We make a full circle commitment to children and adults with neurodevelopment or intellectual disability.
From child to adult, through every stage of care-
We are here to stay.
Our circles of care
Under our circles of care, our vision is to provide DEEP, HOLISTIC and LONG-TERM inputs, engagements and resources to individuals with Neuro Developmental Disabilities (NDD) and their families. Our focal areas for the delivery of this vision, are in four broad themes.
- Functional academics
- Cognitive development
- Physical & Mental well-being
- Self-care & socialization
- Functional life-skills/
- Community engagement
- Meaningful partnerships
- Co-creating solutions
These pillars of care thread our work together, which we deliver via five entities, each addressing a different phase in the life of an individual with Neuro-Developmental Disabilities (NDD).
At FAME INDIA, we work via five entities that directly serve children and adults with disabilities. In each of these institutions, we approach our efforts with the conviction that caring for the disabled should be a long-term commitment, not merely for family and caregivers, but also for organisations that partner with the community.
The people that we work with at FAME INDIA, have moderate to severe NDD. This means that they as well as their caregivers will need to prepare not only for the typical growing years, but for the several decades that come after.
It is in these years that the most significant life changes occur: the departure of siblings, the ageing of parents, and their own physical decline.
It is a lifetime of adaptation and learning both for the person with disability as well as for the caregiver/s. And at FAME INDIA, we aim to be a resource that both of them can draw learning, support and reassurance from, during that journey.
We call this our FULL-CIRCLE approach
Early intervention is critical to achieve best results. Our program run for children ages 2 to 18 years.
