“Medhosampathhi” is a project of “Medha parents association for intellectually challenged”. School- Day care was started in the year 2008 to look after the requirements of children with Special needs.
Main aim of “Medhosampathhi” is to rehabilitate the mentally retarded children. Help them lead a respectable life in the society and make them independent while Performing daily activities. An immense quantity of endurance and tolerance is required to supervise and handle such children. Parents are not able to give time and are in a state of dilemma as they are busy in the present pace of the world. “Medhosamapathhi” is running a “Day care school” to not only engage them but also teach them with patience and love.
Some of these MENTALLY CHALLENGED CHILDREN cannot complete the easiest of tasks that we all seem to take for granted. Easy things like walking straight, eating or going to toilet need training. These specially gifted children need little More Love and Affection. They require a perfect atmosphere to help in the growth.
Medhosampathhi provides special teachers to take care of physiotherapy, speech therapy, special education, special games to learn daily scores and provides a very loving atmosphere for their emotional needs.
It all started with the initiative of few responsible mothers who have mentally challenged children. The existing schools could not cater to the needs of Intellectually Challenged children. The services to train an Intellectually Challenged child are very expensive and not within the reach of a common man. Motivated with all these and also with the personal experience of few members, a group of few mothers under the leadership of Y. Meena who is qualified with BSC, BEd. and post-graduation diploma on special education for mentally challenged children, have planned to establish a charitable, non-profit & non-commercial organization for the welfare & integration of Intellectually Challenged by contributing some of their savings and effort. They are supported by their family members and friends.
As a mother of a cri-du-chat syndrome, the experiences run into volumes .Every experience was taken as learning about the specially gifted children. The agony I faced when I first realized about the condition of the child where no doctor, no medicines, and no living being could do anything to alter it, cannot be expressed.
The challenge was thrown to me by the god. The delicate systems, which caused trouble with slightest discomfort, needed round the clock services. Visits to therapists, specialists and regular fight with the infections occupied most of the time.
After visiting many schools and therapy centers decided to start on my own. As I was qualified with BSC, BEd, PGPd in special education grouped few mothers and parents with similar children and registered Medha parents association for intellectually challenged in 2008. Since then slowly developed day care center with all facilities like Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, special education tool kits and school has grown leaps and bounds and every parent has expressed their appreciation and gratitude.

Medhosamapathhi strives to help child and also guide parents in this process.
