They were already struggling with other issues of the pandemic at home, they were aghast and most hesitant to take up this add on load; counselling & motivating them on the importance of continued practice for their wards, helped them to agree for a trial !!
Lack of equipment like mobiles, computers (laptops) was also an issue, which could be solved through some donations, for deserving trainees.
Using Mobiles, positioning them during the classes, catching an attention of the youngsters with such a small device, etc., etc., were endless … added to these were the suitable timing for the parents to sit for the classes. Teachers did work out the plans for different groups for Functional education, skills training & therapy.
Once these fell into place, planning of activities / skills fell into place. Now, more or less, they have learnt to accept the situation, but our beneficiaries are longing to be at the centre, live, with their friends & teachers.. All said, they & we too, missed the vibrations in the class rooms.
