For the last 16 years, Swayam Rehabilitation Centre has been working for the rehabilitation of Divyang children besides helping the parents of children with multi-disability in every possible way keeping in mind the physical, mental and financial burden they have to face from time to time. Chief Minister Mr Eknathji Shinde celebrated his birthday with the children of Swayam. On this occasion, the Chief Minister released a book named “Bharari Atmavishwasachi” (A Guide to Home Rehabilitation and Therapy for Children with multiple disabilities) along with 5 DVDs. The Book is a compilation of various Home-based therapies, articles by experts in the field, along with 5 DVDs about i) Stress Management, ii) Yoga and How to relieve Stress, iii) My Child and his sensitivities, iv) How to handle my child, and v) Speech and hearing issues and how to take care of children with various disabilities, and their upbringing. Besides this, the DVDs also have comprehensive guidance sessions on easy home exercises and required equipment for such children; and Counselling and Yoga for parents by experts and doctors. On this occasion, the Chief Minister while congratulating Swayam for its efforts also came some valuable advice. He said, “Handling Divyang children is not easy and hence, this is a big challenge in front of parents of such children. In such situations, Swayam has come to the rescue of many children and parents. Our society needs many more such organisations. It has become the need of the hour now as hundreds of parents can benefit from this and I will always stand by for such organisations firmly- like a family member.” Later, he shared cake with all children and distributed school stationery and snacks. Swayam gave their best wishes and greeted the Chief Minister on his birthday.
