Sai Krishna Teja Foundation (SKTF) has constructed a thatched shelter for the parents of the Special Children.
The parents while waiting for their wards to complete the school in National Institute for the Mentally Handicapped (NIMH) had to spend them in the hot sun as there was no shelter earlier. On hearing about the plight of the parents of the special children, SKTF came forward to construct a thatched shelter on the space provided by NIMH.
The shelter was completed and handed over to NIMH. Now the parents of the special children have a shelter to wait for their wards.
There was good response to the Interactive Physiotherapy Workshop conducted on 22nd. Mar. 2015 at AS Rao Nagar Welfare Centre Hall, AS Rao Nagar, Hyderabad. The Resource person was, Dr. Aarti Nair, M.PT, Cert Mgt of CP (England), C/NDT (USA), a proficient physiotherapist with expertise in Neurosciences, Traumatology, Rheumatology and Integrated Therapy with over 18 years of rich experience in various Physiotherapy Departments and Rehabilitation Centres in India and abroad for Children with Multiple Disabilities. More than ninety (90) participants including Physiotherapists, parents along with their children affected by cerebral palsy attended the workshop. Live demo was conducted on the management and techniques of Physiotherapy on the Children with Cerebral Palsy.
Looking at the response for the Seminar and positive feedback for the same, it is felt that there is need for more such Workshops on different aspects of PWIDDs (Persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities).
For the free medical consultation during the week ending 21st. Feb. 2015, experts from the the following disciplines provided their services:
Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Early Intervention, Epilepsy (Fits & Seizures), Physiotherapy & Parent Counselling.
About 25 PWIDs have availed the experts services and counselling at the Foundation’s premises.
To be part of community the persons with mental and development disability (PWID) must be among community and not segregated. Persons with special need should be trained in life skills (toileting, taking bath, dressing and other daily chores) by early identification and systematic training. They should also be provided continuous medical help whenever necessary. From the early stages they must be allowed to mingle with others and encourage them to learn social skills. Persons with special needs must be given opportunity to achieve their full potential by proper training.
Sai Krishna Teja Foundation is sphere heading this cause by continuous campaign and counselling parents, family members and carers.
A typical example is Tejaâ€™s independent living.
