A multimodal intervention was rolled out at a large public school in Najibabad, Uttar Pradesh (UP). The program identified elementary school children with ADHD and Dyslexia using standard screening of all children who had performance impairment in at least one domain of the Vanderbilt questionnaire. The program consisted of play therapy, physical exercise, yoga and meditation. The program was established by High school volunteers from The US and UK over 6 weeks. Once implemented during the morning of school, high school volunteers from the school were trained to continue the program. Vanderbilt questionnaires were completed at intervals to allow follow up.
