About a span of five years of prolonged campaign by parent support group TogetherWeCan which has been advocating for close monitoring and supervision of therapy centers for children with disabilities in Kerala, the High Court of Kerala has passed a comprehensive judgment regarding therapy centers for children with disabilities.

The sustained campaign for five years now has finally come to fruition. The landmark judgment will hopefully lead to similar efforts across India.

The Kerala High Court has given clear orders regarding therapy centers –

Following states the Kerala High Court- 

  1. Regulations for running therapy centers must be notified within 10 days.
  2. And model therapy centers will be established by the state government across districts that are affordable, Advocate, X accessible and appropriate. They must be marriage by competent professionals.
  3. It is must to register all the therapy centres in Kerala within a span of four ones.
  4. A sum of over Rs.3.5 crore has been allocated towards this move and the government must use this money only towards establishing therapy centers.

Seema Lal, the co-founder of TogetherWeCan, hopes this will motivate the parents of the differently-abled children to speak up for the rights due to them and their children.

This is a big step that will empower the parents of differently-abled children.
