MUMBAI, India, October 22, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
- Tata Interactive Systems (TIS) Received the Special Commendation Certificate for CSR Initiatives in the Field of Learning Disabilities
A pioneer and leader in e-learning solutions, Tata Interactive Systems, was recently chosen for a Special Commendation Certificate at the Golden Peacock Global Awards 2010. The award was presented during a ceremony at the Hotel Radisson Blu in Lisbon, Portugal.
TIS was also invited to share a presentation on its Corporate Sustainability initiative and strategies during the event. The presentation shed light on the existing scenario of Learning Disabilities (LD) in India and highlighted TIS' endeavors towards improving the scenario through sustained efforts over the past 8 years.
TIS has been involved in the cause of LD since 2002 in various roles - including funding and sustaining the existing LD certification clinic, developing student-management software, spreading awareness about the cause and, more recently, setting up the third LD certification clinic in Mumbai, India.
One of the major activities taken up by TIS in this initiative is conducting the annual Tata Interactive Learning Disability Forum (TLDF) - a platform for national and international experts in LD to meet and share information about the latest findings in the field. Over the years, the TLDF has evolved as a forum... from spreading awareness about LD to urging the community to come together and help students with LD. In 2008, TIS partnered with an LD Clinic in Mumbai, India, to conduct research on students who have undergone the LD certification process in Mumbai. The findings of this research shed light on several unnoticed aspects, the key one being the high age of LD detection. This finding became the basis of the 2009 forum - emphasizing the importance of early detection and remediation of LD in children.
This year, the TLDF will be conducted as a 3-day workshop from 18th November 2010 and will be focusing on setting up and operating independent LD certification clinics in various districts across the state of Maharashtra in India.
