Our son, is autistic and microcephaly, and has joined Khushi in Feb 2009. His sitting tolerance was very less and he was highly restless. Initially, he started with one to one therapy. After some stability at the therapy centre we suggested having him admitted for a three hours school. However, since he was highly restless, he was shifted to one on one pattern again. Ofcourse, this was only after deliberation with us. Adapting the curriculum to my son’s ability and also his mood swings has been the major highlight in last 2 years.
The above brief highlights the following :
. My son is highly challenging and Khushi has a professional approach to take on challenges
. Experimentation on the therapy pattern is very important for my child. This is exactly what is done for him. Sincere effort is put in by all therapists under the director’s guidance.
. Taking parents views is also given importance since shifts for him from one to one, then to school and again to one on one, was done only after consulting us.
. Adjusting the training to suit his behaviour pattern.
My son has improved a lot under the training of various therapists’. His sitting tolerance has improved and also, most importantly, his understanding and awareness. My son is extremely moody and stubborn. Adaptation to his behaviour pattern shows professional approach of the therapist and as parents we are also privy to the guidance provided by center. Assessments are regularly done by the director and guidance is provided to therapist as well as us. Therapists from Khushi are extremely hardworking, patient and understanding. The director is extremely professional and, time to time, has been instructing therapist to adapt according to his improvement swings.
As parents, the amount of confidence shown by Khushi in my son’s ability to do things and also improve has immensely helped us gain confidence. We are also satisfied that he is now in the right hands and our concern about his improvement is now shared by Khushi. My son’s mom accompanies him to the therapy centre and looks forward for being at the centre since she can oversee his progress and most importantly she gets to meet therapist and also talk to them. This has helped her mentally to be away for sometime from her concerns about him and understand his training needs. We understand that there is long way for our child to go but we are now sure that he will improve at Khushi.
We wish the director and all the therapists a happy children’s day and also good luck for their endeavor to ensure that best is given to all the kids at Khushi.My son now 9 yrs old was born a healthy child. But destiny had something else in store for us. He was a normal healthy child at birth. At the age of 5& ½ months he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had to be operated. Within a period of 3 & ½ years, he was operated 3 times, underwent 3 cycles of chemotherapy and then 3-D conformal radiation. Due to the critical treatment protocols, my son developed delayed milestones with regards to language & balance & was also diagnosed with mild ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).
To counter the delays, he had to undergo therapies. But there was no sense of direction. I just went on giving therapy sessions as advised by Dr’s time to time and he used to attend normal school but in, the process we were totally exhausted & drained out. Then one day a parent suggested KHUSHI PEDIATRIC THRAPY CENTER. Ever since he has started his one to one therapy sessions at Khushi, he has improved a LOT. His writing skills have improved remarkably. He is more focused & has learnt to read simple stories and his language & communication has also improved. He can now communicate lot of things and it is a joy seeing him achieving the desired step by step, though it is a long journey ahead.
The positive developments seen in him are due to the sincere efforts taken by the director and her dedicated team of therapists which is truly commendable. We sincerely pray that Khushi keeps on growing & continue to serve as many kids with developmental issues.
I remember the heart shattering moment when my son was diagnosed with autistic traits and ADHD. I remember how I yearned and wanted my son to talk and share his experiences, his feelings – everything with me! My son was not talking or responding to conversations, indifferent to people and situations around, very hyperactive and in his own world. My unsure mind made me feel as if there is no hope ahead. That was 3 years ago….
And here I am today — ” I got 10/10 Mama and Mohit got 9/10.” “What does “TRANSFORMERS” mean?” “I got Geeta chanting competition certificate”.”Why Papa has to go to Singapore?”— happily struggling to keep pace with his queries and experiences. Kudos! Kudos ! Kudos to The Director and Team Khushi to usher in this turn-around for my son. The objective and systematic approach adopted at Khushi Pediatric & Therapy Centre worked wonders to bring about this change. They excel in diagnosing, understanding and providing focused solutions for the problem areas. We thank them from the bottom of our heart in guiding us to this point and the journey continues.
