I Support Foundation is an organization with an idea to educate and develop underprivileged Autistic children, also running a 45 kids’ (currently) strong school in Lucknow that manages their academics and supports them in the best possible way.

Chief among these are increased awareness of autism, better understanding of the breadth of the autism spectrum, and advocacy to increase research and access to care and support.

We at ISF have made it a point to fight these challenges our own way, as much as we can. Our major concerns and points of planning being the follows:

  • ISF Regional Centres : Our first and foremost goal is to set up regional centres in villages and areas with considerably a stronger need for them, also keeping in mind the population and situation of PwDs in the same. These centres will offer Skill Development Programs for the children with disabilities and their mothers, assuring them self-sufficiency, better mental health care and development and also employment for the mothers at the centres itself. ISF also plans to provide Physiotherapists and Special Educators for PwDs in the rural areas.
  • Working on the Individual Education Plan for the children with disabilities. The teachers are further made to follow the plan and extensively work on the individual growth and development of each child.

 

  • Counseling and Support Group for Families. A lot of times, the families are just a counseling session away from coming on the right track in terms of their child’s mental growth and a little bit of venting out, sharing and the right guidance is all that they need. 

 

  • Sensitization Talks and Awareness Programs to be carried out in the Rural Areas. These talks are spread out around across the causes of Autism, the social evils, the isolation tagged along with it, such as Bullying, Labeling, Early Marriage, Unplanned Pregnancy, Empowerment of PwDS, etc.
