Do you remember watching the movie Taare Zameen Par? The movie raised awareness among people about learning disabilities and it also inspired me to do something. Having worked as a special educator for several years, I decided to focus on Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). I have also attempted to bring in my experience of working with children with learning disabilities to make them independent and ‘fight their own battles.’ Specific Learning disabilities are not emotional disturbances, intellectual disabilities, or sensory impairments. They are not caused by inadequate parenting or lack of educational opportunity.
