**10-year-old Madeeha was a hyperactive child with limited social skills.** Fearful and shy, she was hesitant to approach other people. Because of her hyperactive nature, she found it difficult to sit in one place and wasn't toilet trained either.**Thanks to the special teachers at AMC, Madeeha was toilet trained, given speech therapy and taught to take care of her body.** Her parents were given guidance and counseling by a psychiatrist as well, which helped them work with her better while at home. Working and sharing classroom space with 15 other children improved her social skills as well.After going through four years of life skill development at AMC special school, **Madeeha can now speak in broken sentences. She can now take better care of herself and also interacts with other children.****Your donation can help children like Madeeha to lead an independent and better life. **You can donate with confidence because every program on our platform is [GIVEASSURED](https://www.giveindia.org/giveassured).**


About The Program

Besides, classroom instruction, the school's activities include painting, crafts and dance.
