SAKSHAM RESOURCE CENTRE
Saksham resource centre has been working for the education, rehabilitation and empowerment of the visually impaired, deafblind and visual impairment with additional disabilities since 2006. Children from 0 to 17 years of age are given admission. Older children are given resource support.
Parents bring their child to Saksham through reference of other institution, other parents, doctors, interventionists or after looking up on the net. Every parent is given a very attentive listening. The senior interventionist interviews the parents and gets the detailed medical history of the child along with the history of the past interventions that the child might have received. The interventionist then interacts with the child and lets him/her mingle with children to assess the child. After an initial assessment the child is placed in an appropriate group under the care of a special educator. A plan is drawn up for the child in consultation with the parents. This plan is reviewed from time to time and amended according to the need and progress of the child.
