Challenge

Currently, non-availability of quality OT sessions are affecting the skill development of autistics which is necessary to be functional in social settings and work setting. Though we are providing OT sessions with some basic equipment but It is very important that young adults at Ananda get interventions from a well-equipped therapy unit to reduce their difficulties and perform better.

Solution

Regular occupational therapy will help to improve the ability of persons with autism to process and filter sensory information. This will reduce the sensory overload and help them calm down and focus better. This will ultimately result in the improvement in all skill areas like cognitive, fine motor, gross-motor, daily living skills, communication, social interaction etc.thereby increasing their self-esteem, self-confidence and independence.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower persons with autism for independent living and work in the vocational setting and open employment. It will give respite to their families thereby improving their quality of life and sensitizing the wider community. So the impact will be on three-level, individual, family and community. The project will thus touch many more lives and impact a far larger number of people through a cascading effect.
