Our Approach

We believe availability and access to support systems is critical for individuals with Specific Learning Disabilities to thrive and successfully contribute to India’s growth. We are working closely with our parentes to need to build and strengthen inclusive and equitable, multi-stakeholder ecosystems. The 5 pillars of our approach are:

In India, Specific Learning Disabilities were recognized for the first time by the Rights of Persons with Disability Act in 2016.  The law guarantees the right to education, employment, and family for those with SLDs, while protecting their right to be included in the community.  This is reflected in several policies of the Government of India, including the New Education Policy 2020. However, the journey from file to field implementation is a long one, and despite of many efforts, inclusion hasn't been completely mainstreamed at the ground level yet.

At ChangeInkk, we aim to provide the necessary support to Central & State Governments to help accelerate mainstreaming of inclusion by providing a deep understanding of the issue, making recommendations based on evidence and global best practices, as well as strengthening capacities of field functionaries for accelerated implementation.

School Education

In July 2022, we signed an MOU with the Nagaland State Education Department to establish the country’s first Centre of Excellence for Neurodiversity in Kohima. Through this partnership we will support the state in mainstreaming inclusion of students with learning disabilities, by establishing enabling policies, building teacher capacity, strengthening pedagogy and curriculum to support inclusive learning environments, while developing UDL based teaching learning materials. The Centre of Excellence will take a collaborative approach, to ensure that students with disabilities are mainstreamed across grades K to 12.

Higher Education

We have been supporting AICTE to enable the mainstreaming of students with learning disabilities in technical higher education. We were a member of AICTE’s Partha Chakrabarti Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLDs) in Higher Education. The Committee’s recommendations have been accepted by AICTE, and now are in the process of being implemented.
