Effective use of internet & computer for Academic Research

post-edit 0 comments

Someone who is a coach, role model and friend,
Never tells you how or what
Who offers new perspectives
But helps you find the answers within yourself
Who nurtures his people to be better than himself 
Someone who shows you all the moves
And then applauds from the stands, 

as you break the stereotype,

Lets nurture the leaders within us!
Happy teachers day!

Siddha Medicine therapy for Autism at Chennai

post-edit 0 comments
Swabhimaan is a Trust, lead by Dr.Partheeban a Siddha Medical Graduate working for the welfare of people with autism in India. It is located by the second largest coastline in the world, at the suburbs of Chennai. The Trust has blossomed out of a three-year-old dream of Indian medical doctors and parents of children with autism.

The trust was principally started as a Indian medical research center, where yoga, siddha medicines, ayurvedic massages and naturopathy treatments are customized according to the needs of children with autism and found that children were happier and far more co operative. Autism, is a spectrum disorder where no two children are alike. It is a multifaceted disorder, where the various problems of the child cannot be addressed by a single professional. This alone was not enough as we could not cater to their multiple needs. Therefore the trust expanded the center.
