Counselling Unit

The need for a counselling unit arose with the realization that counselling is of utmost importance with children with disabilities and their parents. The unit assists parents in understanding the special needs of their child by assessing psycho social aspects related to disability, and to cope and manage the situation. Few of the main activities of the unit are to promote awareness about disability through school awareness programs, providing counselling with parents through individual and group sessions, conducting workshops on stress management of parents. The unit also networks with other organizations working in the field of disability for allocating resources to meet the immediate needs of children with disability.
