Big bullet   Angels at Work - Lakshdram Counselling Centre, Goregaon

Children from Maasti ki Paathshaala at play with a therapet This is a unique project for children with special needs who are provided with various therapy services. It is run by the Goenka and Associates Educational Trust that has incorporated the concept of inclusive education for the differently abled children by establishing this centre at Lakshdham High School.

Therapy dog Dexter works in group sessions. Dexter plays an important role in helping the children socialise and express their emotions in a healthy and appropriate manner. They engage in co-operative play with the dog and learn to take turns in feeding, brushing and playing fetch, which increases interaction among the group members. Through activities like counting biscuits and naming objects or doing puzzles for the dog we also help improve their cognitive skills.
