Namita Somani is the Founding and Managing Trustee of ASMC. She along with her husband – Suresh Somani – were inspired to establish the center owing to their own struggles of finding appropriate intervention for their son who was diagnosed with ASD during early in his childhood. Having found little to no resources that could help their son and others like him in the country, it was decided that it was necessary to open a school along with allied services which would run on the principles of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis). The introduction to the concept of ABA helped enable her son with this intervention. They wanted this help to be available to more children in Kolkata.
ASMC started small like most dreams do- by occupying one floor of a four storeyed building in 2009; and then slowly moved up to occupy the entire building. What used to provide intervention to only 6 individuals a decade ago, today serves 45. Namita and her husband, Suresh continue to be a source of strength and encouragement for many parents through their positive outlook and dedication towards supporting children with ASD and improving their lives in every possible way.
