Reaching out to children with disabilities in remote areas
Early intervention is recognised as crucial in mitigating and preventing developmental disabilities. Yet services for early intervention are rare in India and non-existent in the rural areas. After an assessment at our government hospital-based centre, this project provides families with follow up services for their children in their own communities. Local level health and childcare workers were trained to identify and refer children and parents meet our team regularly to update their skills and monitor their own kids.
