View of a Mom of a Son with Autism

As per my view it was tough but real conversation behind the brave face of parenting with the master Sanjay. It was challenging for me to choose the correct words for describing the quality of my child. Sometimes I with my family faced problem to interact with other people in society. Meanwhile with the help of social workers I reached Manovikas School, there he got his training in ADL and behavior modification and Now Sanjay is getting social. I remember those years when I couldn't go for grocery shopping because it’s seems little difficult. I can’t remember the last time I said yes to an invitation for a social outing because my child doesn’t interact much with others but now it’s been easy for me to deal with the issues and my son has become more interactive with other peers and relatives.

Teacher’s Perspective

Sanjay is a nine years young boy. He got admission in Aarambh Child Care Centre. He is lovely boy. He is involving in activities like dance, painting, drawing, games, learning from moral stories and also shares his food with other students in the classroom. He has become more interactive, developed his listening skills and able to react the poem which brings smile on his and his mothers face.

Manovikas Institute for Higher Education help in Problem behaviour of Autistic Student


Manovikas Institute for Higher Education (MIHE) work on the problem behaviour. We have one student his name is Manav. Manav is perusing his IT (Domestic data entry) course from MIHE. When he came to Manovikas he had many behaviour problems because of the several reasons he couldn’t come regularly in MIHE. At that time his behaviours increase day by day. His parent’s very concern about him. After one year he came regularly in Manovikas. He didn’t identify difference between girls’ washroom and boys’ washroom. His repetitive behaviour also create problem during his study but now he is doing well in IT and his behaviour are improving.


Parents Perspective

My son Manav was born on 2nd October 1997. Manav is a twin baby in which Manav is the first twin and second twin was expired after 2 days of birth. In his childhood Manav suffered from jaundice and pneumonia. Manav is a very loveable child of the family.  We never treated him as a different child. People say many things about Manav and we ignored them. He done his studies till 10th class but after 10th we were very concern about his future. Then we came to Manovikas and they told us about IT course and ensure us for his job. We feel very relaxed and Manovikas staff not only trained him in IT they also work hard on his behaviour.

Opportunities for the bright future


Manovikas not only enhance Manav’s academic skill but we also give him opportunities to involve and enjoy co-curricular activities. Manovikas trained him for the interview, internship and job. Manav is very fond of music so we gave him to music classes and it is very impactful for Manav because of music his hyperactivity decrease. In Manovikas Manav interacted with other people (Classmate, Teachers etc). Manav also do the internship outside the Manovikas successfully.

अमन के परिवार में इसकी माँ और एक बडा भाई है जिसको अमन की ही तरह आटिस्म है। अमन को तो नशीले पदार्थों के सेवन का लत भी लग गया था। माँ अपने दो-दो विशेष बेटे को एक साथ रखने में आस्मर्थता महसूस करने लगी थी और मनोविकास स्वतंत्र जीवनकला केन्द्र के छात्रावास में अमन का दाखिला करवा दिया। 
अमन धीरे-धीरे प्रशिक्षण के बाद हर क्रियाकलापों पर प्रतिक्रिया करने लगा और नशीले पदार्थ का सेवन भी करना छोड दिया है । अब अमन स्वयं के दैनिक कार्यों में निपुणता हाशिल कर लिया है। 
छात्रावास में सभी के साथ मिल कर रहना उसको पसंद है। अमन की माँ जब उसे छुट्टियों में घर ले जाती है तो अमन घर पर भी आटिस्म जैसे व्यवहार करना कम कर दिया है। 



सदा मुस्कुराता हुआा आदिल, जो हमेंशा एक ही तरह के कामों में उलझा रहना पसंद करता है। आदिल के परिवार में उसका बड़ा भाई है और इनका देख-रेख मनोविकास स्वतंत्र जीवनकला केन्द्र के छात्रावास में होता है। प्रशिक्षण के बाद अब आदिल स्वयं को काटना, यौन सम्बन्धी समस्या व्यवहार, आदि से निजात पाकर कॉपी में लिखते रहना, दोस्तों से बातें करना, अपनी चीजांे को संभालकर रखना जैसे क्रियाकलापों में व्यस्त रहता है। ऑटिस्म अब आदिल को कम परेशान करता है क्योंकि अब वह स्पष्ट और स्थिर व्यवहार करना पसंद करने लगा है।
