Orchestra is a center that caters to the needs for special children to promote intensive learning to develop skills, and also to stimulate their potential with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Our goal is to bring out the potentials in terms of communication, behaviour, self dependency and academic learning in their day to day life. We believe that through effective intervention, an individual with special needs would be able to lead his/her life independently. Our dream is to bring back smile to the individual and to the families with this conviction that one day we shall overcome!

I believe every individual has potential even if they fail to do it due to lack of communication skills. They have the right to achieve in alternative ways. The roads we take are not the only roads to reach our destination. We should accept and respect differences because every child counts, every life counts.
DR. ALAMGIR MD SHOAB
Being a parent of a special needs child, the first and the most essential belief we all should have is the acceptance. If we cannot embrace the incapabilities of our children, then all our effort and support towards them would not bring any positive changes in their life. Because eventually our actions would show what we feel for them, and that is nothing but mere sympathy. Therefore accepting every child with their special needs is the first key to open up the door for enlightenment through which these beautiful children would be able to participate in building our nation.

Children with special needs are increasing day by day over the world. Early inclusive intervention may provide better improvement for children who need support for learning. Orchestra is a center which maintain high professionalism for improving the skills of those children in need by addressing the problem through intensive assessment. This center always tends to support parents as well as children. I feel very proud to be a part of them. I truly believe, one day, this center will become one of the most popular centers in Chittagong which eventually will make its mark in Bangladesh.
I wish them all the very best for their future endeavor.
DR. SUMISTA BARUA
We all must change the perspective towards special children. Every child has possibility to success whether they are with or without special needs. We must accept them with their strengths as well as with their weaknesses. Let us join our hands together to help these exceptional children to improve their skills so that they are able to stand up on their own, and be independent in their life.
