Cheshire Home's initiative in the area of Inclusive Education through the Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) projects involves working closely with the family members, counseling the parents. The identified Children with Disabilities (CWDs) are assessed for their disability, provide a preparatory education support at the Centre as well as through the community outreach centres/Disability Resource centres. The projects works closely with the other stakeholders like the Education Department of State and Municipal Corporation, the mainstream school authorities (both municipal/Government and private). Sensitizing the mainstream school teachers (both primary and secondary), Government pre-school programmer (Anganwadi workers), community health workers etc. All these to ensure that a CWD is enrolled into a mainstream school ensuring a smooth transition from pre-school or preparatory education programme to the inclusive classroom set up. The project also works closely with the Government initiatives like the Sarva Siksha Abhiyaan (SSA) to leverage the Government's resources in ensuring that a CWD has access to all that s/he requires.
