President’s Message

Shireen Alam

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!

Advisors & Committee Members

DR. SHAFIA ALAM

ASST. REGISTRAR, DEPARTMENT OF THORACIC SURGERY, CHITTAGONG MEDICAL COLLEGE & HOSPITAL

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 desitination. We should accept and respect differences because every child counts, every life counts.

DR. SHAFIA ALAM

MEDICAL OFFICER, GYNAE OUTPATIENT DEPARTMENT, CHITTAGONG MEDICAL COLLEGE & HOSPITAL

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 strength 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.

DR. ALAMGIR MD SHOAB

EAR,NOSE & THROAT (ENT) DISEASE SPECIALIST AND SURGEON, CHITTAGONG MEDICAL COLLEGE & HOSPITAL

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.

Services

PSYCOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT

Our expert psychiatrist and psychologist go through an assessment through which they will find out the cognitive ability, behavioural and emotional aspects, and environmental adaptability of a child with special needs.

SPEECH & LANGUAGE THERAPY

Speech is an integral part of our life. Our speech therapist helps the children with special needs to interact, form social relationships, and function in their every day of life.

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Our therapist assess and help children with movement disorders, disability or illness. Through effective intervention and support children are able to reach their full potential to function in their life.

NUTRITIONIST

Children with special needs often face obstacles to have a healthy relationship with food. There could be various reasons for which a child can be over or underweight. Our nutritionist helps a child to set up specific guidelines to tackle the challenges they are facing in terms of eating food or to support a child in developing self restraints from having too much food.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

In the life of a special needs child, occupational therapy plays a very vital role. Through effective therapeutic and sensory integration, our therapists help a child to develop motor and life skills. The aim of this is to have meaningful everyday activities that can give a child a sense of direction and purpose in life.
