Lahari is a mild mentally retarted child.Her I.Q. is 68.Her parents were not aware of her disability through any source. When she was 6 1/2 years old, she had seizers, her parents took her to NIMHANS, Banglore for treatment.

The doctors diagonised her as a mild mentally-retarted child. They further told them that as she was almost 7 years old she could learn only one skill i.e. toileting. Her chances of learning other skills essential to lead her life were scarce. Speech therapy was the only skill to be tried. Even this was also difficult at that age.

But her parents were not discouraged. They did not waste even a day. At once, her mother got trained, at Hyderabad a course named "Parent + Teacher" training. Her parents became aware there were many parents who were gifted with such children and they didn't have any understanding of the disease and therapies to remedy the disability were unable to join their children in regular school. Nor did they in "Special Schools'. Lahari's parents came to know this. If they learnt that Lahari needed those threapies below 3 years of old they would not have waited and wasted the precious time. They would have got her all those therapies which should have helped her to be at the Boarder line stage.

Though they can't lessen their anguish entierly, they have understood that the severity can be subduced.

For this the services of Qualified therapists are required.Urged by this with a Great person's support they came forward to start Lahari rehabilitation centre whera such therapies are available.

Their earnest request to parents is to let their children have the therapies if they are a must. It will help their children to be independent and confident.

Now, Lahari is able to speak well. She can tell stories and sing songs. She can question. She has a clear understanding of simple multiplication upto 6th table in special education. She knows the time and money concept. Aware of shopping skills. She herself can attend her daily activities. She can talk over telephone. Not only that. She can do some computer applications.

She is learning swimming. She has got 5 gold medals and I silver medal in the art competition conducted for special children.

OUR APPEAL TO PARENTS : Don't get detered. Try every source. Ignore the limitations.

Had they not tried for every available source (therapy) to shape herself their Lahari, she could have learnt nothing. As the Professionals said, providing training is very important.

Let us erase the limitations and surmount the handicaps. Lahari is a living example of what best can be done for these children. Keep their experience in mind think and spring into action.
