SFT is a diverse community that enables each student to be an inspired, lifelong learner and a responsible, compassionate global citizen. The core belief of the Shaurya Foundation revolves not only towards educating people with special needs but also preparing them to be self-sufficient for their future venture while strengthening them with life skills. The essence of the Foundation is inspired by the parents of a child with autism, Mr Ravi & Mrs Rani Gupta’s vision towards contributing to the society. They ideated and initiated an ecosystem that could have individuals from across the disabilities spectrum who could complete each other harmoniously under one roof. Being a parent of a child with special needs has taught them that trying is more valuable than achieving and persistent effort always leads towards success.
Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (for example, crawling and walking).
Children develop at their own pace, so it’s impossible to tell exactly when a child will learn a given skill. However, the developmental milestones give a general idea of the changes to expect as a child gets older.
At least 25% of hearing loss among babies is due to maternal infections during pregnancy, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection; complications after birth; and head trauma.
Some of the most common known causes of intellectual disability include fetal alcohol syndrome disorder; genetic and chromosomal conditions, such as Down syndrome and fragile X syndrome; and certain infections during pregnancy.
Children who have a sibling with autism spectrum disorder are at a higher risk of also having autism spectrum disorder.
Low birthweight, premature birth, multiple birth, and infections during pregnancy are associated with an increased risk for many developmental disabilities.
