As a veteran on the field herself, Dr. Deepika expressed her opinions on the benefits of early intervention.

Dr. Ajab Primuswala (Behavioural Therapist) talks about how important it is that parents check their behaviour with children. As a veteran in practice, she insists that lack of awareness is the main problem faced by parents of children with disability and that parents should take steps to educate themselves.
