Today we are 3 years old. Vidya Sudha has touched the lives of many children directly & indirectly. We are working relentlessly for the betterment of these children, to put a smile on the faces of the children and their families.
Vidya Sudha was conceived with the aim of helping parents of children with special needs, do the best for their child. We believe we have the professional expertise, commitment and infrastructure to help special children, face the challenges of life positively and with confidence.

The strength of nine colleges, about 100 courses, a multi-specialty with 1500 bed hospital, a special team of doctors and healthcare professionals who specialize in the care of children back Vidya Sudha.
 
Family - Centered Intervention Program

Vidya Sudha is a uniquely designed daycare center, where parents are an integral part of the plan and care process. This
Family-Centred Intervention Programme requires that one of the parents (usually the mother) participate in all the sessions along with the child. Parents can continue to mentor their child at home, with the learning continuing beyond the campus.

Individualized Educational Program (IEP)

Vidya Sudha believes that each child has a different aptitude, potential and need. Therefore, we create an
Individualized Educational Programme (IEP) for each child. Our low student teacher ratio fosters a unique environment where each child can blossom and reach his/her full potential.
