About Us

Established in 1989, and located in the serene locality of Valmikinagar, Chennai, Swabodhini’s aim and goal is to empower and instill self-confidence in all our children who have special needs. Our maiden venture began with the passion to help 4 children and today, we continue to grow, and serve, as well as, empower 45 differently abled students. At our Special School, apart from providing special education and training, we also provide speech therapy and occupational therapy services. We believe that the warmth, love and encouragement that the students experience here, will bring to light, their hidden potential. Further it will also help develop their personality. The school is managed by Swabodhini Charitable Trust, which is registered under Section 12Aa of the Income Tax act.

The Government of Tamilnadu formally recognized Swabodhini School for Children with Special Needs in the year 2006.

Our History

Mrs.Radha Ganesan started her career as a teacher in a regular school when she was inspired by one very unique child with special needs. This prompted her to direct her energy towards training students with varying special needs and Swabodhini was born in July 1989. Mrs.Radha Ganesan has dedicated her professional life to changing the lives of children on the Autistic Spectrum. She strongly believes that all children, with the right educational environment, appropriate instruction and therapy and with a team of highly trained staff, can learn and thrive despite their challenges. Swabodhini's programs are based on that philosophy.
