The Foundation for Spastic and Mentally Handicapped Persons (FSMHP) ® was set up as a Non-Profit Charitable Trust in April 1994 to help children with brain damage related disabilities like Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation (MR), Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), to lead a better quality of life, and to help them return to their rightful place in society and gainful employment wherever possible.
We help and guide parents/guardians of children with CP, MR or Autism regarding diagnosis and evaluation of brain-related disabilities, home management, and selection of special schools
Based on our work, the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Govt. of India recognized this project since March 2000 for Education and Training of severely multiple handicap children.
For augmenting our services to help special need children, UDAAN introduced research oriented and evidence based early medical interventional therapies to enhance the recovery rate of children with brain damage related disabilities, using intensive one-to-one Standard Therapy (need-based Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Special Education, Sensory Integration Therapy), mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT), Unani Neuro-restorative therapy, DAN-Protocol based Biochemical Therapy for Autism along with Injection MB12 and heavy metal chelation in children proven to have heavy metal intoxication.
Our vision is to make the Spirit of Freedom fly like a free bird in spite of the disability trying to drag down the child. This is personified both in the name of our Project: UDAAN for the Disabled, and our logo.
- Provide affordable intensive one-to-one Rehabilitation and Training to children and adults with moderate to severe disabilities, especially those induced due to brain damage.
- Develop and standardize affordable evidence based medical methodologies for reversal of brain damage in disabled children with Cerebral Palsy and Autism.
- Spread awareness about these newly established medical strategies to enhance the quality of life and level of employability of children with Neurodevelopmental disability, beyond what may be achieved by the best standards of recognized Rehabilitation Techniques.
