 Empower the Challenged Child
Akhil Babu, is a 10-year-old child having Spastic Cerebral Palsy of Diplegic variety. As a baby, all his developmental milestones were delayed. From the beginning itself he had problems with learning and poor socialization skills. He had a difficulty in using hands and movements were limited to crawling Akhil joined Adarsh at the age of 6 years. He used to attend school till 3 pm everyday. His stint at Adarsh showed improvement in his ability to communicate with others and academic standards. There was tremendous increase in his physical abilities as well. Over a period of four years, he was made capable of standing on his own and also started walking with the aid of a crutches Akhil left Adarsh at the end of 2003. Now, he is in seventh grade in a mainstream school close to his home. He walks to school everyday, eager for his classes and happy at the thought of making new friends, thus opening up a whole new world of possibilities for him
 Black days are over for Aarthy
Arathy is a 10 year old child studying in Adarsh. She has severe autistic features but can sing well and enjoys music. She has very mild socialization problems but severe communication and learning problems and disabilities. Aarthy needed one to one attention to comprehend matters. At Adarsh, we provided this special one to one attention, with a special educator attending to her. In addition, by enabling her to learn music, her confidence level and even socialization skills generally improved. Everyday she gets an attention of a special educator. She is now able to attend academic sessions and is in UKG level. The 2 years she spent in special education classes have brought about this improvement. She comprehends the class lessons, and now we feel she can progress well in academics too
 Jaya- A happy mother
Jaya Sony is the mother of a Cerebral Palsy child and used to be with her son during his time in school. She helped her son in the class room as well as in the therapy session. But majority of the time she was just sitting in the classroom without doing anything with her son. We realized her capacity. She was appointed as a member of the Parent Support group and now assists in the speech therapy class. She can also assist in other areas like academic classes, occupational therapy classes and in socialisation activities. Now she helps not only her son but also other children with challenges. More than that she now is now getting an income from this. She is happy, fully involved in her work, and is able to engage herself in a gainful occupation while attending to her son's needs.
 Krishna Das is now regular in the school
Master Krishna Das is a child in class 2, with severe CP but near normal IQ, who can not and will not attend the school without this facility . He cannot come to the school by private buses as he is severely disabled We provided him the vehicle support. It was a great boon for him and his mother. Now he and his his mother come in the school bus every day. He has been using this facility for over 3 years. He is being picked up and dropped back at the doorstep everyday After the introduction of the Vans, Krishna Das is very regular in the class. He is attending all the therapy session and class room regularly without any break. This also motivated him to come to school everyday
 Ambika helps children in the bus
We have 4 own vehicles and 2 hired vehicles. Earlier there was no support in these buses for the mothers to get in and out of the bus with their children. Sometimes it was very difficult for some mothers to carry their aged children Ambika is from a financially backward family. One of her two children is mentally challenged. Her husband is also working for daily wages. We appointed Ambika as the bus in charge for the vehicle and studying in a special school. She helps the mothers to get in the bus and out with their children. She likes this job Now mothers are happy as they are getting adequate support in the bus. Ambika also earns a small income by doing this. She reacts spontaneously if an emergency situation arises in the bus. She gives reports to the principal that school knows all the details of bus journey.
 An Independent Life–Myth or Reality?
Al-Safeer, a 14-year-old boy, is a Cerebral palsy affected child. He had underdeveloped muscles of the limbs and torso. Also he had developed a curved spine and limbs. As a result, he had a totally wrong posture (slouched position) and could stand only with support. In 2004, with help from Adarsh, he underwent specialized orthopedic surgery, for correction of posture as well as straightening of limbs. All through this procedure, Adarsh was very cooperative. Post –operative physiotherapy, which is crucial, was also given at Adarsh. Al-Safeer is now a regular at Adarsh. Of a pleasing disposition, he is taking to the rigorous physiotherapy, advised by doctors, with a calm attitude and toothy smile. His posture has become normal and he is now very much on the road to walking independently, though yet to gain full usage of his limbs.
