The strengths of the family

form the basis of our plans for the child

Overview of Gubbara

Gubbara is the Foundation’s first Public Private Partnership. LRF has joined hands with the government of Uttarakhand to bring early intervention services to those children who need it most. This program provides assessments, a home management plan, training and information to poor families from around the state.

It didn’t change the disability, but knowing what it was made all the difference in our family.

What We Do At Gubbara

We assess children
Children from birth to age six come with their parents for an intensive assessment. Our inter-disciplinary team of specialists works with the families to arrive at a holistic understanding of the child and her/his strengths and weaknesses.
We give Home management plan and train parents
In consultation with families, an easy-to-follow program is developed which addresses parent concerns and meets the child’s therapy goals. This program is shared with the parents verbally, in hands-on practice sessions at Gubbara and through a pictorial booklet which parents take home as a visual reminder.
We follow-up on high risk babies from NICU
The Neonatal intensive care unit has babies who may be premature or have a problem during birth. These babies are at risk. Our special program which includes a help desk outside the NICU with trained social workers and a weekly follow up program works to avert disabilities due to prematurity and very low birth weight and also prevent acquired disability due to lack of a nurturing, stimulating environment..
We Inform
Our team gives detailed information to the parents about where and how to avail further intervention services in their areas and the rights of people with disabilities. We give the families clear information on government schemes and concessions with details on how to avail. We help families in getting the disability certificate made and explain the benefits of the same.
