PAIE - Workshop on “Improve Child’s Quality of Life with Multi Disabilities” on February 15, 2014

Dear Members,

On behalf of PAIE Executive Committee, we would like to invite you for the PAIE workshop to be held on Saturday, February 15, 2014. Details of the session are as follows:

Title:               “Improve Child’s Quality of Life with Multi Disabilities”
Why should therapists/ teachers attend?
Therapists, teachers and parents have very little knowledge of handling, associated problems, devices and teaching of the children suffering from Multi disabilities. Cerebral Palsy is part of this group. CEREBRAL PALSY is a non-progressive disorder of the brain and not a disease. It is not contagious and usually occurs due to lack of Oxygen to the brain during pregnancy, difficult childbirth and viral infections during infancy. This might result in trauma to certain parts of brain. Depending upon the part of the brain damaged, the effects can be mild, moderate or severe. This leads to various forms of problems associated that the child might experience, making it difficult for managing skills of daily life. Being ‘Physically Challenged’ does not necessarily mean that the child is also ‘Mentally’ affected. Special devices and method are applied to improve the quality of life of these children.
Details of workshop are as follows:-
