Transpact is associated with POSAT for three years now. Located amidst the western suburbs of Mumbai, POSAT (Physio Occupational Speech Academy of Therapist) is the brainchild of Dr Chhabria. He always wished to keep POSAT’s rehabilitation professionals at par with their western counterparts and that too in an era where internet and google were unheard of. With this vision, POSAT was founded in 1978 to offer a common platform for rehabilitation professionals to share their knowledge and complement each other in the treatment of the patients.
POSAT runs educational classes for special children at Rustomjee International School, Dahisar(west ) and S.V.P. School in Kandivali(west).At present 120 children are enrolled in these special classes receiving all the facilities that a normal school would provide. The children studying in POSAT suffer various disabilities and dysfunctions namely Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Hearing Impairment, Learning Problems, Hyperactivity and so on.
Diwali is one of the main festivals in our country, India. Every nook and corner of the houses, shops and offices are decorated with lamps, flowers and other ornamental items. When we talk about these decorative Diwali items, our little POSATIAN munchkins weren’t far to make our Diwali shine. These children hold exceptional skills in making different and colourful Torans (Hangings for walls), beautiful Floating Candles , Acrylic Rangolis, Envelopes with unique design work, Malas for pictures or posters and Diya’s. These ornamental articles are a beautiful manifestation of their hard work and effort to transcend the impact of disability on their lives.
Here are some pictures from their collection of decorative items.
