Playstreet

Playstreet provides educational services to help the child with special needs become independent and live up to his or her potential. We provide an integrated schooling program where our team of experts work together to evolve a holistic program for each child. We also provide speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, special education, oral placement therapy, sensory integration and group play therapy. PlayStreet is a charitable trust.

School

The school program is designed to provide the child with all the intervention required to fulfill his or her potential. It consists of three programs. NAUTI - Early interaction and communication, CATERPILLAR - Play and Early Skills Development and BUTTERFLY - School readiness program to move the child to regular school. All the required intervention such as Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy etc. are provided as part of the program.

Speech and Laguage Therapy

Speech and Language therapy for children with special needs concentrates on improving the cognitive aspects of communication, aspects of speech production ( phonation, articulation, fluency, resonance and voice) and aspects of language ( phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics aspects of communication) including comprehension and expression

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people to organize, manage, and perform their daily life occupations and activities. It supports a child's participation in activities of daily living, education, work, play, leisure, and social interactions.

Special Education

Helps children having diffilculties with reading and writing, understanding things, concentration etc. This requires extra support and specific environment to facilitate their cognitive development and learning process.

Play and Social Skills

Young children spend most of their free time playing. In their free time they play with the people and objects around them. Play is an important part of every child's development. It is a vehicle through which children explore and learn about their environment. Social skill is an area of need for most children with special needs. Even some of the high functioning children with special needs stumble when it comes to socializing with his/her peers. This program works on the play and social skills of the children

Trainings

Parent Empowerment is something we firmly believe in and advocate to help parents become better facilitators at home and the biggest agents of change in the child's life. Outside of Playstreet, the parents are the ones spending most time with our kids. As a consequence, the child learns the most when the parent is trained to teach the child. Playstreet organizes regular trainings for parents which becomes the heart of the program.

Rain, come again!

With the best of intentions, we are on our way to getting our children integrated into the world. But let us not forget they are children and have to enjoy the simple things. Let us also enjoy along with them - inspired by a child

Mother to a 4 year old with CAS

"I would like to thank the team of Playstreet for the great work they have done with my daughter over the past two years. She was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech 2 years ago and I'm very excited about her progress. She only had few single words when she started therapy and now she talks in sentences. My daughter also enjoys the sessions and looks forward to seeing her therapist every week. We highly recommend Playstreet for their professionalism, positive reinforcement and commitment to the child's success."

Father to a 5 year old with GDD

"As we moved our son from Therapy classes to the NAUTI Program, it was like a game changer for him. We are happy to note that the program has helped him to achieve most of his goals, like improved sitting tolerance, receptive skills and gross and fine motor skills. The program helped us to understand the importance of continuous training for the kid and also empowered us (Hanen) for the same. He started enjoying more games in a meaningful way with lot of interactions. He also started pointing for his requirements when shown with choice or even when he wants something. He is also now showing interest in lot of new things like walking on the staircase."

Mother of 14 year old with autism

"My son had severe oro motor issues. He did not have mouth closure, could not blow or chew and also had drooling problems. Today after about 6 months of intense, very disciplined, mile stone based Oral Placement Therapy, he has mouth closure, has the ability to blow bubbles, whistle and importantly his drooling has substantially reduced. He is also beginning to show signs of chewing his food. We are very excited about this progress and are confident of even better results in the future. We would gladly recommend PlayStreet to any child with oro motor issues."
