Igniting the spark of genius in every child
We Work to Understand Your Kids Needs
Becoming socially responsible and thereby initiating social cause is a great feeling. LISA or Leaders & Ladders International School of Autism is the outcome of this grand notion. This school of differently abled children is a world class centre for autism, set up at Kothanalloor in Kottayam District of Kerala with a vision to transform the lives of children with autism through best practices, principles and family centred holistic care.
To equip students with the skills and strategies necessary to address their shortcomings, and to achieve their own level of academic and social confidence, and future success. We believe that every child has hope for a bright future. At LISA, our main goal is to enrich our students with the skills to enable them lead full and independents lives.
To build a self-sustaining environment for autistic children and accentuate their abilities to their maximum.
Autism is not a disease, it’s a condition. Each and every autistic child is different from one another. We believe that autistic people are also a part of the society. We strive to create an atmosphere that promotes independence and self-determination for them. Each new student receives a comprehensive assessment across a broad range of skills, mainly, attention, listening, speaking, reading, writing, IQ level, communication and Behavior, Physical, Psychological and Social Skills. Trained teachers and therapists work as a team with parents and management to bring out the best in our students. Our syllabus has a holistic approach which suits every autistic student. It consists of academic and therapeutic sessions, according to the abilities and needs of each student. Socialization training is also a part of our syllabus, which we consider as an imperative element to uplift our students as essential members of our society. We don’t believe in detaching children from their homes and making their lives jailed into a constricted area. We believe that life of our children will get full meaning when they live with their parents and they can improve through regular feedbacks and support from their parents. Briefly, our aim is to reform each autistic student in an absolute manner and make them self-sufficient, so that they can go to regular schools and grow beyond that with their talents, in a period of two to three years.
