Cerebral Palsy Day & Learning Disability Awareness Month
National Cerebral Palsy Day is celebrated on October 3rd & World Cerebral Palsy Day is on 6th October. We combined three events Cerebral Palsy Day, Learning Disability Awareness Month & Daan Utsav on October 1st 2018. We had invited Manisha Bhurke of MBA Foundation who is a person with Cerebral Palsy and is a wheelchair user. She shared what is CP, how her life is affected by CP & how she has overcome the difficulties, challenges faced by the condition.
To create awareness about Learning Disability (LD), we had invited Tanya Pradhan of Mindspace. Tanya & her team have created a tool to screen kids with developmental delays, autism & learning disability in kids and how to detect them in classroom. This tool will be very useful for teachers. Therefore, we had invited few teachers to interact with Mindspace team. Many a time, the teachers in regular school are not aware as to how to spot these kids. The team briefed them about using this tool which is very interactive which uses the digital game technique.
