Rehabilitation of Special Children
  • Crisis: Recognizing special children as people with rights, who deserve the same facilities available to others, the Ritham Special School was founded. The School caters mostly to special children from economically backward families, many of whom were not getting adequate attention to their disabilities because of their parents' ignorance.
  • Programs: i) Special School admits children with Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and multiple disabilities and focuses on functional education aimed at making the children independent by providing personal, social and occupational competency. Vocational Training is also provided to the special children. ii) Early Intervention Center focuses on movement and play experiences providing foundation for development of cognitive, social, motor and speech activities of special children between ages of 0-6 years. iii) Physiotherapy decreases stiffness, improves muscle strength and endurance and stimulation amongst special children who face movement and balance problems. iv) Speech Therapy, Free Medicines, Free Transport, Counseling to parents are some of the other services offered.
  • Outcome: During 2018, 70 students benefited through Special School, 6 students through Early Intervention, 36 students through Vocational Training and 18 children through Outpatient Therapy.
