Khushi Pediatric Therapy Centre, Mumbai is a registered NGO that seeks to help and empower children with developmental disabilities which include learning disabilities, cerebral palsy and autism. It offers Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy, Behaviour Therapy, Special Education, Art Based Therapy and Pre-vocational Training. It also conducts Psychometric tests like CARS & IQ and offers Counselling services for parents.
At Khushi, our credo is to enable our children to lead happy, fulfilling lives and to reassure parents that our scientific methodology and techniques have consistently yielded results. Once your child is entrusted to our care, we will design a program that best suits your child's needs. This program is monitored on a weekly basis and updated every month. You will receive weekly reports detailing his response to specific therapeutic tools. Depending on the child's response to treatment, it is also possible to set a realistic goal, a time-frame within which you can expect significant improvements in your child.
Khushi follows innovative techniques to incorporate "khushi" or fun in our therapy. From playing on iPads (helps in developing fine motor skills, enhancing memory and more) to gardening and sand play (for sensory integration or SI, to improve his/her sense of touch), to blowing scented bubbles, a fun sensory experience for kids that also aids in oral motor skills, children at Khushi learn organically and energetically.
Founded in June 2000, in Mumbai, Khushi is run by a team of well-trained professionals who are passionate about their work and treat the children with utmost care and love.

I am a parent of a nine year old girl, diagnosed with PDD-NOS at the age of 2 years. We didn't know what would be her future like. My daughter had no communication skills, she hardly spoke a few words, inattentive, not interested in playing with other kids. We were recommended Khushi for OT and Behaviour Modification Therapy. At Khushi, she began OT thrice a week in the beginning and group therapy once a week. Within 6 months my daughter started communicating her needs. In the next year she became more aware of her surroundings.+ read more
My son was diagnosed with Autism just two week before he could turn 2 years of age. Autism was a total new word for me which I had never heard before. My life came crashing down, did not know what this disorder was and what it could do to my boy and his future. To know things in details I went to sites and got a good amount of information for myself, but this too was not satisfying me and this was driving me crazy minute by minute. Dr. Vibha Krashnamurthy who had diagnosed my son referred me to Khushi+ read more
I have a son, 12 years of age and he is autistic, It is unfair to separate the two, i.e. autism and the child. But, however, for parents to accept the same is difficult. It has almost taken me 12 years to come to the right path. In the haste to make them "NORMAL", we miss the actual picture, as a result in my son's case, he has become prompt dependent. Practically at the age of 12 he is skill dependent for most of his activities. It is now I realize that the school where I had put him, for purely academic purposes is not helping him.+ read more
Our son, is autistic and microcephaly, and has joined Khushi in Feb 2009. His sitting tolerance was very less and he was highly restless. Initially, he started with one to one therapy. After some stability at the therapy centre we suggested having him admitted for a three hours school. However, since he was highly restless, he was shifted to one on one pattern again. Ofcourse, this was only after deliberation with us. Adapting the curriculum to my son's ability and also his mood swings has been the major highlight in last 2 years.+ read more
