Rehabilitating, Mainstreaming Inspiring To Go Beyond

Afsheen Parveen

Afsheen is a 3 years old child who was diagnosed as CP Spastic Diplegia at GRIRR in 2018. She is the only child of Nafisul Hasan and Kulsum tabassum. In the beginning, her parents were so depressed because they were not aware of any disability condition, even the mother never accepted that she had a disability called Cerebral palsy. As per her mother Afsheen prayed that some days after she will be fine as other children.

Parents were taking treatment from a Private Hospital. They got to know about GRIRR in 2018 from one of the beneficiaries. Afsheen was not able to sit without support and she used to lie all the time at home. Her parents & family are very supportive. After the assessment we plan IRP Goal, she comes for physiotherapy regularly as well as we taught them some home based therapy. In the Month of April 2018 we provided her Corner seat , asked them to use regularly.

The present status : she is able to sit without support for 5 to 6 mins
under supervision. And slowly parents are accepting her disability
after seeing the change in conditions at GRIRR and they are very positive to her condition.
Parents want to admit her in School as soon as she starts sitting without support.
