Amar Jyoti is a voluntary organization rendering rehabilitative services to persons with disabilities through
integrated education, medical care, vocational training, child guidance and self-employment since 1981. It
has a branch in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh also.
With the pioneering concept of integration and inclusion, Amar Jyoti is running a school where 602 children
with and without disability are studying together in equal number. The school curriculum includes vocational
training, sports and cultural activities, which help immensely in inculcating confidence and developing allround personalities. A free mid-day meal and medical care facilities are also provided during school hours.
Special Sections of the school cater to the slow learners and children with multiple disabilities. Under the
guidance of professionals at the Child Guidance Centre (CGC) and special educators, these children get
opportunities of social, recreational and vocational integration along with academic remediation as per need
under the Partial Integration Programme of Academics.
For capacity building, Amar Jyoti is running several courses of repute. A 4½ year course of B.Sc. (Hons.) in
Physiotherapy in collaboration with the University of Delhi, a Diploma Course in Special Education (DSEMR) affiliated to NIMH and recognized by the RCI and short-term courses for in-service teachers are the
popular ones at Amar Jyoti. The institution is also a recognized study center for National Open School and
Indira Gandhi National Open University courses.

training and necessary assistance for Early Intervention of developmentally delayed and children with

For its meritorious services, the institution has received several National & International awards.
With a vision of placing citizen with disability on the same platform as the non-disabled and with the
mission of removing attitudinal barriers towards persons with disabilities, Amar Jyoti is growing from
strength to strength every year.
Prevalence of Mental Retardation is significant in urban as well as rural areas. The history of training
professionals in the field of mental retardation is of recent origin in India. In the field of special education,
the first training centre was started in 1953 at Bombay by a voluntary agency, which offered a diploma in
teaching persons with mental retardation. Two more centres, one each at Madras and Mumbai, initiated
training programmes in special education in 1971. By 1980, there were nine special education training
centres in the country. By 1986, there were only six training centres and the remaining centres had been
closed down. In 1995, the number of centres offering training was 40. Out of these, 27 were recognized and
approved by Rehabilitation Council of India.
A special education programme must be seen in the overall perspective of habilitation and rehabilitation of
person with mental retardation, keeping in view diverse socio-economic settings, rural/urban location,
culture groups and specific needs of the persons with mental retardation pertaining to age, severity, and
family background, ecological and social milieu. It is well-recognized that children should be able to
assimilate knowledge and skills from different disciplines and integrate and include them into the
educational programme, where specialist would continue to serve as essential resource persons.
To meet the ever increasing demand of special educators, Amar Jyoti started the teachers training in 1998
which has now become a global centre imparting training in special educators more than 150 people every
