Chiranthana has been doing a great job in empowering children by sensitizing them towards social causes. Using theater as one of the tools is an added advantage because it works on the holistic development of a child.

Perfection, great execution and commitment is what this group is all about! My child has immensely benefitted from Chiranthana’s intervention programs. They are very creative and make learning an enjoyable experience.

Chiranthana gives a platform for children with different abilities and social background to come together and perform on stage . Rachana’s creativity and energy got hem out of their shell. My daughter today is more confident and expressive.

I would like to express my appreciation for Ms. Rachana Prasad, the drama therapist who with her innovative style and patient demeanor was able to interest our children in the dramatic arts at the annual Down syndrome meet for parents – Humsafar held at Golden Palms, Bangalore from the 26th to 28th of May 2017.

Children with Down syndrome are by nature very restless and it is difficult to get them to focus, but Ms. Prasad was able to handle them admirably and get them to learn even as they enjoyed her class. MS. Prasad made the session so interactive that everyone present – parents, persons with Down syndrome and their siblings enjoyed the session and took back great learning on how important it was to emote and understand emotions.

I wish to thank her for her session and would like to place on record our appreciation for her dedication and commitment to persons with special needs, especially Down syndrome. Her session definitely did make a difference to the attitude towards the feelings that are conveyed by persons with Down syndrome. We are sure we will be taking her inputs and utilizing her skills in the future too when needed.
