THE SUCCESS STORY OF LITTLE ‘SAMAPTI’

IMG_20190422_200601One year old Samapti Bauri was referred to Udbhaas Child Development Clinic at Para from the DEIC at Para Sadar Hospital in 2017. This baby had a long SNCU stay with multiple newborn problems, following which she was not developing like a typical child.  She came to us as a ‘wobbly’ child, with no head control, unable to sit or even turn over. She was poorly responsive and did not utter a single word. She was diagnosed as ataxic cerebral palsy.

Since then we have been treating her with an interdisciplinary approach including  medication, regular physiotherapy and early intervention methods. Samapti hails from a remote village in Arsha block, approximately 100 km from our clinic, with a one way travel time of 4 hours!  Hats off to her undaunted and diligent mother, who has been regularly bringing her to us twice a month for the last 18 months, following every advice very meticulously at home too.

Today, at 3 years, Samapti can walk, run, bend and turn, with just a slight imbalance. She is a happy child who talks, plays and interacts like any other child and is also going to an ICDS preschool!

Listen to Samapti’s story from her mother on youtube.

ADDING COLOUR TO LIFE

Little did we know how enlightening and rejuvenating colours could be to the little developmentally challenged children from remote villages in Purulia.

Their disability coupled with environmental deprivation and poverty had deprived them of most enjoyments of childhood. Life was stagnated in a stale, grey pool of futility.

UDBHAAS came up with a new scheme to test the creative abilities in these challenged children, some  spastic, some with mental retardation, others  autistic. Our special educator sat with them with paper, crayons and paint and with a little motivation and support their artwork flourished! Instantaneously their eyes lit up, they simply loved the effect of colours on the canvass. As colourful pictures evolved, heavenly smiles of contentment appeared on the little faces, speaking tons of their enjoyment and sense of achievement. The ability to create something colourful was such a gratification for the kids and their parents. And for us, retrieving the hidden talents was a revelation! It was the magic moment when we could all shout  out ‘WE CAN DO IT!’
