Empowering children with development disabilities, and their families
  • Crisis: 72% of children with an intellectual disability don't get any help at school because the staff is not properly trained to take care of students with special needs. Hence it is often seen that children with disabilities are neglected from our education system entirely.
  • Programs: Society of Parents of Children with Autistic Disorders (SOPAN) was launched with an aim to build an inclusive schooling system for children with special needs. SOPAN mainly carries out programs such as: a) Spandan & Samarpans are two schools started for autistic kids where they provide full guidance to the students & their parents with early interventions, speech therapy, physical & mental education, etc. b) SOPAN has built various centers for training programs & research development for children with autism, their parents and teachers in collaboration with government bodies. c) The NGO also conducts community programs like awareness days, charity events, network and parent support groups.
  • Outcome: SOPAN has 4 centers currently across Mumbai. With the help of their development centers, they have impacted at least 1000+ children born with an intellectual disability with their services.
