Pam Hackett's 6th India Mission Trip to BGSS
This January, Pam Hackett returned to India for the 6th time to work with the Beautiful Gates Special School. Since her first visit in 2009, the school has tripled in size, adding new buildings and new programs, such as vocational training for older students. The BGSS student population is diverse, with students with autism, Down ’s syndrome, MR, and CP. The school has no local occupational or physical therapy support, so Pam’s visits provide an opportunity for teachers and parents to learn new strategies for helping students progress in their motor skills. Pam also consults extensively on sensory strategies to help improve attention and behavior. PTS will continue to provide ongoing consultative services remotely to make sure the kids keep moving forward!
