These screening results would be utilised in early identification of children with disability. The session was concluded by a note from Dr. Shashi Kumar that “these symptoms can be temporary” which states that the result will not completely depend on the results of the screening tool but will be further tested clinically and results obtained by the teachers will help the parents for early identification and treatment of the disability. Screening sheets were provided to each class teacher from grade 1-5. It was indeed an informative session.
