Podcast #5: Ruby’s Autism Journey in India (and How You Can Help Your Child Thrive Too!)

Struggles in the UK, Breakthroughs in India: Hear Sarah’s story of her daughter Ruby’s incredible progress with autism therapy at Ananya Child Development Center. Learn about holistic care, hidden food intolerances, and how Ananya supports the whole family. Plus, get tips for your own child’s journey!


Madhavi: Hi everyone, and welcome back to the Ananya Child Development Centre Podcast! Today, we’re thrilled to have Sarah with us. Sarah, welcome!

Sarah: Thank you so much, Madhavi. I’m delighted to be here.

Madhavi: So, Sarah, you’re here with us today to talk about your daughter, Ruby. Ruby’s on the autism spectrum, and you’ve come all the way from the UK for her early intervention therapies here at Ananya.

Finding Options in the UK

Madhavi: Absolutely. It sounds like a challenging situation in the UK. Can you tell us a bit more about that?

Sarah: Sure. On the NHS, getting any treatments takes months – just to even get an assessment. Private treatments are so expensive, and it wasn’t until my husband’s work brought us to India that I even considered going abroad for Ruby’s therapy.

Discovering Ananya Child Development Center

Madhavi: Interesting. So, your husband’s work in India led you to Ananya?

Sarah: Exactly. Since I was joining him for an extended stay, I wanted to explore the amazing healthcare options here in India, especially for Ruby. I looked online for schools for children on the autism spectrum, but wasn’t very impressed with what I found. Then, I stumbled upon Ananya, and what truly impressed me was the world-class facilities you offer. As a mother, I feel confident that Ruby is getting the absolute best possible care here, at a very affordable price compared to the UK.

Ruby's Experience at Ananya

Madhavi: That’s wonderful to hear, Sarah. Can you tell us a little more about Ruby’s experience at Ananya?

Sarah: Absolutely. Ruby receives speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and even joined the summer social skills program. She spends about three to four hours a day here, and the entire process has been effortless. Ruby felt comfortable immediately in the child-friendly environment. We had a thorough interview and received a report with recommendations right away.

Ananya's Holistic Approach to Ruby's Care

Madhavi: That’s fantastic! Did you have any concerns about coming to a therapy center in India?

Sarah: Honestly, to be upfront, yes! When I think of India, I don’t necessarily associate it with advanced healthcare. But my apprehensions were quickly put to rest. Everything at Ananya is up to international standards, from air conditioning to exceptional hygiene. The therapists’ qualifications are top-notch, and everyone speaks fluent English, which made a huge difference for both Ruby and me.

Sarah: Absolutely! They’ve addressed everything from her sensory issues to her skin condition, which turned out to be a food intolerance identified by your wonderful nutritionist! It’s been a lifesaver for Ruby and a huge stress reliever for me as a mom.

The Importance of Family Support

Madhavi: We’re so happy to hear that, Sarah. Ananya truly believes in supporting the whole family.

Sarah: And I can’t thank you enough for that! The parental training and support group have been invaluable. It’s not just about Ruby’s progress, but also about mine and my husband’s well-being as we navigate this journey.


Madhavi: Thank you for sharing your story, Sarah. It’s truly inspiring! As we close today’s episode, remember, you’re not alone on this path. If you’re seeking guidance, resources, or just a sense of belonging, Ananya Child Development Center is here to support you every step of the way.
