Najia Ali has been working at LAS since 2010. In these 10 years, she has worked with different age groups as she has been part of both elementary and secondary school. She became associated with the Learning Support department 5 years ago. Since then she has been supporting learners from Elementary to High School. She believes that LAS has been working hard in making all the learners successful, by providing them with differentiation and accommodations strategies. As LAS truly advocates for the need of inclusive education for its learners, she considers herself lucky to be part of the auspicious organization. Najia has completed her Masters in English Literature from FG Postgraduate College For Women Kashmir Road Rawalpindi, affiliated with the University of Punjab. Recently, she has become a Registered Behavior Technician, RBT.  It has been a very enlightening experience for her since it will not only help students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) but will also help to monitor and address various behavioral issues that some students are facing. 

RBTs learn the basics of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for assisting people with developmental disabilities, however, they perform under the BCBA supervisor. In short, they apply interventions to stimulate socially desirable behaviors. According to her, every human being has a right to be educated and he/she must be given opportunities to learn in their own unique way. Her belief is that all the students must be provided with a learning environment where they feel mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally secure, connected, and included.
