The foundation is aimed towards working with the physically and the mentally challenged individuals who may be under the umbrella of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Learning Disability, Dyslexia, mental retardation, Down’s Syndrome, Slow learners etc
Sinchana Foundation was formulated with a vision to create opportunities for individuals with special needs, to provide them a platform to tap their innate potentials.
We have more than a dozen children currently and conduct one-on-one, therapy classes. We have recently started occupational therapy sessions for those children with the need.
We are committed to work with these children, and provide them ample support using the latest technology and various updated educational inputs. We hope to make a difference, and bring them into mainstream, though in a small way, in the child’s life.
We would like to start a school curriculum (10 am to 3 pm) for these children, especially who would not get admission in any of the other normal schools, using the Montessori methodology. This would be only the third and a one of a kind institute in Bangalore.
