Karam Singh is a 10 yrs old student of 4th class suffering from multiple disabilities (Cerebral Palsy with Mental Retardation) and associated low vision problem. He came in contact with Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan when he was identified by the IERT/ IEV during survey of 2011. His parents had expired when he was just a 6 yrs old. The IEV of cluster Multipurpose of Block Patiala 2 approached him in July 2011 after summer vacations. Before joining the Resource Room, the child was just bed-ridden. In the Resource Room, the Resource teacher and Volunteer put a lot of labour to improve his physique. He was provided a tricycle and elbow crutches from IE under SSA. In few months, a huge improvement was seen in his physical as well as mental status.
He learnt in the Resource Room environment in a very friendly and effective manner as a result of which he was directly mainstreamed in 3rd class at GPS Multipurpose School, and the teachers promoted him to the 4th class through bridge course.
Now with the help of crutches and tricycle, he moves independently and can come to school on his own. He participated in the District Sports Meet and got 2nd position in 50 Mtrs race. He is interested in extra-curricular activities and cultural programs also.
