Who Will Benefit:
Currently, ASMC is the only place in India where this program is available. This program is designed for children under 4 years and whose parents can afford to provide full-time intervention at home. The home is the ideal setting for early intervention because this is where the child spends the most time and is the most comfortable. Even the research conducted on early intervention programs are usually home-based. Parents have a very important role to play in this kind of intervention, resulting in greater practice and generalization of the skills learned by the child.
Initial goals include teaching communication and learning readiness, which includes- attention, imitation and co-operation. Once these skills are developed, the goals expand to include visual performance tasks, receptive and expressive language development, social skills, play skills, self-help and academic readiness.
Teaching is on a 1:1 basis. We use interactive, play-based teaching methods, creating opportunities for each child to learn in a natural environment. Once a positive learning environment is established, we will adopt a structured, table-top approach.
