Treatment The unit has been designed so that the child can be admitted along with the mother or primary care giver. To arrive at a proper diag-nosis of the child's problem and plan a detailed management strategy, a detailed assessment of the child and his/her interactions with parents is carried out. The parents' attitudes towards the child are observed, as is their approach to handling the child's prob-lems. An investigation is undertaken about the child's relations with peers, and his/her interactions in the school and other environ-ments.

Management consists of both pharmacological and non- pharmacological treatment.

Non-pharmacological interventions include

  • Psychotherapy and counselling of the child
  • Parental guidance sessions and family therapy
  • Play therapy
  • Discussions and group meetings for family members
  • If necessary, the child's school is visited to gather information about the child's performance, behaviour and interaction with school authorities and peers.

For children with mental retardation and developmental disabilities:

  • The mother is taught about the techniques of training by the staff
  • The mother imparts training to the child under the guidance of the staff

The children follow a structured daily schedule. Activities are tailored to develop problem solving, communication and social skills and include:

  • Physical exercise
  • Indoor and outdoor games and sports
  • Study
  • Story telling
  • Creative work such as drawing, art and crafts, clay modeling etc.
  • Dancing and music
  • Group discussions

The children are an integral part of the Antara community, and participate in all the outings, cultural programs and festivals celebrat-ed at Antara. Special days for both inpatient and outpatient
