The services, training and models of retaliations are need based and are well accepted by the Parents, Community, Professionals, Institutions, and Government by way of appreciation, association, supports, recognition, and need based approvals.
Cheyutha works with the sole aim of empowering these children both socially and economically so that they will be part of the mainstream with better sustainability and quality of life (QOL).
With the experience and expertise gained while catering the needs of the targeted groups, Cheyutha has framed matching Future Vision to reach such children who are not yet reached both quantitatively and qualitatively.
It is the proud privilege of the parents of daughter having special needs to be known with connectivity to the World as Founders of ‘TSS Cheyutha Society’. Miss. ‘Mahati’ is the daughter of Dr. T. Krishna Kumari and Shri. T.S.R.A. Sharma.
As a first issue, Mahati came to this world like any normal child and whole family enjoyed the moment with celebrations. She was absolutely normal with all the developmental milestones till the age of 7 years which includes education in normal school. Later attacked by Meningitis, she remained in coma for 2 months.
The positive attitude of her parents brought change within 3 years. Now she (32 years old) is moving and able to attend some of her daily activities. Her mother, being a Doctor is fully dedicated for the cause of disability with innovation and creativity. Mahati is categorized under ‘Mental Retardation’.
