Flying High by Heather Lambert

ONE!

Fears and doubts were held by all

Will they rise or will they fall?

Such fragile little kids they are

We are about to push them very far

TWO!

Excitement and wonder at what will come

Curiosity about what might happen to some

Will we survive what the adventure might bring?

We want each child to try every thing!

THREE!

The children have few inhibitions

Many are risk-takers by definition

Adults are often more scared than kids

“Let me go, Mom,” one’s expression bids

JUMP!

Let go of the waist, the hand, the finger

And all of the fears that may still linger

We’ve jumped off the ledge, flying high in the air

Child and parent alike, willing to take on more dares

Bubbles Learning Centre For Autism

The intent of creating an online space for Bubbles Learning Centre is to target a wider audience and to help autistic children reach us at a much earlier stage.

There are very few schools in Bangalore who cater to children with autism. We have very specific programs addressing each of their deficits in skills such as language and communication, play and social skills.

Apart from this, we run an early intervention programme where in skill training is given with a holistic approach.

In Bubbles, we ensure that the student-teacher ratio is small, typically around 1:2.

We lay emphasis on the overall development of the child and enable them to lead independent lives.

Parent empowerment, family counselling, training and their involvement is given major priority in the training process.

The purpose of the counselling sessions is to promote the physical, emotional, spiritual, social and economic well-being of families. The intent is to help the parents understand the full potential of their children and in training the children to achieve the same.
