Orkids, a chain of multi-disciplinary clinics was started by Geet Oberoi in the year 2000 which provides remedial interventions to children with special needs. Conditions treated by the centre includes Learning Disability, ADD/ADHD. Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Intellectual Impairment, Hearing Impairment, Partial Development Impairment and Developmental delays, etc. The aim of the centre is to provide a chain of clinics all over India so that remedial services are available closer to children’s home rather than the child coming to the centre from a very long distance. It also focuses on filling the remedial gap between the actual performance of a slow learner and expected performance.
The clinic also provides programmes for enhancement of study skills and creative expression and training in National Open School curriculum. Orkids Institute for Higher Learning provides various courses to in-service teachers to deal with special children and also to upgrade their skills and knowledge in the field of special education.The clinic along with various centres throughout India has partnered with schools to provide resources, special educators, free workshops, assessment camps etc and to offer remedial intervention to special children as a service within school environment.
