New therapy centre opened at Patiala School for Deaf & Blind
A new occupational therapy centre has been opened at the Patiala School for Deaf and Blind. The center was opened by the local MP Dharmvira Gandhi. The therapy centre was donated by the MP under the Members of Parliament Local Area Development (MPLAD) scheme.
The school's efforts to help the children here was much praised by the MP. Gandhi also liked the layout of the building.
Pawan Kumar Bansal, secretary of the Society for Welfare of Handicapped, said that children with disabilities needs a lot of care and attention. Many of them are unable to do things on their own at first. This is where a therapy centre comes to the rescue. They can learn to move their muscles better. This will help them do things independently.
Officials of the Society for Welfare of Handicapped in Patiala said that the therapy centre is mainly aimed for children who have multiple disabilities.
