Making a Difference

At Apoorva Centre for Autism, we strive to provide each child with much more than an ordinary education. We pride ourselves on creating a unique, exciting environment that embraces all types of learners and promotes growth both academically and personally. We encourage families to also be a part of the process and help create a dynamic and supportive community.

Apoorva was set up over 25 years ago with the aim of creating an autism-friendly world that ensures every individual with autism can lead a happy and comfortable life. We are extremely focused on our students, constantly creating and updating our programs to provide the best possible education to them. Our work however does not stop there, we also conduct workshops to educate people about autism, hold programs to train special educators, provide counseling and support to families with special kids and even participate in research on autism!
