Summary

This project will create four early learning centres in rural Bangalore, India, providing educational, speech and physiotherapy to children with learning disabilities. All four centres would support approximately 200 children and train mothers as special educators. The project will help these children gradually step into normal schools, and mothers earn a living.

Challenge

Parents from rural and poor backgrounds with children who have cerebral palsy, epilepsy, vision and hearing impairment, learning disorders, intellectual disability, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and autism struggle to access information and appropriate therapy and rehabilitation. To access a centre, they must travel to far-off places. After several attempts, they keep the children at home, and the opportunity to provide timely therapy is lost. Children remain without progress.

Solution

We want to broaden our reach and create four learning and therapy centres. We will identify children with cerebra palsy, epilepsy, vision and hearing impairment, learning disorders, and intellectual disability and provide speech therapy, special education, and physiotherapy. We will also train mothers of these children on early identification and rehabilitation therapy for their children at home. Some of these children will be in a stage to enter mainstream schools.

Long-Term Impact

Children with disabilities will have access to therapy and rehabilitative services. They would have improved functional capacity and function independently-an opportunity for learning, development, and inclusion into education and mainstream society through meaningful employment. Trained mothers, having restored their confidence will have the opportunity to work with us or anywhere as special educators. The mothers can function as resource persons within the communities where they live.
