Gurpreet’s school forms the outside world for her. She interacts mostly with teachers and parents.We wanted to transform the education of children like Gurpreet so we started learning with them. We got older students and adults involved in content creation and developed and tested our resources. Gurpreet can now learn from over 300 Special Education Modules.
Our capstone service is delivering Special Education Modules (SEMs). Such a skillset gives a visually challenged child self-confidence to try out new things.
We have transformed the education of over 1000 visually challenged children.
Results have shown a 21.5% increase in average test scores.
Our engagement levels measure vs 30-40% with comparable resources.
Extensive Field Research Surveys conducted in 2010 and 2011, demonstrated audio and tactile to be the most interactive mediums for delivering educational content to the visually challenged. These led us to establish the SPECIAL methodology in designing course content and delivery. Our well researched , innovative technologies contain the best content and design for cognitive self-learning. This led us to the development of Special Education Modules.

Act to Rise for Innovation in Special Education (ARISE) Impact is a non-profit organization, enabling self-learning for the differently-abled. Since 2010, we have been developing and disseminating self- learning content, games and apps for differently- abled students.
Our founder, Abhishek Syal, invented a multi-patent pending map and diagram reader for the visually challenged children in India. While working on his research from 2006- 2010, he realized that his work was enabling self-learning for the visually challenged children. This motivated him and the founding team to launch a non-profit platform to create, develop and disseminate self-educational resources for these children. Thus began the development of Special Education Modules (SEMs) for the visually challenged.
Our visions of innovative technology transformed into a mission to make a difference. We are committed to transforming the learning process of visually challenged children through our innovative technology, resources and aids. We strive to instill confidence, spark interest, impact learning and empower the differently-abled.
