Institute of Health Sciences (IHS) is one of India's premier medical institutions providing professional rehabilitation courses like BASLP, BPT, etc. It is by far India's only institution that houses all types of therapeutics and rehab support inhouse catering to patients where students can practice and perfect their skills.
Aditi Integrated School
Aditi Integrated School was conceived as a girl child education project for socio-economically disadvantaged children. The school provides free food, school uniform, school books and accessories and conveyance facilities, not just free teaching. Children with special needs are integrated into the informal set up to learn social skills by participating in recreational activities.
Infrastructure of the campus is planned keeping the need of disability rehabilitation in mind. While buildings were having accessible corridors, courtyard provided natural lighting and ventilation. Landscape was paved with pathways to facilitate locomotor training. Locally available building materials apart, natural materials were used to minimise carbon footprint. Unplastered stone walls required no painting. The overall impact was to create an ambience that looks like a health resorts, rather than a hospital.
Greenery was created with shady trees to cool the air. Wide blade grass was used to cover the exposed land area. Many medicinal shrubs, creepers and trees dot the campus. The organic waste is recycled. Rainwater harvesting facilities are fitted at different places to recharge the ground water. Single use plastic is discouraged in the canteen. Solar lighting is installed at different places.
A small hydrotherapy unit is created for providing therapy to children with motor disorders like Cerebral Palsy and muscular dystrophy. Children with Autism who have motor integration issues or kids with Down's syndrome also benefit from the centre.
