Though our school did not win the prize but our efforts were appreciated and it was a good learning for the teachers as well as the students. public awareness 1. a workshop on " neuro-developmental delays" in the local branch of Indian Medical Association to create an awareness among the practicing doctors about how to go about and what to advice when they come across such children in their day to day practice. this was important as most doctors were not aware of what to advice the parents after a diagnosis was made and what was the actual outcome of the trainings that we do 2. got an appreciation award by local branch of IMA on woman's day which was given to 27 ladies for their outstanding contribution to the society. 3. held a check up camp at the local "girls reform centre", the govt. home for destitute girls where we identified 27 mentally retarded girls, did their assessment and gave recommendations on what was needed. we could not provide any further help. 4. got 5-6 articles published in local news papers about the centre and about my story at different times. public awareness 1. talk last may in Kanpur Parivartan Forum, a local body, for creating awareness for the causes and the work done at the centre 2. did a session at a normal school for the teachers on understanding the children as an individual. and a small session with children of 5-10 yrs age on health awareness. 3. did a session with teachers teaching at various schools run by jagriti about health and related issues in children and teachers themselves. 4. annual day celebration in jan this year where there were guest lectures on importance of parents association, what the government can provide and what conditions require medications in these children. And the audience got to see the capabilities of our children. 5. The pre-Diwali craft exhibition cum sale was organized in the month of October and the response was overwhelming. The items made by the children were highly appreciated by one and all. There were decorated candles, decorated diyas, hand painted pillow covers and hankies, greeting cards, gift envelopes, wall hangings, bracelets, anklets, mala, food items(made by parents) packed by children etc for sale. The older children took active interest in the preparations. parents education • did a 5 day orientation program for the parents in march with the aim to make them more aware of ways to handle their children. this was attended by parents of about 21 children. • series of awareness lectures cum interactive sessions – “how to proceed with a challenged child” by Mrs Anju Mishra, principal, Pyssum Day Care Centre, Lucknow. – “scope and limitations of speech therapy” by Ms.Saba Zafar, consultant speech therapist, KG Medical University, Lucknow. – “Government schemes and legal issues related to challenged children” by Mr.K.D.Bajpai from The Spastics Centre, Kanpur. teachers training • did a 5 day teachers orientation workshop in march as there were 4 new teachers. • Two of the teachers pursued the basic foundation course in disability from Chetna Institute, Lucknow and two teachers have enrolled for B.Ed (special education). We also have recruited two new teachers with diploma in special education during the last year. misc updates other important things- 1. the children in the prevocational and vocational group are given weekly tests so that they are sincere for their academic work and take responsibility of their work. this would help them in long run when they are to do some proper job work. 2. children are being encouraged to express themselves more and more in better way to enhance their confidence. 3. more activities for group sharing and caring for each others have been incorporated. problems- still, money is the major factor governing the activities. for the vocational training centre that i have in mind, we are not getting any suitable place.
