Our team understand the child and evaluates child development and examines where the challenges lie. Our team then plan an individualized treatment option such as, if the need arises, we work with an occupational therapist who can help the child acquire skills which are necessary to perform activities or occupation of daily life.

At Yashoda hospital, we believe in coordinated care, where we closely with the child's primary care physician, the family, and, whenever appropriate, school and community health resources. We also provide support at the school level, where we interact with the child's teachers and staff for concessions and considerations.

In every case, our aim is to help the child in the process of mental, physical, and social development from infancy to young adulthood and attain his or her full potential.
