Screening in LBS school, Herbertpur

I am finally here in Samagra. My new home for next six months.We went to Lal Bhadur Shastri Shiksha Niketan School to check kids' hearing, eye seight & speech. Joyce was in charge of testing eyes, Vijay for hearing and JP for speech. While Katy & Melissa were interacting with teachers & students, Richard was busy taking photographs. Out of 120 kids that we screened , there were two kids with weak eye sight, 15 with some kind of speech difficulties, a few kids with wax in their ears and one kid with down syndrome. I felt good for being of any help to the kids & also amazed by the expertise that Vijay has in dealing with young kids. I am really excited about more such trips in future. (JP)
