Early Intervention for Autism

Research shows that Early intervention for Autism has a long term positive effect on the symptoms and in skill developments. Early interventions not only give children the best start possible, but also the best chance of developing to their full potential. The sooner a child gets help, the greater the chance for learning and progress.Keeping this in mind, RMRS opened an Early intervention center for Autism as the first of this kind in 2019 in Thiruvanamalai.

We provide this program for children from ages 3-5. Our E arly intervention program is tailored to each child that allows them to progress at their own pace. Our trained teachers work individually with each child to reach their fullest potential.

Family support plays an important role in this program, having said that- we educate parents and care givers about techniques and strategies that are being used for the child’s development.
