“The interpretation of dreams is a great art” – Paracelsus Each child is a dream; different yet innovative in his/her own way, and all they need is an interpreter. Once a dream is interpreted, it just needs that extra push to be turned into reality. Genuine care and understanding is the approach towards interpreting the dream. A little push, using tailor-made intervention plans and well coordinated teamwork, can strengthen and channelize the child’s abilities towards an independent functioning. Little Pods is an attempt to bring in a set of carefully chosen expert professionals under an umbrella, catering to all your child’s needs towards an enhanced quality of life. I am pleased to introduce these services with a promise to strive towards a healthy relationship with all our associates.
