NHCDC is a Centre dedicated to the optimal development of all children. NHCDC was founded by Dr. Samir Dalwai, Pediatrician with special interest in Child Development, child Psychology and Child Law, in 2003 with the vision that ‘Every child can do better”.
Testimony of a parent
“My son took treatment in NHCDC for one year and in this one year I got to know my son’s diagnosis properly. NHCDC team helped me in understanding my son’s health problem and most important their positive attitude helped me accept my son as he is. All my questions were answered here and all the doubts were patiently cleared by team and they also helped me in gaining knowledge. My son is not taking treatment from NHCDC now but still whenever I have problem I always go back to Deepti or Dr Dalwai and get my problem solved and they work as my support and as a friend., showing me that they are not working for money but they believe that every child is special and can show progress.
NHCDC for me is a remedial centre which is systematic, organized, working for the overall development of the child, very professional and at the same time has a personal touch for every child which makes the child and his parents feel at ease. It is working for every child’s treatment and is also doing the difficult task of spreading awareness about children’s problems and the right of a child to receive treatment.”
NHCDC believe and practice working together in an integrated manner with the child as focus of intervention.
NHCDC believe that
*It allows them to understand and help the child and the family in the manner most suited to them.
*It brings about regular coordination between Consultants and Therapists; thus the child gets individualized and personalized therapy.
*The therapy focuses on special needs of every child
*Child adapts faster to such an environment and cooperated better.
