As a parent, I am delighted to see improvements in my son, Keizrul Zarief. He joined Taarana in September 2012, and since then, we have seen significant improvements in his eye contact when interacting with us.
In terms of listening to instructions, there have been improvements, but it is not that noticeable as for now. Keizrul’s attempts at producing sounds and speech have also improved, and we are very proud of him. Nowadays, he is also more calm in demeanour. I am not sure whether this is good, but my wife and I are very happy that my son’s curiosity and courage in tactile-sensory behaviour have also improved.
Thank you to the teachers and staff of Taarana for 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 can 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.
