Today he speaks clearly enough; he can re-apply for admission in the government school.

Firoz has a speech defect. He went to Government school until he graduated to Class 5. By then the teasing about his speech was enough to keep him away from school forever, but he persisted to the Secondary school for admission to Class 6. He was refused. The teachers did not want to take on a child whom they said they would not be able to understand.
Determined to continue his education he referred himself to the Walk In. His teacher at Hope took on the challenge of proving the Government School wrong. He consolidated the child’s learning and sent him to a speech therapist at the Shroff Hospital (Hope has a collaboration). Today he speaks clearly enough for us to be sure that he can re-apply for admission in the government school.
