From a parent’s point of view, I am most satisfied with the fact that I am able to have proper two way communication with Shane albeit a few simple words, I am able to understand him and vice versa, this helps me attend to his needs. Shane has also developed into a better behaved boy; especially in public. Hence we are able to do more things outdoors. This creates a special bond between us. He also takes instructions well, and obliges accordingly. His writing skills or drawing skills have definitely improved. He is more tolerant now with his sister when they play together. Overall the changes have been positive, and much appreciated.
As a parent, I am very happy to see improvements in my son, Keizrul Zarief. He joined Taarana on September 2012, and since then, we have seen great improvements in his eye contact when he is interacting with us. In terms of listening to instructions, there have been improvements but so far, it is not that noticeable as for now. Keizrul’s attempts on producing sounds and speech have also improved and we are very proud of him. Nowadays, he is also more calmed in demeanour. I am not sure whether this is a good but my wife and I is very happy the fact that my son’s curiosity and courage in tactile – sensory behaviour has also improved Thank you, to the teachers and staff of Taarana in making it all possible for us.
My experience with Taarana has been very satisfying and enlightening. From her hesitant, introverted disposition, my adopted daughter Putri has blossomed into a lively, talkative and positive person. She is also more ‘in control’ of herself and is able to cope better with difficult moments. I want to thank Dato’ Vijay Eswaran and Datin Umayal for their culture of giving and helping those less fortunate
