UNICEF’s Education Strategy 2019-2030 document points out that “the breadth and depth of the learning crisis provides the greatest global challenge to preparing children for life, work and active citizenship in the 21st century. No task can be more important in the service of the world’s children.”

In this context, Daya’s Neuro Education program has brought a unique dimension for change in learning outcomes and the all round development of individuals linked to brain development.

Daya Bhagwandas started her professional career as a Speech Pathologist and Audiologist and transitioned to her current work, dealing with the root causes behind speech, reading, writing and learning challenges, including behaviour and social skills.

In Australia she headed up Gymbaroo as its Assistant Director, the country’s largest Early Childhood Development network with 65 centres. She edited the book “Tomorrow’s Children” educating parents on the importance of early childhood development and how to develop intelligence and life long learning.
