Early intervention has a significant impact for children who have delayed development in physical, cognitive, emotional, sensory, behavioural, social and communication domains and can live a meaningful life integrated into their own communities. With quality early intervention services children can live a meaningful life.
Amar Seva Sangam has provided home-based Early Intervention for children with developmental delays over the past 5 years assisted by a real-time mobile technology platform called the mVBRI – mobile village-based rehabilitation initiative. This has led to significant improvements in motor, cognitive, speech, functional and social development outcomes for children, as well as increased school enrollment, increased family empowerment, improved parent-child interaction and reduced strain on caregivers.
In India the incidence of infant mortality is decreasing while the incidence of non-communicable diseases is increasing as a major cause of disability, according to Kumar, Roy & Kar – 2011. Moreover, according to UNESCO UIS and UNICEF, “Disability is a major barrier to access to education in India, more than 2.9 million children living with a disability.”
This is not only an Indian issue, but is a global phenomenon and there is an urgent need to address the issue for overall well-being of humanity. It is in this context that the International Conference on Early Intervention in Chennai is being organized.
Amar Seva Sangam is raising funds through Mumbai Marathon 2020, in partnership with Unitedway Mumbai. We have been associated with Tata Mumbai Marathon for many years now which has led to our improved and efficient services to differently abled persons of our country especially the children who are the future architects of India. Our goal is no children should be left out of schooling and skill development because of disability as education and Vocational training are the key for the Empowerment of persons with disabilities to lead a dignified and successful life. "Disability is only a condition which can be managed and should not become a constraint for their development".
