CAPTION: For a long time, Madhushree's mother Bhagya thought that her daughter was a bit of a slow learner, and she had no idea why. Nobody told her that her daughter had autism, and how autistic children could be helped to develop and thrive. During the earliest days following the birth of a child who has (or develops) a disability, parents often struggle to work out what best they can do for him or her, and could use more information and firmer direction. Under the Chamkol programme, such children aged between zero and five and their mothers, expectant mothers and women of child-bearing age will be able to get this through health, wellbeing, development and pre-school programmes run through Early Years' Clubs. LOCATION: Masagapura (village), Kasaba (hobli), Chamrajnagar (district), Karnataka (state), India. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: From left to right: Bhagya, Megha and Madhushree.
