CogniAble – Combining the best of gold-standard clinical approaches with innovative technology to serve children

The Story behind CogniAble

Two of CogniAble’s co-founders are the husband-and-wife duo, Mr. Manu and Mrs. Swati. Swati is a child psychologist and special educator with 18+ years of experience, and has always seen the growing need for better special needs services. However, personal transformation happened for the pair after the diagnosis of their only child with Autism in mid-2000s. Facing immense struggles while exploring services across USA, India and few European countries, they recognized the need of combining the best intervention approaches with technology to scale up high-quality services for similar children across the globe. They brought together a team of co-founders & members passionate for innovation in this field, and thus began the journey of CogniAble.

Founded by researchers and scientists from IIT-Delhi along with pediatricians, psychologists and BCBAs from India & USA, CogniAble brings affordability, accessibility and high quality management solutions for neurodevelopmental disorders like Autism right at our clients’ doorstep.

Our Mission

Enabling Special Needs Lives, the Data Way” is CogniAble’s mission, and our founders and team strive to achieve this each day. CogniAble has been developed with four major objectives – Providing solutions that are affordable, usable by all caregivers, remotely accessible and data-driven.

Our Centers

CogniAble Center was founded to provide inclusive education to children in their formative years through an interactive and child friendly environment. We provide multi-disciplinary, holistic and customized therapies to our children by trained professionals. Dr. Himanshu Khurana laid the foundation of the center in association with Dr. R.K. Jain who is a Senior Pediatric Neurologist. The center now has a multi disciplinary team, making it an ideal inclusive place to diagnose, assess, rehabilitate and educate the children. With established centers across the Delhi-NCR region, we understand that there is a huge gap of credible services in the Indian market’s special needs care and therapy segment. We aim to build a pan India set-up having world class expertise both in products and services, so that we can reach out to as many people in need as possible.
