“Learning is always rebellion….Every bit of new truth discovered is revolutionary to what was believed before.”
– Margaret Lee Runbeck
Our research work started with our ABT trainees and practitioners working with the children, with an aim to understand the population better. Our ongoing research includes work with different marginalised populations by our Arts Practices for Inclusion course participants, and research projects undertaken with our children and their families at the Nelamangala campus.
At the centre, facilitators constantly document and collect data during their sessions with the children. The notes and findings from these sessions are further analysed by triangulation of assessment and evaluation gathered from qualitative and quantitative analysis of observation formats, standardised tests and ABT and API tools. Data is also collected from parents about their experiences and the home lives of the children to occupy a holistic approach to research.
