Srijan Shahi, a 7 years old male child from Kalikot,
Nepal was diagnosed with Athetoid CP and was admitted to ADC in 2075-09-10 BS.
The main concern of his parents was that he was unable to stand and walk. He
had normal crawling activities with limitation in walking and standing. Also
his hand function was impaired but he had skilful play. For him we set goals to
make him able to stand and walk for which our rehab team gave him play and
functional therapy and strength and balance training.
At the end of Asad, we reassessed him and found out
that he was able to stand independently and was able to walk with the help of
assistive device quiet easily. His parents want to continue the treatment so we
are doing our best to achieve more independent for him in future.

diagnosed as Diplegic CP. She was one of the oldest of our client. She was 2
years old when she was admitted to ADC. But she left the treatment after some
time. Again in 2075-4-26 BS she was again admitted to ADC at the age of 10
years. She had treatment in OPD basis since then. At first she was not able to
stand and walk due to problems in her muscle tone. We set goal to prevent any
joint contracture, strengthen her upper limb and lower limb, to make her able
to stand independently and to able to walk with assistive devices. For our goal
the treatment given to her were AOM exercises, play and functional therapy gait

I am Lokendra B.K, 19 years old male from Nalagadh-2,
Jajarkot, Nepal. Currently, I am a student of Bachelor of Education from Tribhuwan University, Surkhet. I am physically disabled and economically
2074-12-24, I was informed that a team of ADC is going to visit Nalagadh Municipality for
screening camp related to disability before 2, 3 days. I went at the camp site
and visited physiotherapist at the camp. At the camp I was the only one who was
more than 18 years old. ADC had criteria for free treatment was for pediatric age
group only. Furthermore physiotherapist in the camp suggested me that my
disability could not be corrected rather my lifestyle could be easier with
occupational and vocational training. The Board member of ADC offered me to
have diploma course in computer for free. Also they provided me to stay in the
hostel of ADC for free which was 1month after the camp. On Jestha, 16 2075, I came
to ADC to study for the offered subject. My economic condition was not sound
for the course that is why I was happy to have that course. Also, I managed to
study Basic English language at Surkhet. Currently I am working as a volunteer
As a disable person I have always been interested to
work in the field of disability. I have been trying to do my best and serve
various disabled child in ADC. Last but not least I would like to serve my
district Jajarkot, which is one of the rural most district of Nepal and I will always
support ADC for this kind of activities.
