I am a developmental pediatrician associated with a non-governmental organisation Sangath (www.sangath.com) since Sangath 2002. I work in the areas of early child development, childhood developmental disabilities and adolescent health. My current work aims to ‘task-share’ complex interventions for Autism and other developmental disabilities to non specialists through systematic public health research. At Sangath along with international collaborators we have just completed a pilot trial which has demonstrated the acceptability and feasibility of this approach while simultaneously working on a mhealth platform to support families of children with developmental disabilities. I am also leading an early child development trial in Haryana aiming to evaluate an intervention targeting care in pregnancy, infant feeding and nutrition and early child stimulation designed around the WHO-UNCIEF Care for Child Development Package(http://spring.lshtm.ac.uk/) I also am part of the Technical Resource Group on Developmental Disabilities Ministry of Health, Rashtriya Bal Swastya Karykram; and on the consultative group for the World Health Organisation on ASD and other developmental disabilities.
