Challenge

Many children with disabilities have difficulty in accessing the special equipments, therapy and the education they need at this crucial time of development. Many families are unable to pay for procuring the necessary devices and aids for training. Children who do not have access to Early Intervention services often become less independent, have poorer social skills, have less chance of accessing mainstream schools and their parents have less support and poorer wellbeing.

Solution

The needs of children with disabilities are complex and they require input from various professionals to assist them and specialist equipment. The Early Intervention Unit at Raksha provides intensive input by various professionals all under one roof to help the children develop as much as possible, meeting their individual complex needs. Specialist equipment such as supportive seating is also provided. The unit also provides intensive input to the parents.

Long-Term Impact

If children with developmental delay get the right input at the right time then they are likely to become more independent and therefore be able to contribute to the family unit and the wider society. We would like to include more professionals like Occupational Therapists in our Multidisciplinary team to enhance the quality of teaching inputs. In 33 years we have worked in this area and we could support around 800 children below 6 years and their families.
