Abstract

Harish, a 10-year-old child at our Khushboo Special School, i comes walking towards us, drawing our attention to his superman-themed mask. A child with cerebral palsy (CP) and intellectual disability, Harish, like all children, is eager to play, run and make conversations despite his lack of verbal skills. He shows patience as he waits for his turn. He even cheers his friends from the sidelines. Quick wins, high-fives and verbal praise motivate him to continue doing activities and not give up. This child, who used to be very quiet, had limited social interactions and needed physical support can today not only perform activities confidently but if asked to demonstrate instructions to his peers, does not shy away.
