Overview

Since 2006, SVH has been providing training to children and young adults with hearing impairments, visual impairments or multiple disabilities, in two orphanages, namely, Dayadan Home and Shishu Bhavan Home.

How It Works

• The Society for Visually Handicapped (SVH) assesses the functional skills of students with visual/hearing impairments who have been identified by the Home Authorities.
• All the materials are provided by SVH.
• These students are trained by SVH project teachers for 2 to 3 hours per day, and 2 to 3 days per week, in the area of life-skills which involves day to day activities like eating, using the toilet, dressing, etc.
• The support is gradually removed with the aim of making the students independent.
• Each student has a separate work schedule and Independent Education Plan (IEP), where each activity has long term goals, too.
• The activities are chosen in such a manner as to enhance the abilities of the students to perform their day to day activities independently or with minimum support of their caregivers.

Reaching the unreachable
Cicil is young adult at 16 years of age. He has low vision, hearing and speech impaired, with delayed development. He was hyper active when we started working in 2006 at Dayadan Home.
We tried to break the world of invisible silence. Activities taught were like below : 1. Juice making with lemon/orange—bringing lemon from basket, cutting, squeezing, straining, putting salt & sugar and mixing. This work takes 25-30 minutes. 2. Coloring using brush where the borders are drawn by threads 3. Coactive play like passing the ball sitting in a circle
Cicil, who was hyper active at the beginning, is now co-operating with the teacher in bringing down materials from shelves/almirahs for play, in juice making and other activities. After the work is over, he collects the materials from tables and puts those in the shelves/almirahs. Presence of Cecil is very much required in our activities.
