Dr Khanna firmly believes in unleashing the creativity from within each child as well- she was instrumental in bringing about an attitudinal change where society as a whole started to accept them rather than labeling them as 'useless'.

According to her, real education is that which enhances the dignity of a human being and increases their self-respect. She has devoted 25 years of her life to 'special children' and has been acknowledged by Dr. Abdul Kalam and Mr. Pranab Mukherjee.
