About Us

Children who show traits of Autism, ADHD, Learning Disability, Down's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, William's syndrome and other developmental disorders certainly have a tough time settling at school and home. Often, it is due to teachers and parents who do not understand the effective ways to incite behavioural and developmental progress in the child. To address this, we made a team of psychologists who work with children having special needs. Our shadow teachers, special educators and counselors use goal oriented plans tailored to the child's personality to elicit slow but sure progress. But once achieved, we move on to newer harder goals and our final aim is to make the child independent and ready for the future.

Systematic and Transparent Approach

We use proven strategies which work on different domains of the child's personality- communication, attention span, behaviour, speech, fine and gross motor skills, aggression, ticks. Then we create monthly goals, choosing the most important ones first, and use these strategies to effect improvement. Also, once we are successful, we move on to the next goal because WE DONT STOP MAKING PROGRESS.

Monthly goal report are shared with the clients and we also send daily emails to keep clients in loop with daily progress and take their inputs. Everything we do is completely transparent.

At School Services

Shadow Teachers

Our trained shadow teacher facilitates the child at school with 1 on 1 attention using strategies that are customized for each child. We work on academic, sensory, behavioural, social and emotional domains at school.

Our shadow Teaching employees will work wonders for your child in the school setup. Individual shadow teachers have no incentive to make your child independent, and most times act as mere nannies. On the other hand, our employees are trained to employ various strategies to help your child, and we consider an independent child our greatest success!

Soumya Bhatt

Trust, support, patience, acceptance and happiness are the ingredients to transform a child. Therefore, these 5 elements make the basis of all our training. Our Director Soumya Bhatt explains this in her blog post here.

Our approach is quite simple - we make realistic short term and long term goals for your kid. Then we make intervention strategies using various proven tools to reach those goals. Furthermore, we update those goals, and make newer and more challenging goals. Rinse, repeat.

We use play therapy, colour therapy, art & craft, fine motor activities, phonix activities, video & audio aids, etc in our intervention strategies.

We value transparency. Hence we send an official session email to you after every session with us. This way, both you & us are kept abreast of the progress of your child.

Client confidentiality is utmost important to us, and we take great care in protecting your privacy.

Planned, systematic and comprehensive approach…

In my more than three year long association with Starlit (earlier KNACK) services, I have found them to be a very unique organization, working with a sense of commitment and zeal in their chosen field of work.

Extremely happy with the services

I am extremely happy with the services and remedial teacher that Starlit has provided me with. My child has shown such significant improvement and looking at him progress is nothing less than a dream come true. He lacked confidence and was a shy kid before Miss. Archana started working with him. Now, he talks to our relatives who come to visit us and answers all the questions with sheer confidence. Starlit is very professional and systematic in it’s approach. And I am delighted to say that my child has found the best teacher… Read more “Extremely happy with the services”

Really happy with the work done

Hi Soumya and team, I would like to let you know that my husband and I are really happy with the work done by Bhagyashree Thakkar, Sa**’s shadow teacher. She is really dedicated towards her work and has positive attitude towards it. She tries her best to coordinate with school teachers so that Sa** can be benefitted by maximum help/support from them. Yesterday Sa** danced pretty well in her school’s Annual Day function. We, as parents, deeply feel that Bhagyashree teacher’s sincere efforts made this possible because just 6 months back Sa** couldn’t perform in a small singing event and started crying. But yesterday she performed on a big stage in front of large audience with loud speakers and lights.… Read more “Really happy with the work done”
