Corona virus disease (COVID-19) is a newly discovered infectious disease caused by a virus named "corona virus." The lockdown due to COVID 19 has largely affected the lives of at least 1.5 billion students and their families due to school closure. This shift in education from traditional classroom learning to virtual based learning might be one of the largest educational experiments to date. However, this measure does not address educational discontinuity and disruption for all the students, reducing the opportunities for many of the most vulnerable children, youth, and adults – those living in poor or rural areas, girls, migrant workers, children with disabilities and forcibly displaced persons – to continue their learning. Among them children were stuck at home with no outdoor activities or exposure which has badly affected their psychological and cognitive development and children with disabilities are the worst sufferer.
To address these issues, various steps has been taken by the special educators and therapist to reach out the children with disabilities by physiotherapy services, speech therapy,pre-vocational training, home based management and parents counseling by SPARSH care center of Aaina in Bhubaneswar. Due to pandemic situation children and parents are not able visit the centre physically. So to provide need based service online based learning is planned for these students so as to prevent disruption in their learning. In this special classes are conducted for both the children and parents to continue home based education and to engage the child in different co curricular activities and fun games. In addition to this, children’s are also engaged in making creative art with the support of the parents by providing with required materials at their doorstep with various precautionary measures to prevent covid-19.
