Impact

During the 2 weeks of research, I spoke to various kinds of people and 1 specific use case hurt more than any other.

The mother of a child with autism doesn’t have anyone to assist her or her child as all the doctors and therapists have abandoned them. My friend who is a child Psychologist gave the advice required. The mother is a working woman and has to work from home at the same time has to play with her hyperactive kid full day and she is unable to allocate few hours of time to sleep. This has made her health worse now.

Through our product, we believe to consolidate all the experts in the Psychology and Physiology render their service to as many as people in India and reduce their mental stress and bring back their life to normal mode rather than a survival mode.
