Summary

To identify & provide early intervention to children below 5 years with mental handicaps or at risk for developmental delay, by professionals & trained women from the target area.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Intellectual Disablity in the target community.Poor mothers and their mentally handicapped offsprings will be benifitted.Superstition leading to nonacceptance, discrimination and problems caused by poverty, denies the children timely intervention that prevents avoidable secondary handicaps.Women, particularly mothers of the disabled, need support to confront problems caused by poverty and its impact on the disability of their child

How will this project solve this problem?

Detection of mothers and children "at risk" for developmental delays; intervention for a target group of children; training of midwives, health workers, teachers of special education and other professionals in the target community.

Potential Long Term Impact

Early intervention lessens impact of disability and prevents onset of secondary handicaps.Training women to become partners in our work provides an income which leads to greater self worth, improves their status and changes community perceptions.
