About

I am a speech Language Therapist by profession and the Founder of Dimensions Centre for Child Development that serves children with special needs under various capacities.

 

I started with a vision to provide affordable and quality interventions  for children. My experience working among children in clinical settings and research institutes helped me provide cutting edge services to the families that sought my help.

 

As the number of families depending on my services increased I recruited professionals with similar interests as mine and currently, we are a team of eight therapists.

 

In the recent years I have started training programs for other fellow professionals to improve the quality of services provided for disabled children in India. My master’s degree in speech and hearing, and others certifications from developed countries has helped on this venture and I have been privileged to have trained over 450 professionals through my online courses in the last year.

 

 

If chosen for the prestigious Star India Awards, I will be able to reach out to families and professionals across the country.

Business Details

 

Dimensions Centre for Child Development offers evidence-based scientific methods in treating disabled children, which was started in 2012 as a private practice under my professional licence.

 

It started with a vision to provide best services under speech therapy and currently offers speech therapy, occupational therapy, social skills programs, oral sensory motor intervention, feeding therapy, fluency therapy, aural rehabilitation. Our services are delivered in-person, online and hybrid for children across the country and Indian families across the world.

 

Our centre is located in Bengaluru; registered as a sole proprietorship under the Government of Karnataka and headed by me, the applicant. Our core values are to offer support to families of children with special educational needs by involving parents as partners in interventions and rendering transparency.

 

In the last two years we have been actively involved in training parents and professionals working among children with special needs, in order to empower them to offer best practices. We aim to transform the quality of services provided in our country to international standards through these programs.

 

Revenue generation is through fees collected for the services. We desire to make therapies available for children from all socio-economic backgrounds, and offer significant concession to families, who are unable to afford to pay the full fees.
