Ananda is a 8 year old boy who took admission at Dhankhet Manovikas Kendra in 2017. He was diagnosed with hearing impairment. The time when he was admitted to the school he was very shy, fearful and did not show any age appropriate behaviour. With proper intervention through speech and language therapy and special education, now he has improved a lot in academics, as well as in co curricular like drawing, games, dance etc. He has shown a lot of improvements and we hope that she will continue to move forward in the future too.
