What We Do
Premised on the idea of neuro plasticity of the brain and its ability to adapt and affect structural and functional changes caused by external and internal influences, that is at its peak in the birth -2 year period, and a recognition that the 0-6 years period is the critical period of development, the Early Intervention program primarily offers outdoor services for early detection, screening and management of high-risk babies, infants and young children with delayed development and disabilities. The children who are increasingly referred by medical fraternity, are assessed for delays in different developmental aspects such as physical (gross and fine motor), language and communication, cognitive, self-help, and social skills. Play way methods are deployed to ensure positive participation and involvement of the children. Therapies and appropriate interventions are demonstrated, and home management programs are explained to parents, and followed up regularly.
We believe that education encompasses much more than mere literacy and must equip the child to cope with life. With an emphasis on holistic development of each child, we prepare children with and without disabilities, for mainstream education through school readiness programs; special education inputs based on individualized education programs along with appropriate need based therapies are provided to tap the fullest learning potential and improve the quality of life of all children, irrespective of the severity and extent of disability.
Awareness & Advocacy
Disability Law Unit is a unique service that was initiated in response to a felt need for awareness and advocacy to protect and uphold rights of persons with disabilities as guaranteed by law. The DLU regularly conducts awareness programs at various levels for all stakeholders from rights holders to duty bearers and has reached out to more than 50,000 stakeholders through its programs. It campaigns and advocates for implementation of laws relating to disability. At least 40-50 pro bono litigation and public interest litigations supported by the DLU, successfully redressed grievances and violations of rights of persons with disabilities on a range of issues. The DLU-NE has formed a network of over 70 disability-related and disabled people's organizations (DPO) from across the north eastern region to share information and engage in advocacy of disability issues. DLU team members are regularly invited to provide trainings and orientation on legal mandates to bureaucrats and civil service officials.
