- An outlook on Specific Learning Disability
If your child struggles with listening, speaking, reading, writing, spelling, or math, take a note of the specific issues you see. These can be the signs of Specific Learning Disability (SLD). Your child might be weak in some specific subject areas like reading, writing or Maths. This can be the result of SLD whereby a student has significant difficulty in one academic area while coping well, or even excelling, in other areas of academic, sporting or artistic achievement. A specific learning disability is a disorder that interferes with a student’s ability to listen, think, speak, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations. Students with a specific learning disability may struggle with Reading (Dyslexia) Writing (Dysgraphia) Math (Dyscalculia) or Co-ordination- (Dyspraxia) And many others Learning disorders, if not recognized and managed, can cause problems throughout a person’s life. These problems include increased risk of greater psychological distress, poorer mental health, dropping out of school and unemployment. There are around 13 to 14 per cent of all school children suffering from special learning disorders In India. SIGNS OF SPECIFIC LEARNING DISABILITIES Difficulty reading Difficulty understanding the meaning of what is read Difficulty with spelling Difficulty understanding number concepts & calculation Difficulty with mathematical reasoning It is not certain why & how SLD is caused, but the reasons could be hereditary, complications during pregnancy, consumption of alcohol, smoking during pregnancy or some severe accident or injury. The sooner your child’s learning issue is identified, the sooner you can arrange for the proper interventions. Though it is believed there is no cure for learning disorders but early intervention can reduce the effect & can develop ways to cope up with these disabilities. As a parent, you should be cautious about treatments that are promoted as a cure for learning disabilities. Many medical interventions are unproven, ineffective and are extremely costly with no independent research. The Model Centre of Children with Special Needs (MCCWSN) is a response of Margdarsi to find solution for Childhood disorders that cause disability. Our experts help building on the child’s strengths and finding ways to compensate for the child’s weaknesses. Our interventions vary depending on the nature and extent of the disability. We provide the least restrictive environment to a child for appropriate results. This means the teaching environment meets a child’s needs and skills while minimizing restrictions to typical learning experiences. MCCWSN provides varieties of rehabilitation therapies to reduce the SLD effects. These include: Occupational Therapy- It helps the children suffering from Dysgraphia (those who have trouble using their hands) & also with sensory processing issues. Our occupational therapists work with the children to practice physical skill that makes them move confidently & creatively. Educational Therapy- Our educational therapists are more than just tutors. The teaching modules are built to work with & around the child’s learning issues. Speech Therapy- Helps the children with dyspraxia (Language- based issues). Our speech therapist work closely with the children who have difficulties in communicating & understanding what they hear. Our Social Skill Group- We help the children with behavioral issues & teach them how to start conversation & control their emotions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)- It is very effective way of coping with the effects of anxiety & depression in the children who are very impulsive. The overall treatment by our well qualified professionals is primarily focused on eliminating the results & signs of Learning Disorders. As a parent, you know your child best, and it’s up to you to get the evaluation process in motion. Early the intervention, better the results.

- How can we help you out from hearing loss ?
Imagine being cut off from communication with your loved ones. Conversations happen around you but you can’t really participate. It becomes easier to stay at home because it is too frustrating to try and hear what your friends are saying. Hearing loss is a common problem caused by noise, aging, disease, and heredity. As you age, you experience a number of changes in the way your body functions. Hearing Loss might be one of these changes. Age-related hearing loss (Presbycusis) is the loss of hearing that gradually occurs in most of us as we grow older. Almost 1 in 2 adults over age 65 experience some degree of hearing loss. Although age-related hearing loss is not a life-threatening condition, it can have a significant impact on your quality of life, if left untreated. Problems that stem from hearing loss in the elderly include: Depression Withdrawal from social life Loneliness Anger Decreased personal safety Cognitive decline Poor health Generally, Hearing loss is caused by physical changes in the ear, the auditory nerve, or in the ability of your brain to process sound. But age related hearing loss is generally caused due to: Changes in the structures of the inner ear Changes in blood flow to the ear Diabetes Use of certain medications Family history of hearing loss Impairment in the nerves responsible for hearing Changes in the way that the brain processes speech and sound Damage to the tiny hairs in the ear, responsible for transmitting sound to the brain Exposure to loud noises Smoking Older people who can’t hear well may become depressed, or they may withdraw from others because they feel frustrated or embarrassed about not understanding what is being said. Sometimes, older people are mistakenly thought to be confused, unresponsive, or uncooperative because they don’t hear well. Symptoms of age-related hearing loss typically begin with an inability to hear high-pitched sounds. Other symptoms that may occur include: Certain sounds seeming overly loud Difficulty hearing in areas that are noisy Difficulty hearing the difference between “s” and “th” sounds ringing in the ears turning up the volume on the television or radio louder than normal asking people to repeat themselves being unable to understand conversations over the telephone If you are diagnosed with Age Induced Hearing Loss, Margadarsi will work with you to improve your hearing and quality of life through Hearing aids to help you hear better- Hearing Aids are electronic instruments you wear in or behind your ear. They make sounds louder. To find the hearing aid that works best for you, you may have to try more than one. Examples like- Behind The Ear (BTE), Mini BTE, In-The-Ear (ITE), In-The-canal (ITC), Completely-In-Canal (CIC) Cochlear Implant– Cochlear implants are small electronic devices surgically implanted in the inner ear that help provide a sense of sound to people who are profoundly deaf or hard-of-hearing. Hearing loss can’t be reversed, but further damage can be stopped with some simple lifestyle adjustments such as Avoid repetitive exposure to loud sounds. Wear ear protection in places where there are loud sounds. Control your blood sugar if you have diabetes. Seek prompt help from your doctor if you develop symptoms of age-related hearing loss. As your hearing loss increases, you’re more likely to lose your ability to understand speech. However, you may keep this ability, or minimize the loss, if you seek early treatment.

Internal Complaint Cell Institute of Health Sciences, Bhubaneswar has constituted the “Internal Complaint Committee (Gender Sensitization Cell and Committee for Prevention of Sexual Harassment) Sexual harassment injects the most demeaning sexual stereotypes into the general work environment and always represents an intentional assault on a person’s innermost privacy. Read Guidelines Back to Home Internal Complaints Cell Members for the year 2019-20 Dr. Priyadarshini Mishra Ms. Kriti Boral Ms. Ritika Singh Mrs. Manini Dash Ms. Santoshini Das Mrs. Rita jena Ms. Auroshikha Sahoo Ms. Shilpa Soni Ms. Lipsa Debata Internal Complaint Committee (Gender Sensitization Cell and Committee for Prevention of Sexual Harassment) Institute of Health Sciences, Bhubaneswar has constituted the “Internal Complaint Committee (Gender Sensitization Cell and Committee for Prevention of Sexual Harassment) Sexual harassment injects the most demeaning sexual stereotypes into the general work environment and always represents an intentional assault on a person’s innermost privacy. What is Sexual Harassment? According the Supreme Court order, sexual harassment is any unwelcome words or actions of sexual nature as: Physical contact and advances Demand or request for sexual favours Sexually coloured remarks Display of pornography Any other unwelcome physical, verbal and non-verbal conduct of a sexual nature. Persuent to Supreme Court guidelines, Institute of Health Sciences is committed to a workplace free of Sexual Harassment and has adopted a policy for prevention of sexual harassment at workplace and established the Internal Complaint Committee. Functions of the Cell The office of the Cell is an educational resource as well as a complaint centre for the members of the faculty, staff and students of the University. Its mandate is : To provide a neutral, confidential and supportive environment for members of the campus community who may have been sexually harassed; To advice complainants of the informal and formal means of resolution as specified by the Cell; To ensure the fair and timely resolution of sexual harassment complaints; To provide information regarding counselling and support services on our campus To ensure that students, faculty and staff are provided with current and comprehensive materials on sexual harassment and assault; Handbook on Sexual Harasssment of Woman at Workplace To promote awareness about sexual harassment through educational initiatives that encourages and fosters a respectful and safe campus environment. The Cell seeks to inform the campus community of their right to a respectful work and learning environment. It believes that if we practice respect, exercise empathy in our interactions with others so that we do not hurt anyone through what we say or do then we can create a campus that is free of sexual harassment. Simple respect for all on the campus community is thus the focus. The Cell seeks to achieve these goals through: Dissemination of Information – Display of printed materials & posters. Awareness Workshops – about sexual harassment for faculty, non-teaching staff and students. The aim is to develop nonthreatening and non-intimidating atmosphere of mutual learning. Counselling – Confidential counselling service is an important service as it provides a safe space to speak about the incident and how it has affected the victim because sexual harassment cases are rarely reported and is a sensitive issue. The Complaint Mechanism (Procedure to file/report a complaint): The complainant will have to submit a written and signed complaint addressed to the Director/Secretary of the Cell. The Cell will call the complainant for a personal meeting, usually within a week from the submission of the written complaint. The members of the Cell will discuss the complaint. If the case falls outside the purview of the Cell, the complainant will be informed about the same by the appropriate authority. If the case comes under the purview of the Cell, an enquiry committee will be set up. The Committee will submit a report and recommend the nature of action to be taken at the earliest by the appropriate authority. The individuals /victims who seeks to resolve the complaints of sexual harassment can also now contact through the web -page and lodge their complaints through the Online Complaint Registration form.
