A growing number of parents who have children who are either physically, mentally or visually challenged are opting for Vaishishtyam , a special school set up by the Param Shakti Peeth at Vatsalyagram in Vrindavan, which is run and managed by Sadhvi Rithambra.

“We are working to tackle the stigma of disability, so that no parent feels pressured to give up a disabled child, For the past one year, Vaishishtyam experts in child development have been successfully working with parents of children, and they have now successfully integrated themselves in the school system and are taking part in intervention programs,” said school principal Minakshi Agarwal.At present, 70 children, most of them belonging to poor families, are being home-schooled free of cost and are being provided transport from their homes to the school and back as well.
