  OUR PROJECTS  
  RELIGIOUS BRAILLE TRAINING  
 
 
  Shahzad Khan Special Educational Society is the first institution offering both secular and Islamic studies to people with visual impairments. Since the insitution opened its doors, it has managed to enrol many full time students. It has also trained other people with visual impairements who were already able to read English in braille to read the Quran through Arabic braille. The core aim is to save and strengthen their imaan.
The students are also taught hadith as well as life skills such as grooming, personal hygiene, daily living activities for example washing clothes, walking with a cane stick, combing, gardening, playing football as well as other extra curriculum activities that are vital for an independent life.

 
     
  PERKINS BRAILLE SYSTEM  
 
 
  Reading and writing perkins braille has been a priority for The Shahzad Khan Special Educational Society since its founding in 2008. To this day, braille courses are our most popular courses. Shahzad Khan Special Educational Society provides various braille courses for those who are blind.
Literacy for all-sighted and blind. It seems like a pretty simple concept. Yet despite the enormous proven advantages that literacy offers, families with blind children often have an uphill battle in ensuring that their child is taught to read and write. To succeed in school, work and life, blind people need the opportunities that literacy provides. Research has shown a correlation between a blind person's learning of braille and lifetime achievement. One study shows that only 30% of blind people are employed, but of this group, 90% are braille readers.

 
     
  MOBILITY TRAINING  
 
 
  Shahzad Khan Special Educational Society wants to empower people with disabilities to achieve their human rights through equal participation in different activities of life through easy mobility.
Students with disabilities may experience a range of different mobility impairments that might require accommodations in school or university settings. The mobility impairments can range from ones related to a person's stamina to ones associated with paralysis.
Some of the mobility impairments students may experience involve conditions that are present from the time of their birth, while others are the result of physical injury or illness. A student's injuries may cause various types of mobility impairments and involve different areas of the student's spinal column, for example.
Students who experience back disorders might have limitations in their ability to stand, sit, bend, walk, or carry objects such as books or other school-related materials. Examples of back disorders include things such as scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, or herniated disks. Some students have paraplegia; something involving paralysis of their lower extremities that is caused by an injury to their lower back. Students with paraplegia many times use manual wheelchairs and have full use of their arms and hands. Students with quadriplegia experience paralysis of their extremities due to a neck injury, and do not have the use of their arms or hands, many times using power wheelchairs to achieve mobility.
 
     
  COMPUTER TRAINING PROGRAMS  
 
 
  The Computer technology play a significant role in education for children with disabilities. For every child who has special needs, computers create a bridge over the educational gaps that teachers left behind, that way the children have become much more independent. Children with disabilities may use their skills in many activities to resolve problems from real-world, to help them computers have applications, such as word processing and word prediction software, communication and networking technologies, CD-ROM reference materials, hypertext and multimedia.  
     
  SPECIAL MUSIC TRAINING CLASSES  
 
 
  From dancing with your baby to hearing the notes of your child's first composition, Shahzad Khan Special Educational Society is that one special place where you and your child can play, sing, dance, giggle, and share together. A trained, licensed Shahzad Khan Special Educational Society educator joyfully guides the class from one activity to the next and helps you understand what your child is learning musically, cognitively, and developmentally.

  MATHEMATICS BRAILLE TRAINING  
 
 
  Math Strategies for Learning
There are many simple strategies that we use to help our braille-reading student put the 'pieces of the math puzzle' together. The following list of learning strategies is being used with our entire class:
Include your braille-reading student in all of your lessons and teach them the same concepts as the rest of the students in your class. Never assume that this student will not be able to learn a concept because of their vision.
Ensure that your braille-reading student understands the concepts and steps of the operation though low-tech tools, such as manipulatives, the abacus and brailler before using high-tech devices.
Verbalize anything that you write on the board. Give specific and detailed verbal instructions. Verbalize what you are looking at rather than saying "this problem over here" or "who can tell me what's wrong with the answer on the board." Your student will need to know what the problem is before he or she can attempt to understand and answer such a question.
Encourage plenty of dialogue about the concepts being learned. For example, your braille-reading student can be paired with his or her peer to discuss or manually show to solved a problem.
Relate math concepts to things that are already familiar to your braille-reading student. Integrate math concepts, such as geometry, with orientation and mobility practice.
Provide opportunities for your braille-reading student to show you how to solve a math problem using their manipulatives. This strategy can also be used for test taking.
Class notes can be provided from you or from a friend and brailled for the student as soon as possible. The best situation is to have the notes brailled ahead of time so that he or she can follow your lesson.
Ensure all handouts and notes are transcribed and ready to hand out with the materials for the rest of the class. Consider how concept gaps can develop if students don't have the necessary materials they need for their learning.
