A Note by the founder
Dance Movement Psychotherapist ADMP UK & Clinical Psychologist
No one wants to be excluded. My vision of Asha Hai is about embracing everyone and making a commitment to provide each student Inclusive education, with the undeniable right to belong. Inclusion assumes that living and learning together benefits everyone, not just children who are labeled as having a difference.
My Vision is of a society where we are able to look at all our children with equity so that they can receive the respect every individual deserves.
My mission of Asha Hai is to bring all students together under the same roof in a shared community regardless of their strengths or weaknesses in any area. Through this, we at Asha Hai seek to maximize the potential of all students. We are trying to make sure that each and every child feels welcome and that their unique needs and learning styles are not only addressed but also valued.
Every child has some extra needs, some more than the others. An inclusive environment is beneficial for each and every child. Through the various approaches, our students not only learn but also use their learning differently. Our goal is to provide all students with the assistance they need to succeed as learners and achieve high standards, alongside their peers and friends.
