Rehab Day Banner
Students from the Vydehi Institute of rehabilitation came in the midst of the college ground to celebrate. There were participations from every department– School for special needs, speech, Visual Stimulation, psychotherapy and so on. I saw their bright faces filled with passion along with their loved ones.
Function started with prayer chanted by students followed by play games which allow them to practice learned skills. It was amazing to see these kids playing lemon & spoon, find and pick the toys from sand, mix and match vegetables and other athletic activities. Well, I believe these activities will bring enjoyment and improve learning abilities in them. The teachers and parents were the organizers and also participated in various other events.
After lunch, the center of attraction was at college auditorium. The kids were performing yoga, absolutely clinical.
