Special kids are very different from normal kids. They need more help in forming a daily routines and healthy habits. In many cases, parents do not let the kids do their own chores due to various reasons. It may be from lack of time to perfectionism. For example, a special child takes more time to eat food and may spread food particles on the floor and make it a mess. It is easier for the parent to feed the child fast and finish the job without creating a mess. Some parents consider this as an issue of personal hygiene, too. But the truth is that, by this method, the child never learns to do chores on his own and slowly becomes completely dependent. This is not the way to help them to be able to live as mature adults in the future. Though at a slow pace, parents should let the special child try doing his chores on his own. It is not an easy task. It takes patience and active effort from parents. We help you with training programs that enable you to do this with love, compassion and happiness.
Learning ladders is a unique concept by Jeevaniyam to identify the hidden talents and inner strength of special children and training them to be part of the inclusive world. This will help the child find his own pace & harmony of living that can lead him to his destiny. It includes basic training including feeding, toileting, social interaction and other daily activities. It is important to find the reason, like sensory or organic in each child and train him accordingly. Here a team of trained special educators, caretakers, and therapists work under doctors making it a complete team to train the child to become self-dependent and more confident.
Any habit is best incorporated when started at the earliest age possible. This is an early intervention unit in which we start training children of such a young age so that they can be molded into adults almost as normal as they can be.This program is headed by special educators, psychologist and is supported by care takers.
The main aim is to make the children adapt to a school environment which is the greatest challenge faced in ASD. By familiarizing the school environment, the program starts by prayer, physical exercise, academics support, healthy food & eating habits, fun games, playing, music, art & craft with recreational activities.

It is almost similar to a preschool training program. At this age, children need to learn more social skills, proper communication, verbal skills and arithmetic skills. But at the same time, special children need to be considered for their specific medical condition too. Mostly they start facing big challenges from school especially in early years. Many special kids drop regular schooling due to lack of proper training & support. At Jeevaniyam, we have shaped this as a proper readiness program to familiarize the school environment and curriculum in a friendly manner.
The main aim is to help special kids to equip themselves to the inclusive education without much struggling. We give kids exposure to school environment prior to their actual schooling.
For Kids From the 4 – 8 Years
This includes 3 days training and 3 days school exposure part time or full time.

The future of an autistic child is the greatest concern and cause of anxiety for the parents. The future is always dependent on how much living skills the child has acquired during the stages of growth. Age group from 14 to 20 is highly vulnerable with the rush of hormones along with the pathology of disease. It is most difficult time for the child and parent to cross the teen age physically and emotionally. But this is also an important stage in life that determines the future life. This includes personality development and other training programs. To make an individual independent by adolescence the parent should start the training from early childhood. Most often parents don’t give an opportunity to develop their basic living skills like having food their own. It happens with personal hygiene and grooming also. Ultimately as the child grows, he or she becomes completely dependent.
This training program is aimed not just to make the child have an independent life but for the overall harmony of the individual with himself or herself and with the surroundings. Vocational training programs are given in computer training, animation programs, Photoshop and graphics. We, at Jeevaneeyam help the child and parents to make the child self-reliant and self-sufficient to the maximum extent possible. It is done with programs like training to initiate a conversation and build it up to a social interaction, money concept, traffic rules, public dining, shopping and specific training in their area of interest and skills with yoga & physical training.
