Happy, Independent & Confident Maheeda
10 year old Madeeha was a hyperactive child with limited social skills. Fearful and shy, she was hesitant to approach other people. Because of her hyperactive nature, she found it difficult to sit in one place, and wasn't toilet trained either.
Thanks to the Special teachers at AMC, Madeeha was toilet trained, given speech therapy, and taught to take care of her body. Her parents were given guidance and counseling by a psychiatrist as well, which helped them work with her better while at home. Working and sharing classroom space with 15 other children began to improve her social skills.
After going through four years of Life Skill Development at AMC special school, Madeeha can now speak in broken sentences. She is now toilet trained and has learned to take care of herself. Her interaction with other children has greatly improved as well.
