    Hiral Ajugya - Low Vision

    In our life we all want to be in a place with peace, comfort, stress-free, and a successful life. But is it possible with everyone? All of us complain about what we don’t have, but on the other hand, we sometimes escape what we have!

    Yes, likewise Hiral thought about life. 22 years old Hiral was in an incubator right after birth and faced scissors and also had a fever and under all this procedure she was left with one eye vision with low visibility. Parents were disturbed, because the child for whom they prayed was born but with disability. Disturbing but nonetheless, when Hiral’s little finger held her mother's hand, Jigishaben held her tightly and accepted her the way she was born.

    Hiral started growing; she was about to start school, but rejected her to get admission in the school and even told by many authorities to not put much effort on her schooling. But her mother’s determination not only helped her to complete her schooling....

    She grew older, seeing her parents struggling for her to have a good life and started thinking, why is life not easy? Why am I like this? How can I help my parents?

    After completing her graduation, she was focused on getting a job. She had given interview one’s, she passed the first round but all and sundry is seeing her like why she was here? She ignored them and focused on giving interviews. Continuous rejection shattered her and even she refused to choose Sarthak’s training but a detailed interaction with the help desk staff cleared her doubts.

    She enrolled herself for training for a three months course and put her 100% efforts into equipping herself with employability skills and the rest was a very blissful journey. Now she is working at Saarathee CRM private Ltd as a Customer Care Executive designation, with a monthly income of Rs. 10,500/- She is very happy as she got work from home opportunity.

    She feels overwhelmed by Sarthak as she got the support of placement and now she is supporting her family financially; it was the biggest dream for her and which is accomplished. She is truly thankful to the Sarthak Team for helping Pwds with placement and making them empowered and also motivating us to live our life with respect and dignity.

    Harsimran - Intellectual Disability

    When Harsimran was 4-years of age, his father expressed his concern towards his inappropriate behavior and posture to his family. The family agreed on the fact that his hand always bend towards his mouth and always mold to the chest, maybe his backbone muscles are still not so strong which is causing an inappropriate posture in harsimaran’s body.

    The other matter of worry was that he also doesn’t talk or speak like other kids of his age. Earlier, they thought harsimaran is a reserved kid and doesn’t like talking to people.

    Also, his aggressive behavior was taken as a sign of their excessive care & protective nature that spoilt him and he now doesn’t follow any instructions and hits people if they try to speak to him.

    However, this continued and later on when the condition was out of control as harsimaran’s behavior problems were on peak, he started hitting & biting others, drooled a lot, and felt very uncomfortable with even the children of his own age. ... Living in a nuclear family, his parents did not understand the cues initially, and even when they realized that there is an issue, they did not have the appropriate guidance. Eventually, they stopped making him meet new people and spent time with parents mostly, they tried comforting him by various things such as involving him in household tasks and taking him to gurudwaaras.

    Their efforts were in vain, Thus, At the age of 5 year his father took him for medical consultation and a psychologist. What the Psychologist said was something they were wanting to avoid accepting since the beginning that this not just a temporary behavior pattern but their son was diagnosed with Intellectual Disability.

    They had no other option but to accept & move ahead. Parents decided to take Harsimran for suggested therapies from a nearby place but even after a few months they did not find any visible changes in harsimaran’s condition. He was still lost in his own world didn’t want to connect with the people. And also had same rigid behaviour of not doing things, not listening to his parents.

    The therapy was not working for him and his parents were utterly disappointed and stressed. He was in the age to start his education now but his parents were tensed about the behavior and did not want to leave him alone for this long in school.

    One day, Sarthak mobilization team contacted the family, they were called to the nearest center and the therapist took detailed case history after which they suggested speech therapy, Special Education and occupational therapy sessions. Parental counselling was done to make them understand more about the condition. so, they are aware about the suffering Harsimran goes through himself and because parenting is the most important part of any therapy. His parents gradually started to connect with him and now understand what their child needs and how some more attention would make him feel better and not spoilt. It was tough but they have to deal with the child very patiently.

    Before associating with Sarthak, Harsimaran had difficulty in holding things, at his very first visit to Sarthak he cried a lot. “Because of his not want to do anything’ attitude led to difficulty in interaction with the EI team.

    At the center, he cried almost 30 minutes at every visit and started throwing things whatever he got in hand he just threw that very hard on the floor or the wall. On the other hand, he drooled a lot at the duration of 30-minute session he made himself all wet by his drooling.

    Also, whenever therapist tried to connect with harsimran he used to bite them, the condition was very crucial and took a lot of efforts. by each and every therapist. As he denied sitting at a place, Behavior therapies were started before occupational one which would then work on his posture.

    Finally, after months of patience, Now, harsimaran sits at a place and takes interest doing activities with other children. Occupational therapist work on his posture now he does not put his hand in the mouth. After doing Oro facial massage & speech therapy, he has improved a lot.

    The special educator works on his writing skills and the very first stage of writing- he now enjoys

    Gouri - Down Syndrome

    Gouri, now 5 years old, was born with Polyhydromnios (where excessive amniotic fluid is accumulated in the uterus) and Meconium Aspiration Syndrome (where a new-born breathes a mixture of meconium and amniotic fluid into the lungs at the time of delivery). Her mother shared that Gouri’s birth cry was delayed by 5 minutes and collectively, all these complications led her to suffer respiratory distress because of which she was kept in the ventilator for 5 days.

    She comes from a lower-middle-class family and her family comprises of 4 members. Her father is employed in a private job, her mother is a housewife and she also has a 3 years old brother.Her parents were unaware of all the issues she might have in future and nor did the doctor inform them. It was only after her development ... milestones delayed and she faced feeding difficulty at the age of 6 months when her parents consulted a Pediatrician. It was that time when Gouri was diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

    Even though Gouri has two close relatives with disabilities, her diagnosis still came as a surprise to her parents because none of their relatives had history of Down Syndrome.

    As she was growing up, her parents also identified how her tongue movement was sluggish, she faced difficulty in chewing and could not adhere to simple commands made by the elders. Out of consciousness, her parents consulted doctors who gave her medications and advised therapeutic management. They started her therapy in private clinics but their lower socio-economic background could not sustain the costs of therapy for long and eventually, her therapy sessions were put on hold.

    6 months ago, while the parents were still struggling with the child; Sarthak’s Early Intervention Team contacted them. Since they stay outside Delhi, they were unable to visit Sarthak’s Early Intervention Center but they were counselled over phone and video calls regarding Down Syndrome and its intervention process. The provision of free-of-cost online therapy sessions and home-based sessions really interested the parents and they enrolled Gouri in it right away.

    Under our Early Intervention Program, she was provided regular occupational therapy, speech therapy and special education services. Her speech therapy was focused on oromotor exercises, vocabulary building and socialization; occupation therapy was focused on hand functioning and motor functioning and special education sessions were focused on scribbling, coloring, alphabet writing. Collectively, all these sessions showed a drastic improvement in her everyday performance.

    Both her parents and Sarthak’s team are relieved and happy to see her improvement. Over time, her mother has also become very participative in therapy techniques at home and continues to support her in improving her learning abilities and academic growth.

    Aarish - Hearing Impairment

    At his very first visit to Sarthak, Aarish cried a lot.He was a very hyperactive child who didn’t want to sit at a place, kept running and jumping here and there. He even started shouting when therapist tried to interact with him.

    Rewind back to 2019, At the age of 3-years, Aarish’s father expressed his concern towards Aarish’s delayed speech. They thought that since some children speak a little late, it is very normal and we should wait. However, when Aarish turned 3, his father observed that Aarish has some hearing issues also. And maybe that is why he is not able to speak. When discussed with the family, it was also noticed that they have observed some behaviour differences in him like he was not maintaining eye contact, not sitting properly at a place and unable to concentrate. He was not able to connect with people. His behavior and developmental milestones were different from other kids of his age. ...

    His lack of social attention turned Aarish’s Father attention towards some issue that needs to be treated and he got really tensed. For a long time, his father was not aware of any of the issues, but once realized, he consulted an ENT specialist. He thought that Aarish had some hearing issues but the reports were normal there was no certain issues reported for his hearing impairment. Later on, by a relative, he was asked to consult child psychologist. He did not believe what turned out to be truth in the diagnosis. It was a term that he never heard of.

    Aarish was diagnosed with - Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). His father was not aware about this condition among children and almost panicked as any parent would do.

    Of course, with ASD, Aarish couldn’t learn to speak his first words which was not because of hearing issues as his father thought. In ASD, children have delayed speech issue because their emotional intelligence is affected and also they are socially distracted that’s why they start ignoring the world around them and do not connect to people by speech and don’t create vocabulary in their minds which leads to no speech among the children.

    Also, their major concern is hyperactivity that leads to aggressiveness and restlessness in Aarish’s behavior The psychologist advised his family to get his therapies sessions as therapy is the only way to divert him towards a fruitful outcome. Another concern was that, when other kids of his age started going to their classes and play schools,

    Aarish's family couldn’t get him admitted to school because they thought Aarish won’t be comfortable in the regular mainstream schools. One day, Sarthak mobilization team contacted the family, they were called to the nearest center where the therapist took his detailed case history.

    Deepali Pawar - VI

    God helps those, who help themselves, you must have heard it several times since childhood. The fact perfectly suits our diligent candidate- Deepali.

    Deepali Pawar, a young girl with positive attitude and smile belongs to a lower middle-class family. Her Father is a shopkeeper where he sells Veneration material. She has 2 elder brothers also who are currently studying & working along with it. Deepali loves reading technology stuff on the internet. She is graduate in Arts stream and has also done D-Ed from Nashik. Till the age of 17, she was a bubbly girl, enjoying her life like any other student would.

    However, Fate had decided a challenge to affect her. During her first year B.A. Diwali vacation she got fever post which she started feeling weak, was unable to perform even the small tasks at home and had to rest all day. She also felt a strain in eyes while reading or watching television or phone. After consulting ...a family doctor, she was suggested to get her eye-sight checked and wear spectacles accordingly. As she started wearing specs, she faced headache and irritation. As they were not comfortable for her, she discontinued using them. But her vision was still weak than before and she had to do something about it. Her family tried to help her out by taking her to specialists suggested by their knowns.

    Regardless of multiple visits in to hospital for the treatment, her health was going in to critical condition continuously. Eventually, the doctor did her CT scan and then, to their surprise Deepali’s eye-sight issue turned out to be Brain Tuberculomas. Doctor informed the family, that some of her brain nerves were blocked. They immediately started her treatment in Sayadri Hospital at Nashik Maharashtra and somehow, they were successful in saving her life. She came back to home after the required stay at the hospital. Even though slowly her health condition improved overall, Unfortunately her vision was deeply affected by the condition, making her slowly lose her vision of both the eyes.

    The main reason of her blindness was no blood circulation in her optic nerves. Her parents took her to many doctors for her eye treatment. But, there wasn’t any positive result at all. It was really hard to accept that their young daughter who was studying hard has to lead a completely different life now.

    Gradually, Deepali and her family members accepted the condition and started giving her every possible support. Because of her health issues and sudden blindness her life drastically changed. She couldn’t continue her graduation studies and had to take a long gap. One day, her father read an article in Maharashtra times newspaper about career counselling seminar in National Association for the Blind (NAB) Mumbai. Without any delay he took Deepali to NAB centre where she met people who helped her with the options that were not known to her before.

    She did D-ed and learned braille and typing in computer. Soon, she also completed basic computer training from training Institute of India (TTI) Pune became skilled computer user.

    One of the Sarthak alumni and her friend Pallavi from Solapur Maharashtra suggested her about Sarthak 3 months training program which will work on her soft skills as well and will provide good placement opportunity. The idea seemed worth trying as the training would be completed in just 3-months, that too free of cost. She soon registered her name for the Sarthak Job Entrepreneurship training course attended all classes regularly. She enhanced her English Communication and computer skills with the help of the skill development course. Thanks to her confidence & positive attitude, soon after the training she got a BPO processing work from home employment opportunity in Saaradhee. Currently she is continuing the same job and supporting her family as well. She wants to develop her career in the same sector and wants to become successful & independent person in life.
