Disabilities and disorders affect at least 10 percent of the development of children, many of whom could have been helped through early therapeutic Interventions. Globally, about 200 million children do not reach their developmental potential in the first five years because of poverty, poor health, nutrition and lack of early stimulation. This delayed intervention may lead to permanent disabilities which include physical, sensory, cognitive, behavioural, speech, hearing and visual impairments.
Fernandez Child Development Centre
The Fernandez Foundation, in collaboration with the Divis Foundation for Gifted Children, both not-for-profit organisations, have set up one of India’s most comprehensive holistic centres for children with special needs – The Fernandez Child Development Centre. The centre provides them the full range of therapeutic and developmental support, along with ancillary therapies and services.
We individualize each child’s treatment according to their developmental needs. We do this through a cohesive team approach, which decreases multiple visits for other specialities.
Our goal is to ensure that each child develops into a self-reliant, productive adult, who leads a life of dignity and respect.
