Head of Developmental Services, Children First
Lavina Nanda is the Head of Developmental Services at Children First, a child and adolescent mental health institute in New Delhi. She holds almost a decade of experience in working with children with developmental delays and differences, as well as their families in an integrated way. She strongly believes in the power of early intervention and is extremely passionate about understanding and accepting neurodiversity in children. Apart from being a developmental therapist, she coordinates the Gender Service at Children First. She also finds herself most embodied when collecting experiences or engaging in the magic of DIY creations, from collecting lapel pins to colour-coding drawers, from making alter-books to creating weird concoctions of flavours.
