What does Sunrise Learning offers

Via special education, children with multiple disabilities learn how to live an independent life, something which comes naturally to normal children, has to be taught to children with multiple disabilities.

This is created for each Child where teaching strategies are customised to the child’s need. No two children has the same form of disability thus individualisation is important to achieve learning results.

In India, the time lag between identification and intervention is almost two years – thus children with MDVI lose years of early development, which are foundational to success in school and life.

It aims at helping the mother understand the unique learning styles of the child with autism. This enables the mother to teach the child new skills and help him/her generalize learnt skills in the environment using the most appropriate teaching strategies.

Multiple therapies

The goal of the therapies is to rehabilitate the child thereby maximizing their potential to move closer to their developmental milestone.

Therapies help a child with multiple disability to achieve their goals in visual, cognitive, social/emotional, communicative and physical development.

The team assesses each child and develops goals for them in each area.

As Child with special needs requires a multidisciplinary team to optimise a child’s development.

There are few employment opportunities for people with disabilities and parents struggle with how to keep there child occupied throughout the days, weeks and months.

If the right amount of support is provided, irrespective of the nature of the employment, most people with autism would be successful active members in their work place.

This program of Sunrise Learning caters to those adults who may seek work in the open employment, but, may need ‘on the job’ training to help them prepare for the same.

Parents face a lot of emotional stress, frustration and fatigue when they have a child with special needs.

They also do not know how to help their child in their development. They cannot manage their behavior and do not have the necessary skills to teach them basic things at home.

Sunrise Learning provide Social & emotional support. counselling services, facilitating linkage to governmental schemes, training on how to take care of your Child, support getting disability certificates and much more.

We also advocate the needs of children with special needs to healthcare providers and run awareness program in school, colleges, Public places and corporates – providing a glimpse of the life lived by children with multiple disabilities.

 

At Sunrise Learning, we celebrate the Special Days dedicated to our cause – inviting all stakeholders to participate and celebrate the unique joy that each child with Sunrise team brings to the world.

FAQ about Autism

Most frequent questions and answers

Autism, often known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a complex condition that affects both behaviour and communication. It may feature a variety of signs and abilities. ASD might be a very minor issue or a handicap requiring full-time care in a specialised setting.

Autism sufferers experience communication issues. They struggle to comprehend the thoughts and emotions of others. They find it difficult to express themselves as a result, whether through gestures, facial expressions, touch, or speech.

Common Signs of autism in children are:-

  • not answering when called by name.
    not making eye contact.
  • unwilling to smile when you do.
  • being really offended if they don’t enjoy a particular taste, smell, or sound.
  • Such actions as flapping their hands, flicking their fingers, or rocking their bodies are repeated.
  • not conversing as much as other kids.

With the right educational and behavioural strategies, mild autism can be reversed. A person with autism has a developmental condition that impacts how they interact with others, how they relate to them, and how they perceive their environment. Autism is a lifelong disability.

A neurological and developmental condition known as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has an impact on how people connect with others, communicate, learn, and conduct. Autism is classified as a “developmental condition” since symptoms often occur in the first two years of life, even though it can be diagnosed at any age.

A sensitive and skilled doctor or clinician must carefully examine the patientersson, inquire about the his/her development from the family, and then objectively apply established diagnostic criteria to make the diagnosis of autism. Medical or genetic testing to identify autism do not exist.

Applied Behavior Analysis, Parent-Child Interaction, Relationship Development Intervention, Play Therapy, and others are some of the therapies available for autism at home. With the help of these strategies, parents may encourage positive behaviours, foster social contact, and impart practical life skills to their kids.
