As the SEN department started working with the students, it was found that most of them were struggling with the English language skills. Keeping the needs in view, an initiative was taken to start a unit that could meet the needs of such students. It marked the beginning of English remedial unit in SEN in the year 2013. In the beginning only one teacher helped 13 students in improving their language skills. As time went on, students from main stream also joined SEN as they were found struggling in their regular academics due to their certain discrepancies in English language.

In the year 2015 English remedial department was expanded with five teachers teaching 40 students. The department has a separate library with over 2000 book that is particularly used by English remedial unit and SEN as a whole. In this department the teachers try hard to help these students to develop four core skills of English language i.e. reading/comprehension, writing, speaking and listening.
