Welcome to Disha Special School – one of the Centres of Excellence for Autism and developmental disabilities in the country. The Centre provides all the required therapies by a highly committed team of qualified, trained and certified professionals under one roof. Disha has created its own benchmark by adopting evidence based practices, World-class methodologies and State of the Art technology for each therapy. Disha follows a highly structured individualized education and therapy program based on each child’s developmental needs and strengths. Customized Apps developed by a subsidiary of USA based company for various learning skills are extensively used. These Apps have proved to be a great boon for speedy learning of the children. Disha School is one of the first Autism Centres in the country who adopted the latest US curriculum (Unique Learning System) and for its implementation all the professionals of Disha are trained by an Expert Trainer from the USA. In order to develop a sense of self esteem and to gain social acceptance by becoming meaningfully employed in a vocation of self aptitude, all children above 15 years of age undergo an elaborate Skills Development (Vocational Training) program. More than 75% of Disha’s beneficiaries come from Below the Poverty Line families, who receive all the services including medical intervention free of charge. Utmost love and care by the teachers has made Disha a happy and safe Learning Place.
