 When learning became fun!
Pooja was a student of 6th grade. As she was not receiving any support or guidance from home, she could not perform to the fullest. As a result she lagged behind in her studies and was a disinterested child. After learning of Bhagini Nivedita Pratishthan study centre, Pooja started coming here regularly. She was introduced to different techniques of learning such as games, puzzles etc. and started enjoying studies. Attending the study centre helped her at studies, through reading & writing skills, mathematical games, science experiments and personality development programs which were conducted at the centre Today, Pooja is in 7th grade. She continues to attend the centre regularly and actively participates in all the programs. She has improved at her studies and has developed leadership qualities. Today she is a positive and an independent girl.
 Savani: A new world of speech
Shweta, mother of Savani says: Savani is three years old girl. She was able to speak very few small words like Kaka, Kaku, Baba, Papa, Aai etc. She could not speak words starting La, Ra, Va etc. Savani started visiting BNP twice a week. Within three months there was remarkably positive improvement in her speaking abilities. BNP Therapists helped and guided her through sessions. Now Savani can utter her own name, and her parents names. Teachers and her parents are confident that Savani will pick up speed and improve. The similar case is of Manali. She is 12 years old. Her parents are also deaf and dumb. So there is no guidance from them. When she came to BNP she could not speak up a single word. In BNP Centre teachers took efforts for her through different speech correction methods such as TVA (Tactual, Visual and Audio) Now she can speak many simple words useful for day to day life. Her writing, reading and lip reading has improved
