disabilities should be included and understood in school environment.
