We provide intensive early intervention to children with Autism and related Communication Disorders (such as Specific Language Impairment, Developmental Verbal Dyspraxia). We follow the Communication DEALL program. We have a clear focus on working to help the child join regular school and are committed to achieving measureable gains in specified time intervals.
Children with greater difficulties (for whom mainstream school may be difficult) are helped through our Functional skills program where we work on building basic communication, independent feeding, toileting and developing basic play skills.
We offer both group and individual intervention programs based on the needs of the child and family.Demonstration therapy, parent training and home based program with regular follow up forms the basis of our intervention for out of town clients.
Our top priority is to create a positive, harmonious environment in which children, families and professionals working with the children can thrive. We believe in transparency in our work. Parents are encouraged to participate with us at every step. Parent empowerment is a major thrust area and parent training and demonstration therapy are built into our schedule.We work closely with parents regarding the many challenges they face and help them channel skills learnt in the classroom into daily life.
Our teams are accountable to ensure that we meet our goal of measureable gains in specified timeframes. Witnessing the changes in the children keeps them internally motivated as well. Our professionals have unanimously told us that their biggest learning at Com DEALL has been the interdiscplinary work and holistic approach to child development.

Documentation and reporting
Children in the program are assessed every six months.These assessments form the basis for developing intervention goals. We thus take care that each child's goals are specific to his/her needs and can be addressed even when working with children in groups. Periodic assessments ensure that goals stay dynamic and evolve as the child develops. Written reports on goals and progress are shared with the family every month.The team meets on the last Saturday of every month to discuss each child at length.
Indeed, we take pride in staying abreast of the latest developments in the field and are proud to offer a program in line with best practices across the world. We strive to ensure that we remain the best early intervention service for Autism in Mumbai.
