|The program is designed for
children aged 4 to 12 years. The "ABACUS" is used to teach the children, where
they use both the hands to manipulate the beads. In the initial stages, they take the help
of the abacus to work out the problems. Gradually the abacus is taken away and the child
performs the manipulation of the beads mentally. This enables them to achieve a high level
of speed, efficiency, accuracy, concentration and increase in memory power.
