Occupational unit

Sensory integration which is one of the most important aspects for the child with multiple disabilities is looked into by the occupational therapy unit in the OLS. It basically deals with sensory development, fine motor, ADL and functional aspects of the children. The unit gives ADL training to the children based on her/ his physical condition and their requirement. If even after a long period of therapy, it is not possible to bring their muscles and joints into normal functioning then provisions are made for adoption and assistive devices to help the child perform his daily living activities comfortably. After initial assessment the goals are planned depending upon the condition of the child and the child is assessed at regular intervals to check the improvement. Other factors determining the goal include the severity of the problem which is worked out by the special educators.
