Early Detection in Newborns

The beginnings to a brighter future!

With every baby that comes into the world, hope is born and reborn.We believe that new beginnings should not be hindered by signs of disability. Early detection of disability can change the life of the newborn and the family.

As pioneers in this field, our team is trained to carry out screening of premature newborns and babies born with complications. The screening is done at Government Hospitals and Public Health Centres and the child’s need is assessed using normative and criterion reference tools. We then recommend the best path of rehabilitation for each child, counsel the families, and provide information on Government schemes applicable to the child.
