With my first blog I would like to share how Ananya Learning Centre came into being.
Varun, my first born in 1988 is a child with autism. He lead us parents to the search for wholesome development and those gears that would help him live his life to the optimum potential. After extensive search and research, we chose to move to U.K. While journeying with Varun, I did Masters in English and Psychology. Over the years, I found the continuous need to attend workshops and training programs. I wanted to keep abreast with the new methods and teaching techniques and also to be able to guide him to cope with the challenges he could face while growing up. A few years later, we decided to move back India. My mind was not still. Development for a child with learning difficulties is multifaceted. It involves various therapies happening simultaneously with a synchronizing structure. I did not want to live just with the satisfaction that my child is blossoming and transforming. I wanted to share my experience and reach out to help other children who were deprived of quality therapy. Then sprung Ananya in 2008. A centre matching international standards, with all therapies under one roof. Varun can read and write over 30 languages and is a talented Hindustani Classical singer who received Pandit Jasraj Award for the Upcoming Talent in Hindustani Vocal in 2015.
Varun is ‘the’ special child, the torch bearer, who takes all the credit for 10,000 happy families till date. Varun could reach this stage only because of the interventions he received at a very early age. After seeing Varun go from strength to strength over the last 16 years as a parent and a therapist I strongly believed that Early Diagnosis and Intervention is the key to a child’s success. At Ananya we highly recommend, our flagship program, Early Intervention and School Readiness.
Our Flagship Program for Early Intervention: Research is increasingly proving that children with developmental delays will benefit from the earliest interventions possible. Research studies are also urging families not to use the “wait and see” method for early intervention as it was “likely to have significant and negative consequences.” Early interventions can impact multiple areas of a child’s life including—but not limited to—their academic success, communication skills, and may alleviate fiscal responsibility for continuing therapies. Some studies even have shown that early intervention can improve a child’s IQ by approximately 18 points.
