We use the UPANAYAN package, which has been specially developed for systematic early intervention training by teachers / Parents. Parents / Caregivers are encouraged to actively participate in the programme in order to empower them to play a significant role in the child’s Development. This Will Enable a Happy Connect in the Child’s home Environment. The Child’s Progress will be periodically evaluated and documented, based on which new goals will be set.
