Project Report | Jun 27, 2024
Life Therapies are crucial for Rehabilitation

By Hussain Lashari | Project Lead

Intellectual disability remains a significant challenge in Sindh, Pakistan, with a lack of adequate resources and support systems for affected individuals. This project report aims to highlight the current situation, identify gaps, and propose strategies for addressing the needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities in Sindh. We do provide free life therapies to support children with disabilities in following services:

Speech and Language Therapy: Many children with Down syndrome benefit from speech and language therapy to improve communication skills. This therapy focuses on speech clarity, language comprehension, and social communication skills.

Occupational Therapy: Occupational therapists work with children to develop fine motor skills, self-care skills (such as dressing and feeding), and sensory integration, which can enhance their independence and participation in daily activities.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy helps children with Down syndrome improve gross motor skills, strength, coordination, and balance. This can support their physical development and participation in sports and recreational activities.

Social Skills Training: Programs that teach social skills, such as turn-taking, sharing, and making friends, are beneficial for children with Down syndrome to improve their interactions with peers and adults.

Educational Support: Specialized educational programs and inclusive classrooms provide opportunities for academic learning tailored to the individual needs of children with Down syndrome. This includes modified curriculum, assistive technology, and support from special education teachers.
