Coimbatore: Sensory park a boon for special children

Children with autism spectrum disorder and hyperactivity benefit greatly from the therapeutic and sensory park that is a part of the District Early Intervention Centre (DEIC) on the grounds of Coimbatore Medical College Hospital (CMCH).
Children with conditions like autism, hearing impairment, mobility issues, or mild cerebral palsy are taken to the park as part of occupational therapy at the centre to stimulate their senses. “We have painted the premises in different hues, established a reflexology path for touch senses, planted tusli and other herbs for smell sense, and placed a xylophone for making sounds,” says the occupational therapist.
