Chennai has been a leader in the field of special education for many years. School teachers and parents are quite sensitive to the problem of learning difficulties and are now willing to seek professional help. Unfortunately, the field of special education is short of trained and committed professionals. The problem is accentuated by the fact that the process is very effort and time intensive.

To address this need, diksa, a centre set up by Sudha Ganesh to help children with learning disabilities through one-to-one remediation in reading, writing, spelling and arithmetic has been offering a one month tutor training course to help and prepare tutors interested in obtaining specific skills to teach children with learning difficulties.
