The new building for Sneha Kiran of the Mysore Spastic Society, an association dedicated to helping families of children affected with cerebral palsy, will be inaugurated here on May 28.

The new centre at Railway Colony, Bogadi, here will help Sneha Kiran expand its activities.

Therapy

The organisation, which is now in the Metagalli industrial area here, runs a daycare centre for 60 children. The children receive physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy, as well as special education.

A team of medical and paramedical professionals and special educators provide therapy, academic inputs and life-skills training to children and guidance to parents.

With the new centre, Sneha Kiran plans to cater to the needs of nearly 100 special children.

The academic year of the centre will commence this June, according to society president A. Raghunath.

Rotary International president nominee Kalyan Banerjee had laid the foundation stone for the building. Rotary Club of Mysore West is supporting the building project.

The families of children with cerebral palsy have to depute someone, mostly the father or the mother, to undergo training at Sneha Kiran so they can help those affected at home.
