What our students say

It was a good experience. I gained lots of knowledge which fortunately will help me in my future. In this training, I got a clear picture of how one can very gently deal with special children based on their requirements which definitely one can apply while dealing with such children. The mentors are very friendly , they are always available to clear the doubts. Overall it was interesting and helpful.

I joined Insighte training program after I saw the training brochure shared in my college. I worked under an Insighte therapist for a week to understand the child and his needs. I was given the opportunity to design and customize intervention plans for him after observation. It has been educational as well as tough as I never knew so many things. We had the TEACCH training workshop which were very helpful as we learned tips and new as well as different activities that can help the child to learn and be engaged in different ways. I was hired through this training program though I am still finishing my last semester of post graduation. This is a good learning opportunity as well as an excellent work experience.
Manogya Ahlawat
It has been an invaluable experience for me as the knowledge imparted has been more practical oriented. I have learnt much, especially from the examples given by the shadow teachers and how they tackle the problems they encounter on a daily basis. It has made me more confident while working with children. The attentiveness and response from everyone throughout the training period made me feel like a part of this small group of people filled with Insighte.
