The Chitra Lane Way

Rs. 2,490.00

The Chitra Lane School began its journey when one lady refused to give up on her dream to help children, even when she did not know how. Fifty years later, that dream is an educational institute, with over 250 students, a Resource Centre that supports children and parents from across the island, a Sheltered Workshop that offers vocational training to young adults, and an Academy that trains parents, teachers and carers on how to educate and maximise the abilities of special needs children.

More a practical than scientific guide, The Chitra Lane Way charts the progressive approach of an organisation that has learned through trial and error, laughter and tears, their own ‘way’ to meet the often specific needs of raising a special needs child in Sri Lanka. In sharing years of experience and methodology, this collective work seeks to provide useful insights in nurturing and teaching. Because all children are Special.

This is The Chitra Lane Way.

“I am particularly proud of the successful strides we have made in our unique program to overcome Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). Just by compartmentalising small pockets of time and giving it a minute or two extra each day, we have found that the results are far reaching…”

This book is ideal for any parent and educator.

It gives hands-on ideas to control screen time; supports parents in developing multi-sensorial methods to enhance academic motivation, learning skills, handwriting, reading and mathematics; and makes important self-help skills like toilet training an easy transition. All this and more is presented in a step-wise, practical, graphical manner making the Chitra Lane Way an easy read as well as a useful one.
