Training & Rehabilitation Activities

Shanthiniketan, a Residential Institution for mentally handicapped has organised a total of two training programmes for the benefit of parents of children with mental retardation with multiple disability and another for parents of children with mental retardation with sensory impairments. The training and rehabilitation activities at Shanthiniketan came into being during the year 1990. This is mainly due to the continuous and untiring interest shown by our Management to recruit professional staff to meet the present day challenges in the field of the development of mentally handicapped children and also to elevate the status of our organisation.

Shanthiniketan is a NGO working for mentally disabled, mentally handicapped, Residential, and giving Vocational training located at Vanasthalipuram, Hyderabad, Telangana, India. 

 

(i) Multiple Disability with Mental Retardation.

Some of the children having mental retardation will also be having some additional problems like hearing impairment, and physical impairment, visual impairment. Special attention is given to such children by a team of multidisciplinary team of professionals who extend their services when asked for. These orthopedic services are available at our institution on every Thursday of the week.

 

(ii) Mental Retardation and Sensory Impairments

Children with mental retardation along with impairments in vision/hearing usually require some special education in addition to the group training. As these senses (sense of touch, smell etc.,) are impaired to eradicate them usually require some adaptations. Keeping this aspect in view, some exclusive services for such children have been started at our institute. Children get one-to-one attention from those special and trained teachers in addition to the classroom experience and intensive training. Some environmental modifications have to be affected to meet their specific needs.
