Learning Disability School-The Gateway School of Mumbai

Learning disability school The Gateway School of Mumbai, a non-profit school for students with Learning Disabilities, is an ambitious endeavour by the Bodani family to bring worldclass special needs facilities and expertise to the city.
"In April 2001, when my son was barely two years old he was diagnosed with global developmental delays," said Indira Bodani, Founder of the upcoming Gateway School of Mumbai. "Having heard about the successes of modern day therapies and special education services overseas, we moved to the U.S. to provide our son with the best expert intervention available." Once Yuvraj had built his foundational academic and social skills from working closely with a multidisciplinary team of therapists and educators in New York over a period of nine years, the Bodani family believed that it was time to move back home to India.
On returning to Mumbai in 2009, Indira was disappointed with the options available for her son's further education in the city. "This is when we realised that there was a desperate need for change in the special education field in Mumbai, thus inspiring me to work towards starting our own school - one that would introduce and use research-based, internationally acclaimed practices in the field of special education."
In 2010 The Keshavlal V. Bodani Education Foundation was created to oversee the establishment of what is today 'The Gateway School of Mumbai.' In order to bring worldclass expertise to this school, The Foundation has collaborated with the Gateway School of New York, one of the most renowned special needs schools in the US. The Mumbai School campus, which is currently under construction, will measure about 31,000 square feet of built-up area and is located in Chembur. In addition to its spacious and uniquely designed classrooms, well-stocked libraries, high-tech computer labs, and several dedicated spaces for small-group/one-onone therapy and related services, the school will also feature a stateof-the-art Sensory Gym along with a large Indoor Sports Gym. The Gateway School of Mumbai is dedicated to helping students with learning disabilities between the ages 3 - 20 years. Admissions for the August 2012-2013 academic term have begun, and will continue till March 15. For its first year of operation, the school is enrolling about 40 students in the age group of 5 to 13 years.
To register for admissions, contact admissions@gatewayschoolmumbai.o rg or call 022-65223331 or 022-43214043.
Annual Tuition Fees are expected to be approximately Rs. 3 lakh per student per year
