This intervention is unique in the sense that it provides a transformative and learning experience to the children, which helps them to overcome their communication and motor impairment. Smart boards and other interactive teaching aids.

 

Counselling


This intervention facilitates the integration of the child with the family as the latter plays an important role in rehabilitative progress of the person. The process of counselling involves;

  • Understand child’s uniqueness, identify their strengths/talents and their struggles/areas of development
  • Develop a partnership between the teachers and parents to bring desired changes in the child
  • Facilitate learning new skills and try new behaviours

 

Since the parents and children struggle with challenges in everyday living, skills/new skills lead to improvement in the quality of life of children as well as the parents.

At Khushboo, counselling is an important and integral part of the care process.

 

Yoga


There is enough evidence that Yoga works at different levels and is an effective therapy for conditions that do not have any conventional treatment methods. Children with Down syndrome and other development disabilities, who practice Yoga often surprise their families and teachers with the quick mastery of basic motor, communication and cognitive skills. Regular practice of Yoga leads to greater concentration, balance and composure in their daily living. Long-term gains include relaxation and softening of inner tensions/blockages, higher degree of body-mind equilibrium and a feeling of energetic buoyancy that enables them to carry through even the most difficult days.

Yoga sessions are an essential part of the daily activities for all children under our care and are formally included in the curriculum.

 

Expressive and Performing arts


Activities such as dance & music encourage large muscle movements and promote greater joint mobility. It also improves muscle tone, spatial awareness & co-ordination and kinaesthetic. It stimulates the “feel good” endorphins and facilitates enhancement of social skills.

It is tailored to meet the individual needs and capabilities. It is one that has the highest level of participation from the children who eagerly look forward to these sessions.

 

Computer Laboratory


Given their handicaps, persons with disabilities have limitations in participating in a typical classroom environment. In this lab we use computer based technologies which enable them to participate in a broad range of educational activities and become active learners alongside peers who do not have disabilities.

A specially designed programme- Ability Enhancement Multimedia programme, provides a comprehensively structured multimedia training .Over a period of time, this leads to enhancement of the capabilities of the children. It also helps them to get trained in fine arts/computer graphics and use it as a productive vocational skill.
