Ensure Nutritious Food-Children with Special Needs
By Eashaan Kappagantula - Donor Reporting Manager
Amit (name changed) joined the Special Care Center at Save The Children India at the age of 6, Amit was inattentive and hyperactive, and did not sit in one place for too long. He was being brought to a formal system of schooling for the first time since he was diagnosed with a hearing problem. With very few words in his vocabulary and unclear speech, he simply used gestures as a medium of communication. Techniques to increase his sitting tolerance/patience in class and attention skills, alongside speech therapy sessions twice a week, has resulted in great progress in Amit's demeanor and communication skills. Now, he even tries to communicate in complete sentences. His mother cannot contain her happiness when quoting to us what his Occupational therapist from outside the school has to say. In the words of his therapist, "Ever since Amit started attending school, his communication skills using language and speech has been improved tremendously."
With the aid of your generous contributions, young children with special needs, hundreds others like Amit, will be able to gain access to a nutritous meal, which will aid in their holistic growth and development.
