Work in field of literacy : In 1972, three children with multiple disabilities, who were marginalized from mainstream schools, were provided with education and therapy less than one roof. DrMithuAlur set up this special school in Colaba under the aegis of The Spastic Society of India (SSI). It was the first center in the country, aimed at providing a holistic approach to education, treatment, support and care of children with multiple disabilities. The first services established included assessments, infant stimulation, home support, therapy

Social Impact : ADAPT (formerly The Spastics Society of India), was founded by Dr. MithuAlur in 1972. It was the first special school in India for children with cerebral palsy. At a time when little was known about developmental implications, Dr. Alur set up the first model to offer treatment and education under one roof. Within a decade, service centres based on the first ADAPT model were established in Kolkatta and New Delhi. The Society set up branches in Bangalore and Chennai, both of which are independent today. Meanwhile, the first ADAPT students were poised to enter the community and needed the necessary occupational skills and training to do so. In 1989 the National Job Development Centre was opened in Chembur, Mumbai.
