Centre for Assessment and Therapy (OPD Unit)

The objective of the ‘Centre for Assessment and Therapy’ (popularly known as OPD unit) is to address the problems of the children through appropriate intervention programs. This is the entry point for the children with special needs. The focus is to assess the child and diagnose the disability & its severity.
