Yes, we have a lot of students who approach us for the same. We need a letter from the college describing the details before they can start with us.

I live far from Khushi centers’ locations, is there any option for home programs? Are there any online consultations as well? What is the follow-up procedure, if I opt for home program?admin2020-10-07T10:08:01+05:30
Yes, we offer home programs. It’s suggested to meet Reena Singh with your child in the first consultation. However, if this is not possible, we try to understand the child through his parents on the video call. Follow up is usually needed every 15 days or a month depending on the child. All the follow-up sessions are chargeable.
It depends on the child and the severity of the child’s condition. It can vary from 6 month to a few years. Every child is different and so the time span of therapies for every child varies.
If the goals are not met in 30 sessions, then we either simplify the goals for the child or continue with the same goals with few modifications depending on the current condition of the child.
Generally after 30 sessions the goals are discussed again and revised (with the help of Reena Singh). But if the goals are met earlier, then we organize an observation session again with Reena Singh to set new goals.
