Independence and Dignity to every challenged child
Early Intervention for a child born with a mental or physical disability is very important for their sensory and academic development. Adarsh Charitable Trust (ACT) began helping challenged children with early intervention programs in 1988 which eventually led to them pursuing their mainstream education.
Programs: ACT has 3 main interventions - i) Adarsh Rehabilitation Center: Facilities provided such as vocational rehabilitation, family counseling, sensory integration therapy and acts as an accredited center for National Institute of Open Schooling, etc. ii) Community Based Rehabilitation includes setting up special schools, mobile hospital to identify disabilities at infancy stage and home based rehabilitation. iii) Child Development Evaluation Intervention and Research Centre (CDEIRC) provides remedial education services and therapeutic programs after thorough need assessment for each beneficiary.
Outcome: In total 276 kids supported with the help of 107 professionals in 2019; 115 children underwent Sensory Integration; 86 children provided with remedial education; 638 infants examined for early detection of disabilities; etc.
