Who We Are

Established in 2018 under the aegis of St. Andrews School and in association with Madras Dyslexia Association (M.D.A.), Akira is a not-for-profit, full-fledged independent learning center, located within the Marredpally campus of St. Andrews School. The first of its kind in Telangana, Akira offers a one or two year full-time remediation programme for students with Dyslexia and language-based learning difficulties.

What we do

Akira offers two services under one roof – Remedial Therapy (special education) and Occupational Therapy. The intention is to provide all services within one building and within school hours to ensure students are not overburdened or fatigued. The program accepts children between 6 – 10 years of age.

  • The remediation programme is offered for a period of one year at the minimum to two years at the maximum, dependent on the individual needs of the child and intensity of remediation required.
  • 1:5 Teacher - Student ratio (1 Special Educator to 5 students in each class).
  • Akira uses skill-building strategies, activity-based learning and multi-sensory teaching methods (visual, auditory, kinesthetic & tactile).
  • Syllabus: a blend of academic remediation paired with select grade level CBSE lessons from St. Andrews School.
  • An Individual Education Program (IEP) is mapped out for each child based on their strengths and needs to ensure individual learning goals are met.
  • Core subjects (English, Math, EVS & 2nd Language) are taught in Akira by Special Educators.
  • Extracurricular subjects (Games, Music, Computer & Library) are taught in St. Andrews School campus by St. Andrews teachers.
  • In-house, full time Occupational Therapy offering 1:1 & group sessions.
  • Daily Brain Gym.
  • Weekly Multiple Intelligence (M.I.) sessions.
  • Upon leaving Akira, students are mainstreamed into St. Andrews School or into their previous school.
