Suruchi has Down syndrome with severe mental retardation and no speech. Her father told us about her habits and how we have to be careful about her in a group situation. Consistent vigilance and turning her attention to other activities have made her forget all the bad habits she had. She is now very obedient, sits in the class and functions when she gets one to one attention. She commutes with others by centre’s vehicle from home and goes back. For her family and to us, her development is much more than any of us expected.
