Braille

Braille is a series of raised dots that can be read with the fingers by people who are blind or whose eyesight is weak for reading printed material. Teachers, parents, and others who are not visually impaired ordinarily read Braille with their eyes. Braille is not a language. Rather, it is a code by which languages such as English or Spanish may be written and read.

Braille symbols are formed within units of space known as Braille cells. A full Braille cell consists of six raised dots arranged in two parallel rows each having three dots. The dot positions are identified by numbers from one through six. Sixty-four combinations are possible using one or more of these six dots. A single cell can be used to represent an alphabet letter, number, punctuation mark, or even a whole word. This Braille alphabet and numbers page illustrates what a cell looks like and how each dot is numbered.

Personality Development

Personality is defined as the enduring personal characteristics of individuals.
Personality Development is the growth and development of the thinking, perception, attitude, nature, mood, behaviour and activities that differentiate among people. It is a tool to bring out one’s abilities and powers for making himself aware of his inner self and become more confident to face the outside world. Personality means uniqueness, individuality and appearance of a person and his/her reflection of thinking, emotions, behavior, communication skills and corporeal characteristics. To make visually impaired children a well disciplined and well behaved citizen, we conduct Personality development sessions to them.

Mobility training

Orientation and mobility training is of crucial importance to many people with vision impairments. Mobility training helps to develop skills required to move around safely in the environment. Some people with vision impairments have enough residual vision to move around independently. Other people may require a mobility aid such as a long cane which will help the person to find a safe way in front of them. Training may involve advising a person with low vision on how to use their residual vision to move around more safely. It may also involve more in-depth training in how to use a mobility aid such as a white cane.

Mallakambha

Mallakhambha is an ancient traditional Indian sport. 'Malla' means gymnast, and 'khamb' means pole. Thus, the name 'Mallakhamb' stands for 'a gymnast's pole'. The apparently simple 'khamb' does not reveal the complexities of the exercises, which require the performer to turn, twist, stretch and balance on the pole. It is this consummate grace, this agility, dexterity and suppleness of body, combined with quick reflexes, muscle coordination and sense of timing, that single out this game as special.

Mallakhamb exercises make the body light and strong. These exercises are most beneficial for the stomach, back, arms and thighs, and have been found useful to achieve efficiency in a number of other games and sports like gymnastics and wrestling. The Mallakhamb sport affects the spinal chord most, which develops energy and increases longevity, and is the only exercise in which all big and small organs of the body are active.

Rope Mallakhamb

In this variation, the participant performs exercises while hanging from a rope suspended from a support. Here, a cotton rope which is 2.5 cm thick, replaces the wooden pole. The performers are expected to strike various yogic poses, without knotting the rope in any way.
