Sanjaya Sharma, CEO of TIS said: “This award is a testimonial to our continuing commitment to improve the quality of education and make learning accessible to students with learning difficulties (LD). It was awarded for our various CSR initiatives, taking into consideration our partnerships, approach, deployment, voluntary activities and results.”
Some of TIS’s multi-pronged initiatives to spread awareness of LD and promote remediation include the highly successful annual Tata Interactive Learning Disability Forum (TLDF); a long-standing partnership with the LD clinic at Sion Hospital, in Mumbai; proposals for changes in the medical and teacher training curricula, and the development of a book, ‘Brain Teasers’ for students with LD and their parents, among others.
