Autism is a neurological symptom which refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviours, speech and non-verbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children.

On this World Health Day, it is important to make parents aware, that there may be no cure for such symptoms but there is hope. The research published helps us summarise that there have been 89.22% improvements in children with autism with the right treatments and therapies.

Every child is different, every child is special, and children with autism are such special children. They are a part of our environment and are our loved children as any other normal child. We believe that these children should be integrated with society and our aim is to ensure these children move from special schools to mainstream schools. A difference can be made in the lives of these children with the help of the right therapies and treatments such as Speech, Aquatic, ABA, Occupational and Autologous stem cell therapy.

Our past experience has shown children move from special schools to mainstream schools. Some of the children have developed social, verbal and cognitive skills, their attention span and concentration levels have improved. They have shown a drastic reduction in hyperactivity and are also more independent. They now learn things much faster and help their parents go grocery shopping and even cook meals for a proper tiffin service which they run as their own business. Some of them have excelled in various extra-curricular activities and have participated in major food competitions hosted by the famous chef Sanjeev Kapoor and won them twice. Some have developed animation skills, while others have started singing and performing difficult dances like Bharatanatyam.

One of the special child has also won swimming competitions at the state and national level. Some play difficult instruments like the sitar while others work hard and pass the 12th grade and teach deaf children.

Today we believe that every child is unique and they all have an important role to play in society and we work to ensure that they can make a difference like we are making in their lives. We try to educate parents on how to deal with such special kids. Also, we shed light on how rays of mobile phones, frequent use of devices like laptops, tabs, food etc all play a role in the lives of such kids.
