About Us

Sattva Life Skills provides alternative non-academic job training to young adults with learning difficulties, ADHD, ASD etc. to realize their full employment potential. It is an initiative of the PRAVARA Educational Trust, which was started in 2000. The Trust is dedicated to the welfare and empowerment of individuals with Autism and Other Special Needs. In its endeavour to help children with Autism and Other Special Needs, the Trust started Ananya Learning Centre in 2008, which provides therapies to and helps in inclusion of children with Special Needs in mainstream Schools. See ‘Partners’ page for more information.

Sattva Life Skills aims to provide high quality, yet affordable employability training that is aligned to industry requirements. The learning is highly tailored to each individual, with a maximum ratio of five students to one teacher and clear goals (both vocational and life skills) agreed with parents upfront based on a unique assessment of your child. These goals will be reviewed regularly and amended, as appropriate, as your child progresses.
