Neha's smile: a ray of hope!
SPEECH & FUNCTIONAL THERAPY
CLEFT LIP & PALATE
This is the story of a cute little girl 'Neha’ born with a cleft. Thanks to our generous donors who supported Neha's lip surgery. Now, she can smile like others and looks beautiful too.
However, this was not an easy go for the family. Salma, Neha's mother had to face insurmountable odds to get her daughter treated and look normal. Due to the stereotyped belief regarding clefts, Salma was blamed for her child's deformity.
At the time of pregnancy vitamin deficiency can affect the child causing facial malformations, under nourished mother and malnourished children are our main focus in this programme.
Providing awareness & education about the cleft and facial deformities and its causes, prevention and solutions through conducting medical camps in the rural backward areas.
Speech and Functional therapy can be extremely effective for children with mild hypernasality, an articulation disorder, or speech delay. The goal of speech therapy will be to develop good speech habits as well as to learn how to produce sounds correctly.
Every child's first visit to us starts with a comprehensive care. We take the time to evaluate the unique facial and dental challenges that may be lurking, so that a custom program of treatment can be created.
At our project centres, every child gets the attention he or she needs, to bring out their best smile in order to lead a normal life.
