    Tapovan – A Journey
    SCHOOL & HOSTEL FOR MENTALLY CHALLENGED
    In an effort to care for the mentally challenged children of the communities. Tapovan opened a Special School in 1991, with 6 students.
    Trained Staff
    “Tapovan” has been providing special education to the mentally Disabled children through the efforts of our well trained staff, who are wall qualified in special education. The teachers have all been trained but the extraordinary thing about Tapovan is the atmosphere of love which surrounds it and the extraordinary support it gets from its vibrant Parent/Teachers Association.
    Special School 
    The special school for the welfare of mentally challenged children provides boarding and lodging facility in the hostel attached to the school, maintaining the children with care.
    Present strength in Special School
    The present strength of the school is 139.
    Bus Transport Facilities
    Previously the students of our school used to reach the school by three wheelers and by hired vehicles. Now we have arranged Buses for their transport which made them easier to reach the school in time and to return to their homes happily and in good spirits.
    Identification of mentally handicapped children
    The staff of our institution usually proceeds to the tribal and backward areas for the purpose of identification of mentally handicapped children and to assist them to cope with the daily routine in a purposeful way. The parents of these children cannot come to the institution for any counseling, which is essential, or for admission as they are far away from our institution and this is due to ignorance, lack of knowledge and sufficient information and due to their financial difficulties.
    Therapies and Trainings provided to special children
    We are providing behavior modification of the mentally handicapped through the services of physiotherapy, speech therapy, music therapy, yoga therapy and special education techniques by a team of interdisciplinary teachers, whom we approached by paying visits, who are employed in other noted institutions.
    We have train our students in daily living skills, who are unable to do their daily chores, like eating, dressing, grooming, and also toileting etc. The main purpose of this training programme is to infuse confidence in them, to make them feel that, they are quite efficient and can attend to their daily needs with more confidence thans ever as the ordinary children of their age group and move in the society with some satisfaction facing challenges. Training is also provided to the children in vocational training like candle making, chalk-making, doll-making, paper-cup making, preparation of Vaseline and gardening etc. We have some plans to go in for sheltered workshops, where note books preparation and dairy-farming can be taken up to produce easily marketable items. If such mentally disabled children are given such attention by our experienced staff in such activities as mentioned above, the self confidence of the students will grow more and pave the way for the development of human resources aspect.
