Thanks @rpadp. I think we have problem in finding school in North/Dum Dum area for kids with Autism.Many thanks for your input. Do you /anyone have any feedback on Udbhaas (special school run by Dr Nandita Chatterjee).
You are welcome @SouravDalal. It's because we have a habit of oiling the well-oiled machine and ignoring the rest. I don't have direct experience of Udbhaas, though I consulted Dr Nandita Chatterjee on few occasions. What I know that it's good for below moderate range but St. Mary's and Aditya Academy Junior provides better focus for kids in the mild-to-moderate range.
@kolcb i need some advice for my 4.5 yr old son.how i can contact you?
You can contact Nilanjana Rambothu of Sunshine Autism Care...She not only owns this school but also is a very empathetic parent of a special child who is now in his teens. I've also heard well about North Point and New Town School.
@KolCB Dr.sanjukta de(peerless hospital) prescribed my daughter sizodon 0.25ml/5 drops and trenap nocturna syrup(melatonin) 5ml...does these drugs have major side effects? my daughter can't take changes and becomes extremely irritated,aggressive...
@Priyanka87 sizodon is an antipsychotic medicine - however it is also prescribed in some cases of autism to control irritation and agressiveness , has severe side effects if it is used for long term. It is just giving paracetamol when you have a fever to bring down the fever and does not solve the root cause. The other medicine you mentioned is to maintain a good sleep cycle which is very important for autistic child to control their behaviour ,not aware of any side effects of this medicine
