Rehabilitation Centre for Special Children (RCSC)-PRAYAAS – a project of Indian Council for Child Welfare (ICCW), U.T. Branch, Chandigarh, is working since 1985. This Centre offers services to children suffering with Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Neurological Developmental Disorder, Hearing & Speech Impairment, Mental Retardation as well as Psychological Counseling to their parents/guardians. It also provides educational services to slow learners. Speech Therapists work with these children to improve their communication skills. Clinical Psychologist assesses their intelligence and provides counseling for behavioral disturbances. Occupational Therapist trains the children in their daily living and improves function balance and walking skills of children with handicap.

All these services are provided at nominal charges to the patients under one roof from one building which spares the patients and their families from the hassles of moving from one hospital to another. Once the children are able to walk, talk and take care of their toilet needs they are guided to get admission into main stream schools. Prayaas has a preparatory school for Special Children. Special Educators take care of the educational needs of children with cerebral palsy, hearing and communication problems. Medical Social Worker helps the parents in the process of acquiring disability certificates for their children. Medical Social Worker also helps in organizing camps for disabled persons and helps spread awareness about the benefits of early diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities. Till date RCSC-Prayaas has registered/enrolled 26775 children for rehabilitation in its different departments.
