Ethos behind Margdarshika
Skills are defined as functional as long as the outcome supports the student’s independence. For some students, those skills may be learning to feed themselves. For other students it may be learning to use a bus, including reading a bus schedule.
We can separate the functional skills as:
Walking, self feeding, self toileting, making simple requests.
Academic Functional Skill
- Math skill – Telling time, counting and using money, balancing a cheque book, measurement and understanding of weight and volume.
- Language Arts – Recognizing symbols, moving on to reading signs (stop, push) and moves on to reading directions. Reading a bus schedule, a sign in the bathroom or directions for using the bathroom.
Community Based Learning-
These skills include using public transportation, shopping, making choice in restaurants, crossing streets at crosswalks
Social Skills- In order to function in the community, students need to understand how to interact appropriately with different members of the community, not only peers and family.
Employability skills- Communication, teamwork, problem solving, entrepreneurship, self management and technology.
