A word of thanks :

We are so happy that ATIDHI group came forward to take up our protocols of Autism, Cerebral palsy and other developmental disorder management and they are propagating it all over India and worldwide. We are also really happy to announce our wholehearted support and cooperation to this venture so that this helping hand gets to a lot many children .


Every individual's development begins in the womb of a mother. Even though it is a simple cell it holds all the potential to grow as a healthy person in the future. However, after birth, there is a possibility of identifying neurodevelopmental disorders in a child. These are disabilities in the functioning of the brain that affects a child's behavior, activities, memory, or ability to learn and speak such as cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, speech and language impairments, learning disorders and intellectual developmental disorder. A child with these conditions was portrayed as a social stigma. Usually, they were managed and brought back to mainstream life through conventional methods like speech-language therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, sensory integration therapy, behavior modifications, education support, social support, and family support. Now, Ayurveda holds the key to new possibilities to manage these conditions with tested treatments and methods.

Ayurveda, through its time tested treatments has made a significant contribution to the management of these conditions. In this aspect, the contributions of the Paediatric (Kaumarbhritya) department of VPSV Ayurveda College at Kottakkal are internationally recognized, and additionally, many academic centers in Ayurveda are also working towards this goal. Researches showed that integrating Ayurveda in conventional therapeutic management practices can produce a synergetic output. But there are only a few centres where all these conventional therapies are available under a single umbrella. Many such centres are clustered in one place which makes it very difficult for their parents and family as they are forced to leave their jobs, and have to stay away from their home and hometown. In this scenario, an integrated centre within their reach will be a dream of any such parent.

Realizing the importance of this situation ‘ATIDHI Group’ was formed under the leadership of Dr. Smitha K.K. and Mr R.J. Dhaneshkumar in Thrissur to develop the concept of ATIDHI - ‘Ayurveda and Therapeutic Integration for Developmental Habilitative Intervention’ , with its solid and more than one and half decades of professional experience in this field. ATIDHI Group is planning to give recruit professionals and give franchises of ATIDHI centre at every 30 km distance .

  • Kottakkal protocol for all developmental disorders including AGASTYA for Ayurvedic management for autism spectral disorders in children.
  • Multidisciplinary Habilitative intervention system including speech language therapy, sensory integration therapy, physical therapy, behaviour therapy, educational habilitation, etc.
