Challenge

Smrithi School is not currently equipped or staffed to provide PT, so this project aims to equip the school with PT equipment, PT assistance/aide training as well as Emergency First Aid training. This will allow full capacity of rehabilitation with the goal to maximize functional control of the body or increase gross motor function.

Solution

Children with CP experience mobility, function, posture & balance challenges & PT is critical to increasing their mobility and independence. PT empowers the children physically & emotionally & sets the stage for entering adulthood as an independent individual. Additionally, a successful PT program allows a parent to see their child using their body to the best of his or her ability, and potentially, living independently.

Long-Term Impact

In addition to capacity building of the staff, improved quality of care at the school will help prevent further phyiscal deterioration of children with Cerebral Palsy.
