    Welcoming place that engages each child.

    Our staff is specialized in the areas of speech and language, play, social and emotional development, cognition, and fine and gross motor skills.

    We believe:

    • families are the most important people in a child’s life and that we are most effective when we work in partnership with the family;
    • the development of young children is enhanced by providing services as early as possible so as to provide them with bright future full of hopes and dreams for every child.
    • Shashwat Child Development Centre was established in October 2012 in Pune with the intention of overall development of children with special needs. Understanding their concerns and solving their problems is the major role of this centre. 
    •  The visionary behind establishing this centre  is Dr  Meenakshi Kamble an Occupational Therapist by profession . She has completed her Masters in Occupational Therapy in 2011 and since then she is being working in habilitation of special children.
    • While running this centre she also come across that along with Occupational Therapy, the need of involving other therapies such as Speech therapy, Behavior therapy,  and Special education. And this led to the foundation of multi-therapy centre called as Shashwat Child Development Centre which involve multiple therapies under one roof. From 2011 to  2017,  Shashwat  has assessed over more than 1000 children with disabilities and 550 children without  major disabilities in the age group of 2.5 – 12years. Their caregivers were counselled and explained about their  role and involvement in the therapy process .
    • Due to this overall stress of the parents with special needs has thus reduced. Shashwat child development centre has now  initiated an activity club for children who are school dropouts or are planning for schooling but not getting admissions. 
    • Her motto is to facilitate integrated schooling and learning of children with special needs.
