NURTURE: Theraputic Transition Programme
Nurture provides intensive therapeutic & behavior intervention services to children of the age group of 12 to 18 years with intellectual disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder & associated conditions of a severe kind. It aims to make the child independent in generic skills to the best of his/her abilities. They are trained in Activities of Daily Living. They are also provided with different Therapies like Occupational/Speech/Physio according to their needs. They are also involved in Recreational activities like Yoga, Sports, Art & Craft where they socialize with their peers. We work on improving their functional skills & coping with their challenging behaviors. At the same time the program also functions as a respite for the parents.
Presently, there are 5 children with a special educator and a caretaker in an air-conditioned classroom.
