The strengths of the family
form the basis of our plans for the child
Overview of Latika Jaanch
Latika Jaanch is the Foundation’s walk-in center for assessments and home management. When it first opened its doors, it offered, for the first time in the history of the state of Uttarakhand, assessments for high-risk newborns at the government-run Doon Hospital. The Foundation was subsequently appointed lead agency to train medical and educational personnel and help establish District Early Intervention Centers (DEICs) throughout the state. This strengthened the government’s capacity and marked an important step towards early identification and accessibility for families with special children living in rural districts across the state.
Latika Jaanch’s Impact
Families can walk in directly or be referred through a doctor or the RBSK program. The children will be seen by an OPD team who will then give them an appointment with the concerned specialist/team. The assessment and report is free.
