Number of children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) is increasing alarmingly! If the disabled are not trained up to be self-dependent, they turn to burdens on family and society. Early intervention protects children to a great extent from miserable fortunes. We have established a state of the art intervention unit that conducts all kinds of assessment and recommends the protocol children require. We have also set up School of Speech Delay & Attention Deficiency to address those children who look sound but suffer from speech delay. Moreover, we have launched multi-dimensional vocational training programs to make NDD teens skilled and self-dependent. RIAND Bangladesh is a research institute that carries out research on causes, proliferation and updated intervention procedures of NDDs. We are ready to take challenges and shoulder parents’ concerns and pain.
