Abi Sidharth was abandoned in a subway near Chennai central railway station. When he came to Sri Arunodayam in 2005, he was dependent on others for his activities of daily living, was totally immobile and could stand or walk. He endures sever mental retardation and Cerebral Palsy.
At Sri Arunodayam we placed him in the pre-primary level for special education and the goals set for him were Number skill – identify short, long, tall, Money skills – select a rupee note from other paper objects, reading – to sequentially arrange 5 pictures and tell a story, fine motor – screw and unscrew a bottle or jar lid.
