The old adage “Prevention is better than cure” has now acquired newer significance and now “Prevention is the cure.” Advancement in medicine has it that children who are likely to be affected with debilitating conditions later in their life can be spotted early through behavioral and cognitive responses. They can be given interventional treatment at the earliest stage and till they are six. Treatments such as physiotherapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy can thus be provided at an early stage. Such treatments would hopefully equip the children to join schools at the age of six. Interventional care will be continously given them until they are 15, after which they will be given vocational training and career guidance which would equip them to pursue a career and independent living. At the early intervention centers operating in areas such as Vatakara, Edacheri, and Kannur, around 400 children are given interventional treatment.
Tanal has been successful in spotting 60 percent of children who sought out early detection and in sending them to regular schools.
