Saathvik, Center for Autism, established in 2017, aims to educate and train children with Autism in Pollachi and Coimbatore rural areas. Autism, a neurodevelopmental disorder, presents challenges in social skills, repetitive behaviours, and communication. With 1 in 59 children diagnosed, lack of awareness and financial constraints hinder their integration into society.
Recognizing their potential contribution, we volunteer to support these rural children. They deserve access to quality training. Our project primarily offers ABA therapy—an evidence-based and costly intervention globally. Saathvik ensures no child misses out due to financial constraints.
Data collection is integral for monitoring each child’s progress in our program. With support from all quarters, we aim to provide these children with the best possible training and integration opportunities.
