Help a mentally challenged child reach school

Impact

Dipanshu’s struggles led him to the State Level Special Olympics!

Dipanshu is a young boy from a poor family in Gurgaon. He suffers from multiple disabilities and his life was hard right from the beginning.

He could not speak a single word or walk properly. His father was an alcoholic and spent the family’s minimal earnings on his addiction. Dipanshu’s fate seemed dark as there was no way his family could afford to treat him.

When his mother found out about the NGO Khushboo, she enrolled him there. Khushboo provided Dipanshu with special education, physiotherapy and speech therapy. They also guided his mother on how to care for him at home. They ensured that he was able to come to their center every day by providing free transport for the family.

Regular therapy has changed Dipanshu’s life. He can now speak and balance his body. He is a good student and a gifted athlete. His drive and talent have led him all the way to the State Level Special Olympics!

Program Description

Until Khushboo's inception 21 years ago, the city of Gurgaon did not have a dedicated center for education and care for children with disabilities. Since Khushboo started its journey it has developed into a landmark institution for a range of special needs services for the differently abled.

About 10 children in the age group of 3 to 6 years attend their pre-school where they are trained on activities of daily living, while 45-50 special needs children in the age group of 6-18 years attend the Special Needs Education Program.The school follows Individualized Educational Programs based on assessments and reviews, and shape an individual course of educational instruction for each child. Students who qualify for the Open School system are given parallel academic training.

Donations made to this program support the cost of fuel, driver's salary, and bus maintenance. Donate to this program and help a disabled child reach school.

Ravishanker Patel is a child with Cerebral Palsy, joined Khushboo’s program in April’17. He had problem in eating, standing and holding objects. He was also dependent on his parents for Activities of Daily living (ADLs). He comes to school on the school bus. Special Educators and Therapists analyzed his challenges and started Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Special Education. The focus was on providing training on ADLs to make child self- dependent. Now with regular therapeutic intervention he is able to walk with the help of rollater and he is also able to maintain standing position independently for 7-10 seconds. He is now able to stand in upright posture which indicates overall improvement in muscle tone. He is also able to perform activities in sitting position without any physical assistance.

Story from the field

Anmol Sharma is a 19 years old boy with Down syndrome. He was admitted to Khushboo due to his sub- average intellectual functioning and adaptive skills. At the time of admission he was fully dependent on his parents for Activities of daily living. His communication skills and social skills were also not age appropriate. After detailed assessment by our multidisciplinary team, a management plan was developed for him. He is now fully independent in all the activities of daily living (including dressing and grooming) and can take care of himself. He has even successfully passed an 18 month 'Ability Enhancement Multimedia Program' certified from AIIMS Multimedia and has learnt Basics of Computer, Coral Draw, Photoshop and other advanced computer program as a part of the course curriculum.
