It comprises academic studies, training of activities of daily living, computer education, vocational training, gross motor and fine motor activities, communication skills, social skills etc.

Each class has been divided into groups on the basis of the students' functional levels and chronological age. Each group has a classroom setting where personalized attention is offered according to their various needs. Grouping of these children is a skilled job in which each child is simultaneously programmed for and taught in a one-to-one situation and in a group.

A comprehensive curriculum has been developed for each branch. The following areas are covered broadly -
