It is perhaps one of the very crucial moments that the parents of a child diagnosed with Autism may go through. It is definitely not easy, but that should not stop you from embracing your parenthood in the best way possible to support your child as much as you want.
The following tips are given so that you, as a parent, can keep up with the changing times;
Though it is never easy, understand that you are going to begin a race that never stops. While it is important that you keep running, make sure that you take necessary breaks to take care of yourself. You will be spending a lot of time in therapy rooms and hence, to ensure that you are engaged, and not bogged down with unhealthy thoughts; read books, get to a gym and do what makes you comfortable.
Well, it happens; even when you do not need advices on stuff when it comes to taking care of your autistic child, people come and go advising you a lot. You may not be able to get away from all of it, ensure that you do not take them all to your heart. And, sarcasm is one of the best ways to cope up with these.
Understand that Autism is extremely expensive. Sometimes you may not have all the money to do everything that you want to do for your child. However, when the child’s uncle asks what kind of gift the child needs for the birthday, ask to gift the child a therapy session. As the people who care for you and your child, they will be better off gifting a therapy session and knowing that the gift actually helps the child, and not gathering dust at the attic.
While trying to make both ends meet and care for your child, parents may not be living the life they deserve. Do not do that; enjoy the life with your child. Take your children out everywhere. Let them also see the world and life as it is.
While Autism can be challenging, it should not steal you off the life that you and your children deserve; enjoy the beautiful life you, as parents, have with your child.Read More
Prayatna clinic is class apart in terms of the child oriented therapies accorded over here. Each therapist takes personal care of the needs of the children and offer palliative cure that starts showing results within few days. I have not come across such clinics across India. The infrastructural support and resource base particularly the brain gym etc. are world class. Children also enjoy learning therapies over here due to the motivating atmosphere. Rehabilitation process is faster. Prayatna is really doing a stellar job.
I have never had such a pleasant therapeutic experience as I have enjoyed in Praytana clinic. The ambience does not have that medical feeling to it. Therapists are always willing to walk the extra mile to make the process easier. The simple manner in which the therapies are offered is really hard to believe without experiencing at a personal level. They also prescribe therapies to be practised at home so that idleness does not interfere with the effect. Keep up the good job.
It was not long since I started seeing a positive change sweeping the life of my only child who required sensory integration therapy. At first, I was hesitating to go to Praytana and thought it to be like any other clinic with lofty claims but with no substance. But, a rude but pleasant shock awaited me as I could see the therapies work wonder for my child. He was no longer the same old kid seeking vents to express his pent-up emotions. Hats off to Prayatna.

My son has been suffering from autistic syndrome and was not able to interact intuitively with his peers. The rehabilitative care offered at Prayatna was life-changing experience for me. Changes in the behavioural patterns of my son started becoming evident. His actions are now more agile and he no longer starts feeling uneasy in the company of others. Prayatna has pulled off the trick for my son. I would candidly recommend the clinic to all parents who want their children to take control of their lives.
