EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

This approach aids to psychological and organisational development
through coping strategies and adaptability within each individual.

WHAT WE DO – EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES


We believe that creativity and expressive art is very essential for every child. We combine visual art, drama, music, playing instruments in the rehabilitation plan. This approach aids to psychological and organisational development through coping strategies and adaptability within each individual.

  • Mirudangam taught by expert will help nurture musical intelligence. The children learn rhythm and use of bilateral hands which helps in proprioceptive inputs.
  • Kinesthetic needs are addressed through dance, which teaches them imitation skills, body movements with rhythm.
  • Art and craft with use of hands is messy of course, but colours are always fun and so does learning also become.

Chrysalis takes play and recreation very seriously. We have developed unique strategies to include play, recreation and leisure as means to mental and physical well-being. Activity interventions are used to maximise every individual’s functioning and promote quality of living. Yes…it is an exciting session for both us and the children.
