Programmes offered are:-

  • - Home visits are carried out along with other professionals to assess the home environment for mobility and recommend necessary environmental modification and adaptation.

  • - The Physiotherapist’s role encompasses educating the teachers, teacher aides, volunteers and caregivers in the management of physical challenges faced by the pupils.
