It is my pleasure to inform you that I have took over the charge of Executive Director of NIPMR on 5th
February 2018 from Dr. Samuel N. Mathew, in addition to my normal duties as Executive Director, Social
Security Mission, Govt. of Kerala. NIPMR is now in a take off stage by introducing new facilities and
services apart from the existing services, such as Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy & Audio Testing,
Occupational Therapy and Special school for the Cerebral Palsy Children.
Our outreach program called ‘Rehab on Wheels’ which is a joint project of Petronet CCK Limited and
NIPMR is doing excellent service for those who have difficulty in accessing the services of the
institution like physiotherapy, speech therapy, audio test, occupational therapy, psychotherapy etc.
The weekly Learning Disability Clinic functioning in NIPMR, is doing yeoman services to children having
learning difficulties and have two batches of children in every Saturdays. The Learning Disability
Clinic is managed by a team of Special Educators, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and
We have a new project for setting up a state of art hydrotherapy unit in NIPMR. We hope that this will
enhance the quality of therapeutic services provided by the institution. We are now in the process of
establishing a ‘Prosthetic and Orthotic Lab’ to provide customised artificial limbs to the needy.
We have an excellent sensory integration room in our institution for the benefit of childrens having
sensory issues. And started constructing a sensory garden for therapeutic purpose.
We wish to establish a full-fledged ‘Autism Rehabilitation and Research Centre’ in the near future with
all facilities like virtual reahabilitation room, play equipments, physician support, music & dance
We solicite your earnest sugggestions for improving the services provided by this organisation on par
with international standards.
