Like any other parent, Mrs. Meenakshi dreamt of leading a happy and normal life. That's when her world came crushing down. Her beloved son Tanay was diagnosed with autism at the tender age of 9. The little boy had convulsions from the time he was born and had to live on anti epileptic medications too.
Because of this, Tanay, missed all the crucial development milestones. Despite giving all sorts of medication, the boy showed no signs of improvement. Instead, the medications numbed his mind further. Mrs. Meenakshi enrolled him in a special school thinking his needs and behavior would be understood. But alas, the special school, too, failed in providing some respite to her.
Consultations with medical professionals, she has now become an expert when it comes to dealing with autistic kids. She understands their world, needs and thoughts better than ever before.
The sole mission to provide unflinching care, support and guidance to autistic kids and their families. She did not want any other kid to go through the same experience as Tanay did.
In Tanay's abilities pursued Mrs. Meenakshi to consider withdrawing him from school. She decided to take the matter in her own hands and deal with the problems hands-on! She sacrificed her career to look after her son.
It must be for a parent to deal with a child having autism. She turned into an extraordinary visionary after her own experience and decided to start a School meant exclusively for autistic kids.
