Attending to the needs of their child is something that parents do with utmost sincerity. Nothing can be more disheartening than to find your child being born with special needs.

Children with special needs are the unfortunate ones who are born with certain disabilities or acquire them later in life. The problems with these children are varied and manifold, making their treatment and care difficult. Hence, they keep getting shunted from pillar to post. Therapeutic options for them are limited in the city as it needs an integrated approach from several departments.

In an effort to strive towards excellence, we at Santosh Hospital have taken a step towards helping these children, which is a felt need of the community.
