What Our Parents Say


“My daughter has been going to Ishanya for a year now. The staff at Ishanya are very patient and understand the special needs of my child. They are very open to feedback, and conduct regular followup sessions with the parents. They have created a structured IEP for my daughter which makes it very easy to track the goals.All in all, Ishanya has been a great Support for my daughter.”

mother of 12 year old girl

“My son joined Ishanya about nine months back.He loves his educators and ensures he doesn’t miss the session under any circumstance. He has made a good progress from Ishanya such as increased vocabulary, speech and general awareness. They use good visual tools and are adept at teaching through Ipad based on his Individualised Educational Plan. We look forward to continue our association with Ishanya. Special thanks to Swahti and Sharmila for their care, love and dedication towards betterment of special children.”

mother of 8 year old boy

“Our son has been going to Ishanya since July 2016. Ishanya staff are able to handle my son in a matured and effective way. They are transparent in interacting with parents , whether it is sharing of IEP, progress or other related issues. More importantly , we see the progress in my son picking up computer skills . we would like to continue our relationship with Ishanya . We appreciate the staff of Ishanya in handling adolescent boys.”

mother of 17 year old boy

“It’s been briefly since my daughter has been with Ishanya. In this short period I have seen her more confident, more cheerful and wanting to learn more and compete with her own self. Her self esteem seemed to be boosted. She loves variety now and has moved beyond her comfort zone asking for more challenging things. The best thing is ISHANYA being situated in south Bangalore has reduced the burden for parents to move from pillar to post looking for different vocational/ therapy centres located elsewhere. One gets everything here under one roof. Keep up your good work and may many more opportunities come your way to serve the world of Autism!!!Kudos to your brilliant and dedicated TEAM…”

mother of 26 year old girl

“My son who is 20 yrs old and is on the autism spectrum started computer training with Ishanya in the month of October 2016. The team is extremely positive and dedicated. From day 1 my son took to their environment like a fish in the water. The forte of Ishanya is their skill in identifying every child’s interest area and leveraging that interest to productively engage, teach and lead them to that particular vocation. Their IEP is very good and my son is already showing improvement in his cognition, language and other parameters. The best thing I like about the Ishanya team is their calm demeanor. Their space is clutter free and very soothing for our children. By far this is the best technology based training centre for special needs children and adults that I have come across in Bangalore and I wish them great success in all their future endeavours. We need more spaces like Ishanya!!!!!!”

mother of 23 year old boy
