Nayi Disha Resource Centre is an online information resource platform that supports families of persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). We are a group of individuals who deeply care for the cause of IDD and have come together to form Nayi Disha. The founding team includes parents and siblings of individuals with IDD, who understand the challenges and needs faced by other similar families. We believe that equipping such families with relevant information will improve their care-giving abilities, expand the list of care/ education/ therapy options available, and empower them to become stronger advocates for their wards.
We understand that every person with IDD has unique needs and therefore will require different therapies and services (such as education, therapies and healthcare). We also recognise that every family faces a different set of questions and challenges at different stages of the life of an individual with IDD. Nayi Disha is our attempt to address these important information needs of families of individuals with IDD with this portal. We hope that this portal will help individuals with IDD receive the best possible care and access to services they require, and enable them to reach their full potential.
