Interactive Systems, we have taken up the issue of Learning Disabilities (LD)
as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility. We chose this area because it
is congruent to our skills and capabilities in learning design and development.
The three areas of LD that we are focusing on are Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, and
Dysgraphia. In this respect, we support the Learning Disability Clinic in Sion Hospital through financial grants, development of learning materials for both students
and special needs educators, and administrative support. Moreover, we have also
authored a book, Brain Teasers, comprising fun activities for children with LD.
This book has been published by Tata McGraw-Hill.
initiative that we have taken up is the TATA Interactive Learning Disability
Forum (TLDF). The TLDF is an international symposium on LD. The event offers a
platform for leading educators and LD experts from across the world to network
and share innovations and ideas to help address critical LD issues.
This event is the first of its kind in India and one of our key objectives is to increase awareness and promote remedial activities, best practices, and knowledge sharing of LD in India —we believe this is a gap that needs filling. We plan to hold this event annually from now on. Please click here for detailed information about this event.
