Message from the President
The year 2017-18 was an eventful one with many new things happening at Khushboo.
We set up an Audiometry room for helping children with speech and hearing difficulties. A special equipment “Full Body Vibrator” was installed to facilitate muscle repair of children with Cerebral Palsy.
Our team got strengthened with the joining of a Senior 
Physiotherapist and a Psychologist. Not to forget our existing staff, we helped them to further build their capacities by exposing them to new techniques and skills through participation in external training programs.
A new sports program aimed at “learning while playing” was introduced with the help of an expert. Yoga, Dance, and Music further enriched our curriculum which underwent a substantial change.The happiness on the face of our children reinforces the belief that we are on the right path. All this has been possible through the support of our donors, staff and other associates/ well-wishers. However, this is an ongoing journey with no destination, only milestones.
The next one we have set for ourselves is to set up a residential facility for these special children, where they can live with dignity and comfort, even in the absence of their immediate families.
I hope we will continue to get the support of our donors, for we can do only what they enable us to do.
With thanks and best wishes
Rakesh Jinsi

Ravishanker Patel a Cerebral Palsy Patient, joined Khushboo’s Pre- School program in April’17. When he joined Khushboo he had a problem with eating, standing and holding objects. He was also dependent on his parents for Activities of Daily living (ADLs).
Khushboo’s special educators and therapist analyzed his challenges and a plan was created which involved providing regular Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Special Education. The focus was on providing training on ADLs to make him self- dependent. Now with the regular intervention of special educators and physiotherapy, he is able to walk with the help of rollator and he is also able to maintain standing position independently for 7-10 seconds.  He is now able to sit, stand in an upright posture which indicates overall improvement in muscle tone. He is also able to perform activities in sitting position without any physical assistance.
His left upper limbs strength is improving as he is using it for performing few activities like picking up. Training to Ravishanker’s parent has also been given by Khushboo’s special educators to guide and monitor the child at home.
At academics level, he has started to do scribbling with thick crayon colors and performs action with rhymes. He recognizes his family, teachers, and classmates. He also speaks few words like “Mama, Papa, Dedo, and Ma’am”. He also enjoys playing with a ball and throws the ball.
