Special Need Children
Please Support

P1ims01 Taking care of a child with mental and physical disability is very hard and demanding. It is more challenging when the child is from a poor family. Such children require special care and attention for their overall development. The critical task is developing and maintaining a focus on abilities rather than on disabilities, then honing those abilities to provide the greatest degree of confidence and self-esteem. However, their families are not trained to take proper care of them, and it is beyond their means to give them the special attention they deserve. To make matters worse, competent facilities aimed at their well-being and special educational needs of such mentally challenged children in those rural settings are practically non-existent. These children are hence typically left behind without any essential life skills or self-esteem. Read more.
