Praveen Kumar S
Name:
Praveen Kumar S
Age:
9
Nature of disability:
Mild Mental retardation, Vision Impaired

Background: Praveen suffers from mental retardation. He lives with his family in Bangalore. His parents were not too keen on sending him to school due to lack of accessibility, friendly environment and professional help.

APD intervention: Praveen was brought to APD by our SSP team. He was assessed and an individual education plan (IEP) was developed for him. He was taken to school where the teachers and students were made aware of his condition. A disabled friendly environment was created where the child was given equal opportunity in sports and cultural activities. Our SSP team follows up twice every week with Praveen.
