OUR JOURNEY

2014

 

Healing Nest started her journey in the year 2014 in a 1 room apartment with a handful of children diagnosed with various neuro-developmental disorders and some were just developmentally delayed. 

We started with one to one intervention and provided Social language therapy, Occupational therapy and Group work to teach social skills. We were able to reach out to nearby neighbors and advertise our work and also slowly making our mark towards the larger society working for mental health.

2015

 

From few handful children we were slowly able to reach out to more parents, schools and other organizations. With open arms and complete acceptance we let all kind of children join us specially those seeking support from us. Our team became bigger from 3 to 6 people.

Our primary goal was to be child centric and accomodate all children and we were successfully doing it.We saw happy satisfied parents as well as confidant professionals.

We celebrated few festivals together and here are some of the glimpses.

With the beginning of 3rd year, we reached out to the neighbouring society and did an awareness rally on Autism Awareness day ie 2nd april. We were able to reach out to 100 people and distributed pamphlet with mental health information. We now had about 15 children and 8 therapists and 2 support staff. We were getting a lot of positive response from parents and also from the schools around. But one thing which came as a surprise was, there were no play school around to cater these children. Thus their school readiness was very poor to go to a bigger private school.Many parents insisted if we could start`a play group which entailed therapeutic intervention and group time with other children.

 

And then we started our "play group program " for age group 2-5 years. We used music,dance movement and other creative ways to work with children.

We did open house training for parents where our team gave them an overview of the new programes in the new space and also provided them with home plans to do at home. More and more parents reached us and we were known around for our work.
