As the prevalence rates for autism is increasing worldwide and India not an exception (the current estimates indicating 1 in 54 children) there is a great need for certified and trained therapists to provide services for these children.
There is a lack of professionally run facilities in the Krishnagiri District of Tamil Nadu. Many parents of children with autism receive little to no support or are unable to see progress with their existing special schools/ therapy centers. In 2017 as part of the Special-Ed department at Asian Christian High School the Asian Christian Academy found it necessary to engage in this societal need and began to expand plans to cater to the requirements of these families.
The Ray of Hope center for Autism was opened in February 2019 under the leadership of Rachel George. Ray of Hope center for Autism is a Non-profit Organization located in the plush campus of Asian Christian Academy, Hosur, Tamil Nadu. She is the Board Certified Behavioural Analyst (BCBA) from Texas, USA with a Masters in Special Education in Autism in order to provide individualised early intervention services for children with Autism.
What we hope to achieve?
With well-trained and closely supervised staff and training given to parents, we strive to provide services of the highest quality with individual attention to each child. We focus on the skills they need to achieve and also work on the barriers that interfere with their learning to help these children achieve their maximum potential. The Ray of Hope center for Autism values the progress of every child that we serve.
