Annamma Organization is running a Residential Special School for 135 Speech and Hearing Impaired & Physically Challenged Children at Ibrahimpatnam, Vijayawada. They are studying from Primary to 10th standard. All the children are provided free education, accommodation, food and all other basic necessities. Apart from academics the students are provided training and opportunities in art, dance, music and sports. The students are trained in yoga and other physical exercises as well to keep themselves fit. The Management Committee with their team of teaching staff and support staff have been ensuring quality education and services to the students. First priority is given to quality maintenance and upkeep of the premises and cleanliness among the students. Besides regular education, the students receive lot of additional inputs through visiting volunteers. Annamma Special School is recognized by the Government of Andhra Pradesh.
Annamma Organization provides an excellent opportunity for children with intellectual and multiple disabilities to enhance their daily living skills. At any given time we have around 35 children with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities who are being trained in various aspects of daily living skills. Three Special Educators are working diligently with these students to improve independent living and self care skills. Regular visits by the doctors and physiotherapists have immensely benefitted the children to improve their health and mobility and thus enhance their functional abilities. This type of help is reducing instances of secondary deformities among students with multiple disabilities.
People with disabilities may also require support services to help maintain their homes and meet their daily personal care and safety needs. A broad continuum of support services is available depending on a person’s level of need. Support services range from a few hours per week to round the clock awake supervision. Services can be provided in an individual’s home, family member’s home, an apartment or in a group living situation. Annamma Organization’s mission is to manage available resources in a manner that supports each person’s ability to live where and how they want as best they can. The residential service system is designed to offer informed choice and flexibility so that people may live successfully with the support appropriate to their level of need and according to their personal preferences.
