Recently, as many as 1,500 special care centres were launched by the Kerala government across the state to assist differently-abled children in state schools, as per the report by the Hindu. These centres were launched under the Samagra Shiksha scheme with the aim to give individual support so as to bridge the learning gap between them and their peers. Customised learning materials, autism therapy and orientation for parents will be provided through these centres for the academic growth and skill development of these children.
