Happy Home Ananda

In the last quarter, our residents at Ananda have shown a lot of progress in the process of their learning. Some high support need residents were having eating challenges. Our educators worked on it and through right interventions, they are now sitting on the dining table with fellow residents and educators and eating independently. Another resident who used to have occasional toilet accidents are now able to regulate him.

All residents have also learnt to follow their schedules and happily working in the vocational training unit which is inside the campus.

We are glad to share that we have a Japanese volunteer who is helping adults with the art classes. Now our adults are able to express themselves through art…

Assisted independent living at Ananda

Over a period of a year, we have provided 100 nights of respite for a couple of adults.  Ananda has been set up like a home away from home where residents come for both short stay or a longer one. The main focus is to give them a homely feel yet providing the structure and predictability that these youngsters benefit from.Lot of visual supports are used to help the residents in doing things independently.  Various activities are planned and executed keeping these things in mind. Some of the activities that are done doing their stay are gardening, cooking, shopping, doing laundry, playing at outdoor, watching movies, going for a walk in the community etc.

In addition to this, we focused on intensifying the training of our team who are working and will be working directly with the residents. Under the various aspects of home management along with time training, behavioural management is being addressed. The main focus of the training is to create a bonding between the residents and those who are directly working with the residents. The training also emphasizes sensitizing to the needs of the young person with autism. It also includes but not limited to planning activities for the residents, helping the residents with activities of daily living skills etc
