Snapshots from Vani Vihar, Shanti Vihar and Vidhya Vihar, Dehradun, where our just-launched doorstep therapy and special education services for kids with special needs are going on.
As part of our family-centred approach where families’ needs are foremost, we’ve been organising outreach camps in neighbourhoods, villages and towns around Dehradun for years. On July 21, we expanded that service to go to the homes of children whose parents who find it difficult to travel with their children for any reason. This is not to be confused with our regular outreach which happens in an accessible place in the place we go it, or the home visits we regularly conduct for children enrolled with us — this service is to enable us to reach children we would not be able to serve at all either through our regular or outreach services. From this month on, we’ll have a team made up of a special educator, therapist and social worker following up with children like this. #ThisIsWhyWeExist! #leavenoonebehind
