Lalit Bahuviklang Nivasi Paathshaala and Day care center (For the children with mental retardation and multiple disabilities)

The words of Monaben Jaiminbhai Maniar

My daughter, Mahek was born  as a pre mature child in the seventh month. Due to oxygen toxicity (excessive supply of oxygen given by doctor),

she suffered from R.O.P. ( Retinopathy of Prematurity). She lost her vision, speech and many other problems happened to her.

Till the age of 15, she slept in a cradle only;  She used to drink water or milk through a bottle only; She 

used to take food in liquid form only. She slept for 3-4 hours during night that too with medications. She never held anything by her own hand, she walked very little in the house, and could only walk few 

steps with someone's help outside the house.

I, her mother ( Mona), her father ( Jaimin) and two and a half years elder sister Foram used to 

remain awake turn by turn at night to take care of Mahek. 

We visited several institutes for her training and development but could not get much benefit.

Since last one year we enrolled Mahek to Blind welfare council, Dahod managed “Lalit Bahuviklang 

nivashi shala”. In just one year, due to the dedicated special teachers and all staff members, their support,

care and up to date training has given great results. It is just like a miracle in our life.

In just one year she has started to hold a glass and cup by her own and tries to drink water and tea by herself. She tries to walk independently. She sleeps on her own bed, she has forgotten the cradle 

totally. In the school, she does all her activities of the class very happily from morning 11 to evening 4'O clock.

With the help of the hostel staff members, she is wonderfully doing all her daily activities in hostel as well like use of bathroom, toilet, taking bath, 

dressing up, getting ready, going for breakfast, timely lunch and dinner etc.

She takes part in all activities in the school.

When she comes home during vacation, she remains very happy, she plays and enjoys a lot with her elder sister. After the vacation ends, she goes back to the school without crying.

After 16 years of very hard life with Mahek, we felt that God has sent this angel Mr Yusufi Kapadiya at our house. He has helped us by all means for the training and development of our daughter Mahek, We are very thankful to him and all team members of Blind welfare council Dahod.

The Multiple disabled residential school run by BWC Dahod is first of its kind in Gujarat. At present there are 73 children with multiple disabilities out of which 54 are boys and 19 are girls. They stay in the hostel and get systematic training and education. The development is slow but constant. The number of teachers provided by the Government is few, but the Trust has appointed adequate number of teachers at its own cost and is trying to provide best services to the children.

We also have Day care center for children with mental retardation and multiple disabilities. Here in we have 27 boys and 17 girls with the total of 44 such children who are imparted training and education during the day. The children go back to home in the evening. Our teachers work very hard for the all round development of these children. We also have trained teachers who work in the villages as well. These teachers cover almost all the Talukas of Dahod and the Panchmahal districts.
