Mohan has come a long way since the day he joined the Nandavanam family. From being a restless, dependent and speech-impaired child, Mohan has bloomed into a more settled, sociable and self-reliant young man.
On arrival, Mohan (name changed) had many behavioural issues including body restlessness and over-laughing; he wasn't participative and was bogged down by sleep and speech struggles. Over time, we worked on him through speech and physical therapy, classroom activities like chanting, clay work, etc. and even group activities with peers, while maintaining a daily rhythm at school and home. Today, he has become more confident, with a great demeanour and an improved physical structure.
At the Nandavanam Centre, we use techniques like physiotherapy and engagement activities to give many such children a new lease of life through care and learning.
