How a society treats its special children clearly marks its place on social evolution scale. In an evolved society, there is always a special place for special children. We have to take them along in our social journey. I and my colleagues at the centre feel immensely satisfied and happy to serve the noble cause. To help them bloom in childhood and then prepare them for real life ahead is a beautiful and challenging work. I believe an institution is more than a structure. Human emotions and empathetic involvement work wonders while we prepare these children to embrace life with a sense of purpose and accomplishments. And our responsibility becomes all the more important as childhood is a crucial phase of life upon which hinges the entire life and activities. We treat every child at the institution unique in manifestation of abilities and aspirations. And definitely, parents are an important stakeholder in care and training of disabled. We believe that an institution must have clear and sustained contact with parents of the disabled as they form an important motivating and socialising agency. And not only that, society itself needs to revisit its stereotypes and prejudices about special children. The children here may not express themselves like majority but they understand and communicate in a special way. We have found them very talented as their talent has brought the centre medals and laurels in fields like Judos,Arts just any other child. In order to ensure that they lead independent life and get social approval,the idea of Economic empowerment is central idea in our education and we also have taken a lead towards establishing a vocational computer centre. We firmly believe in constantly redefining and orienting ourselves to the best practices in disabled child care education. It is a part of our social collective to see the differently abled children overcome the challenges faced by them in our society and to see them as included in the centre of our society shoulder to shoulder with others.
