We Intervene to Mainstream
Why Early Intervention?
During the first three formative years of an individual’s life most of the cognitive, physical, communication, social/emotional, and adaptive developments take place. Thus, in the case of any developmental delays, this period is the best for introducing interventions so that the child can be facilitated and supported to achieve faster
How Early Intervention Works?
Early prevention, identification and intervention are the three facets of Sarthak Antakshep Kendra. Early prevention and identification involves identification of problem areas in its earliest and sensitization of gynaecologists, paediatrician and health workers to control disability proneness for risk babies. Early intervention works for providing therapeutic aid to child facing developmental delays. We at Sarthak, with the aid of a multi-disciplinary team (including paediatrician, ENT specialist, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologists, and psychologists) assess the child and based on the assessment intervention services are planned and provided.
What is the impact, so far?
We have one early intervention centre at Paschim Vihar, Delhi and through this centre 825 special children are rehabilitated till date.
