" AUTISM has a huge spectrum, on one end you have a child who may never learn to speak or do daily activities without help and on the other hand you have other children who are able to live a relatively normal life with minimum assistance "
" One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time "
" Lack of communication skills isolates autistic people socially "
" Become their friend "
" Spend time with them "
" Come and play an instrument teach them a song or two "
" Take them out "
" Share your skill and knowledge "
Parents of special need children are plagued with “ what after us” question all their lives. ALAP was setup to answer that question. Our aim is to provide lifelong care and create an environment wherein all the opportunities will be available for a young adult with Autism to learn and live with as much independence as he can with minimum assistance
No person can survive without the support from the immediate environment and its people, more so the person with special need, as a matter of fact even their families need extended support. Through our various programs like respite care, and organising workshops, and sensitising the various facets of the communities,we are mobilising the support system
Welcome to A.L.A.P
Assisted Living for Autistic Persons (ALAP) was founded in 2018 with the sole purpose of addressing the “What After Us?” question, which haunts every parent of a special need child!
“ They say it takes a village to raise the child; in ALAP we are raising a village to look after one special need child”
What do I say about ALAP. It’s Shagnik’s bro zone and his home away from home. It’s that support system that has allowed me to execute my duties towards my aging parents in Kolkata, which I had been forced to ignore many a times in the past. Not to mention the bliss of a few stolen me moments now and then. And the best part is I can now do all this without that feeling of heaviness, guilt or numbing worry . Thank You for the relief in my mother’s eyes on knowing that I’ll be by her side when my father is wheeled in for his surgery. Thank You for opening your heart to welcome Shagnik right in! And Thank You ALAP for being there, always !

ALAP has grown into an emotion than a dwelling for us. Our association with Neena Wagh started as someone we looked upon for guidance in this tumultuous journey. She carries her life's teachings and her philosophy of simplicity into ALAP. ALAP Home's vision is to inculcate the little joyous moment of life into our children thus helping them come in terms with challenges and look beyond them. It beautifully moulds our children with joy and happiness and teaches them that we all are equal and beautiful. Neena's Life Coaches are her especially chosen teachers who understand affection and love is all you need to make this world a wonderful place. Wishing and hoping ALAP Home's ethics & philosophy is replicated around the globe and keep helping families the way its helping ours.
Our support and good wishes forever.
Assisted Living for Autistic Persons (ALAP) will be completing 3 years soon.
Founded by Neena Wagh, a parent who is dynamic and versatile in many fields.
Besides being a parent she has been an advocate in the field of creating awareness about Autism, legislation and has worked hard towards inclusion of Autism in the PwD act.
Assisted living for Autistic persons (ALAP) aims at creating secure living conditions for Autistic persons to reach their potential and achieve self sufficiency.
Neena Wagh has created an atmosphere and environment through this endeavour (ALAP) to provide a platform on which Autistic persons can strive to exhibit their talent in different fields which may not be academic. This may be in the form of art ie: painting, music and other art forms. Many individuals with Autism have been helped by this ALAP trust in the last 2 years plus.
ALAP Trust has also been conducting talks by knowledgable persons in the field and workshops for sharing information and experiences.
I wish Godspeed and success for ALAP trust in their endeavour.
“ALAP: The one line that comes to my mind when we talk about ALAP, “Home away from Home"
When my son turned 12 and entered puberty my biggest challenge was how to make him prepare for cruel world without his parents. Then came in ALAP and its team as rescue. ALAP has helped my son to grow in a holistic way. I findthisplaceassecureasmyownhouse. Neenajeeislike a second mother to each child their ♡

it to be a very warm and welcoming place for young adults on the Autism spectrum to live with dignity.
With you mentoring the children, the children live a happy and contented life.
They are provided with many avenues to explore and develop their potential and are being provided with as

with minimal assistance.
I wish all the best to you and to the entire ALAP team in their future endeavours.
