Collector P. Senthilkumar has urged the parents of differently abled children to take their children to the block level training centre regularly and get them treated.

“It is definitely possible to get them cured if proper exercises and training are given,” he asserted speaking at the special medical camp organised for the differently-abled at the Government Higher Secondary School, Senthurai.

According to an official release, pointing out that the State government had been extending various assistance to the differently abled, he observed that a “new lease of life” is a distinct possibility for the differently abled.

Besides, he wanted these children trained in such a way that they should be able to attend to all their needs by themselves. Hence, he suggested that parents should provide at home the exercise given to them at the block centres. Earlier, he handed over motor cycles costing Rs 50,000 each to three differently-abled persons, and Rs 6,000 worth tailoring machines to five persons.

At the camp, he also handed over old age pension orders for 78 persons and National Identity Card for 274 differently abled persons. Those who took part in the function included A. Karuppasamy, District Revenue Officer, and Chelladurai, District Differently abled Welfare Officer.

Parents urged to take wards to block-level training centres
