Early Intervention-Unit

It is people who count, not the disability

The Early Intervention Unit caters to the special needs of children from early infancy to six years.

It was started in 1986. The program has just been revamped to meet the needs of children with cerebral palsy and low vision. A regular working day involves group services, physiotherapy, vision training, individual services, speech and communication and group play.

The EI program includes:

  • »    A regular visit to the dietician, for a proper diet program
  • »    A reading program
  • »    Toilet training for the children
  • »    Workshops for the parents on the children's condition, handling techniques, proper feeding, trunk control, and breathing exercises
  • »    Counselling sessions for the parents
