Our Story

“PARENTS”

It’s such a beautiful and caring word. Parents are essential in our life. The most important and solid pillar of our life. Parents always know that their children better than anyone else.

Obtaining a diagnosis, for example, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for a child can be a stressful, long, and confusing process for many parents. Unfortunately, the challenges that parents experiences during the diagnosis continue with the process of finding, selecting, and obtaining therapy services for their children. Supporting young children’s parents is critical to enhancing healthy early childhood experiences and promoting children’s positive outcomes. Helping parents build strong relationships with their children is the foundation of Symbiosis Pediatric Therapy services.

We believe that parenting a child with some “extra” needs is a challenge for obvious reasons. But it’s a blessing too: You cannot imagine the depths of victory and joy they experience to see their child’s reaction to overcoming his challenges. It’s the simplest things, like seeing his eyes light up waiting for you to acknowledge what he did when he puts his cup down softly instead of throwing it; the smile on his face when he swings on the playground without any help, or even clapping of hands after he uses sign language to say “thank you.” That is how Symbiosis Pediatric Therapy took shape by two parents, Shalini Das and Sumanta Das, two pediatric Occupational Therapists in 2008.
