This is a multi-disciplinary special clinic for diagnosis and management of all developmental challenges, providing medical care, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, Counselling and special education.

Till date we have diagnosed 590 children and have provided over 7200 therapy sessions.

This unit provides regular, structured, play based educational support programs and group activity to children with mental challenges and learning & behavior problems. Here we stimulate all-round life-skill development & ADL and help prepare them for main-streaming to regular  schools . Our major focus is on improving communication skills, socialization, attention and concentration, through play, music, sensory integration and simple Yoga in addition to basic education. Close monitoring of each child is assured by maintaining a 1:4 teacher student ratio.

Presently we have 65 students enrolled with us, ages ranging from 3-18 years. Of them about 60% children have autism. Other problems include mental retardation and global developmental delay, cerebral palsy and learning disabilities.

The children performing

Our very special children from our Special Education Unit staged a cultural program “We shall overcome” at the Annual Celebration of our parent organisation, Nanritam, at one of the premier Halls in Kolkata.

The children gracefully performed before a gathering of more than 300 audience which included many elite personalities from the city. It was a moment of great pride to us and all the parents too, when loud applaud filled the hall.

Well done kids! YOU REALLY DID IT!!
