12 Million children in India live with special needs

Only 1 % of children with special needs  have access to  school
One third of most disabilities are preventable. Malnutrition is the cause for most cases of special needs
33% of parents do not allow their children with special needs to interact with other children for fear of being teased, accidents and aggressive behaviour

In India 80% of children with special needs will not survive past of the age of forty.
FAME India, school for children with special needs aims to improve the access to schools for all such children regardless of their background. With the curriculum aimed at teaching each child to live a life of dignity we believe that in our small little way we are contributing to bettering all the other stats.

The heart and soul of FAME

We have around 150 students between 0 and 18 years of age who have 
neuro developmental disabilities

Our Individualised Education Programme

Every child at FAME goes through a detailed assessment in the areas of speech, PT, Medico social, OT, and psychiatry and an individualised education programme is then designed for them in the following three areas

Our meticulously designed educational programs help each child learn and develop based on their age , physical and mental progress

Our professional physiotherapists make sure the child gets the motor exercise they need to maintain and develop their abilities and prevent deformation

We do understand how parents feel, knowing that the child has a mental challenge and having to care for them every day
