*    L.V – Low Vision, V.I – Visually Impaired, H.I – Hearing Impaired, O.H-Orthopeadically Handicapped,
M.R- Mentally Retarded, C.P-Cerebral Palsy & Others – Other Disabilities.

THERAPY CENTERS
Disabled children who are in need of therapy were identified in remote villages. Parents of these children face financial constraints and commutation problems and hence are not able to take these children to the town to receive therapy. In order to help such children with therapy and training, CRCS started four therapy centres in Kalikanaickenpalayam, Madampatti, B.K. Pudur and Madukkarai. In these centres we make it a priority that the parents involve themselves in the rehabilitation of the child. Parental involvement has truly proved worthy in training these children.
