Is educational instruction in naturally occurring community environments providing students “real life experiences Community is defined as the school, home and city community environments in the location the student lives. Students with cognitive challenges have difficulty generalizing or transferring information. When instruction is conducted with the actual materials in the natural environment where a functional skill is expected to be performed or the activity would occur, students’ progress at a greater rate. We at Shantiniketan staff and children visit various public and private places to see the functions and operations of each department, so by seeing and hands on activities students understand and learn the functional academic skills to make them independent to certain extent.
