Over the past decade, there has been a momentous and dire increase in the incidence and prevalence of children with developmental disabilities. This has raised concerns and stirred the interest of significant people like parents/care givers, teachers, doctors, allied health professionals, and all those related to the cause of improving the quality of life of these children. There has been some remarkable work in this field with increasing awareness among parents/care givers, professionals and the community in general. Lot of the focus has been on developing systems and resources to enhance the process of rehabilitating these children and including them in the mainstream society. Of late, the spotlight has been on promoting early intervention. There has also been an interesting increase in the involvement of a range of health care professionals and education authorities working with children.
