Help a differently abled child get independent with therapy

Help a differently abled child get independent with therapy

Impact

Jerin can now walk thanks to someone like you!

Jerin is a 16-year-old boy from Kochi who suffers from Cerebral Palsy. His father is a daily wage worker and his mother is a housewife.

They barely had enough money to pay for their necessities. They had absolutely nothing to help Jerin with. The family was distraught over his condition as they thought that it would be the end of the road for him.

He was found by Adarsh Charitable Trust and they took him under their care. He was unable to walk and could barely move any of his muscles. To correct this, he was given orthopedic surgeries followed by regular physiotherapy. He slowly began to gain control over his physical functions.

Jerin has been under the care of Adarsh Charitable Trust for the past 12 years and his health has seen great improvements. Over time, he was even able to start walking with the help of a stick! What seemed like an impossible dream to Jerin and his family is now a reality.

Program Description

Adarsh is a rehabilitation center for children with physical and mental disabilities in the state of Kerala. The major activities of the foundation are physiotherapy and special education. These are implemented by trained physiotherapists and special educators. There are also assistant teachers and supporting staff to help the children.

Children with disabilities are identified through thorough evaluation and assessment using various tools. Children below 3 years need the only physiotherapy while those above 3 years need both physiotherapy and special education. These services play an instrumental role in the child's improvement. But supporting these activities and staff are a matter of huge concern for the foundation as half of the students fall below the poverty line and cannot afford these services.

Donations made to this program support the cost monthly tuition, physiotherapy fees, and administration cost.

A donation helps bring a tremendous change in the lives of these little ones.

Story from the field

Kasinath, a 12 year old boy afflicted with Cerebral Palsy joined Adarsh in September 2008. At the time of admission, all his developmental milestones were delayed. He had both motor and sensory impairments. He was not able to sit or even stand without support at the time of admission. Based on the evaluation, he was admitted in Early Intervention Unit of the centre where he was being given regular intensive Developmental therapy along with sensory and communication training. At the age of 4 years he started walking with slight support and still he needs support for waking due to his severe muscle spasm. After 6 years he was promoted to next level of training to make him independent in daily life. Now he is in functional academic class where he is trained to learn basic concepts like number, letter, shapes, colour etc. He had some bahavioural issues like spitting on others, temper tantrums etc. With the help of regular Psychotherapy all his behavioural issues are now very much under control.
