Developmentally challenged children are the last to get proper medical service, because they are unable to express their needs and the family has very little hope of respite for the challenged one. More often than not, they are left to their lot and the problem goes from bad to worse. The scenario is most bleak among the rural community, where health care resources are limited. Developmental challenges in children are there in plenty, but go largely unattended.

UDBHAAS had the privilege to step into such a deprived zone and has had a very revealing experience working with these at-risk babies.

We took up a project, in collaboration with UNICEF in the remote district of Purulia, West Bengal, in October ’12, where we identified all the babies who had been discharged from the SNCU (Special Neonatal Care Unit) at the district hospital over the last 30 months. That gave us a cohort of vulnerable babies, prone to become developmentally challenged. These babies hailed from every nook & corner of the district, including the remote, hilly, almost inaccessible pockets. With the help of a group of local boys we managed to identify and motivate these families to come for a follow-up check-up for neuro-developmental assessment (an assured, fully sponsored trip to the town!). The turn-over was overwhelming with 450 babies aged 1-30 months, whom we assessed and screened for developmental delay over a period of 4 days at a stretch. The results were quite alarming… almost 30% of the kids showed evidence of developmental delay. We started early intervention therapy and advised home-based management. We have been following them up regularly every month and the silver lining is that parents are showing adherence to the therapy programs and children are showing definite improvement.

Another engaging activity has been our educational program, which reached out to multiple stakeholders in the field. We organised:

  • An audio-visual, multi-faceted awareness program for parents, grass-root health workers and college students
  • A 3 day training program for public health nursing personnel & ICDS supervisors from all across the district
  • A 2 day comprehensive training program for all Block level doctors, neonatologists, Paediatricians and neonatal nursing personnel.

Thus we were able to spread the message of detection & management of Developmental challenges in children and highlight on the importance of developmental assessment, to a large section of the population concerned with child health care. The acceptance, interest and enthusiasm at all levels has been most encouraging for the Udbhaas team. We dream to see Purulia wake up to the needs of her developmentally challenged children.
