Dementia is a long-standing disease of the brain mostly seen in elderly age. The most important symptom is memory loss, however impairment of other cognitive domains as well as behavioural abnormalities are seen. Even though the majority of the dementia patients cannot be cured at the moment early diagnosis and symptomatic treatment are important in alleviating suffering to the patient and family. With an increase in the elderly population in the society, the number of patients with Dementia will increase phenomenally in developing countries like in India in years to come and is hence a major public health problem.
Individual registrants require a high-speed internet connection with Laptop/PC/Mobile phone/Tablet to watch the webinar. A microphone and webcam are required for the interactive session after the one-hour presentation by the speaker. Or the interested participants can register via telephone on the number: 0471-2944675

Smt. Smrithy Rajesh shared her experience as a parent of a special child with Autism. She started working as a co-therapist for her son and is a qualified Special Educator certified by the Karnataka Parents’ Association for Mentally Retarded Citizens (KPAMRC). She works as a Special Educator at Bubbles Centre for Autism, Bangalore. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is stigmatized and lesser known in India. Smrithy’s keen interest in training her son to use AAC and spreading awareness using social media is inspiring. When she saw remarkable progress in her child with the techniques she used, she created a YouTube channel and blog to share her ideas and thoughts with other parents.
