ARC Rawalpindi was started on 1st Sep 2010. With the increasing number of children and the experience gained the importance of early intervention was realized. Consequently ARC Rawalpindi was divided into three separate branches including an early intervention centre for the very young children, a remedial school for the slow learners and a rehabilitation centre for the older children. Each of the four ASP centres was named after the first child enrolled at the ARC and its founding President.
The early intervention centre was named as Ali Rafay Early Intervention Centre (AREIC) on 16 Oct 2016. It is the largest branch of ARC. It is for the very young children who are given an intensive “one to one” therapy. So far over two dozen children from AREIC have made it to the mainstream schools. It provides the following facilities:
- Diagnosis and evaluation
- Development of Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
- Sensory therapy
- Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) sessions
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Counseling and training sessions for the parents
- Swimming and sports activities
- Training of staff
Amin Remedial School (ARS), established on 1 Jan 2015, is the second branch of ARC Rawalpindi. In the past few years several children from AREIC, who could not make to the mainstream schools, have progressed to ARS where they are taught a curriculum specially developed for them. The main activities of ARS include:
- Academic evaluation/planning
- Curriculum modifications
- Pre-vocational skills
- Sensory modalities
- Music therapy
- Speech therapy
Nadeem Rehab Centre (NRC), established on 1 October 2016, is for the older children who have gone past the age of intensive therapy. At NRC these children are mostly taught about the activities of daily living.
Ammar Autism Resource Centre (AARC) was established on 1st Dec 2015. Under the dynamic leadership of Halima Sadia, in a short span of time, AARC has developed in to a state of the art facility for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It is providing a wide range of management facilities for 25 children with ASD. Following the mission of ASP, AARC is also providing substantial fee subsidy to the needy parents.
