The Departments of Psychology and Sociology of  Khalsa College for Women, Civil Lines,  Ludhiana contributed to the Cerebral Palsy Awareness and Management Camp organized by NGO Ashirwad NICPA  on 24th February 2023.

Sixteen volunteer students participated in the event where the diagnosis of children vulnerable to cerebral palsy was done and an insight into the effective ways to manage and include these specially-abled children was provided.

The volunteers took an active part in interacting with these children and young adults, with effective experiential learning on what cerebral palsy is and ways of effectively dealing with the same. A guest lecture was also delivered by Dr. R.S. Sodhi, Director, (Ashirwad), Dr. Vibhu J. Narad (MD, PG Dip.), Dr. Sachin Mall, (MPt). The chief guest of the event, Dr. Hatinder Kaur, Civil Surgeon, Ludhiana acknowledged the psychologically oriented inputs and interactions of Khalsa College students with the specially-abled children and thus appreciated them for their effort towards community welfare.

These volunteers came back and shared this information with their peers in the College. Informative brochures about cerebral palsy awareness and management were also circulated for inculcating the value of inclusion in the students.

The principal, KCW, appreciated the efforts of Departments of Psychology and Sociology in creating awareness among the students about Cerebral Palsy and empowering them with skills required for effective  awareness and management of children diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
