Report on ‘HELP CEREBRAL PALSY AFFECTED CHILDREN’
(Project #39831 from Balajothi Centre for the Disabled

As explained in
the Project, Cerebral Palsy is a non-progressive disorder that causes physical
disability in development mainly in the areas of body movement and control. It
is caused by damage to the motor control centers of the developing brain and
can occur during pregnancy, childbirth or after birth. Children affected by CP
have problems in perception, communication, cognition and epilepsy. It also
leads to musculoskeletal problems resulting in difficulties in movement and
with CP affected children providing regular physiotherapy and other activities
which result in increasing flexibility of muscles. We also educate & enable the parents to
follow through the sessions at home. This project equips Balajothi Centre with
the much-needed physiotherapy equipment & training aids for the program.
Neglect of a CP
impaired child can lead to lifelong inadequacies impacting the child's life.
Regular therapy & training sessions help the children lead near-normal
lives. Failure results in tightening of ligaments & spasticity leading to
permanent immobility. They are trained for: SELF CARE: bathing, toileting,
dressing & grooming. MOBILITY: to safely and independently move around.
Communication & Social Relationships: Child's interaction especially other
people. Thus giving them SELF ESTEEM and independence in mobility.
