PROVIDING physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and communication therapy are some of the major plans of the Hilton Organisation in its bid to improve the lives of people with disabilities in our community.

Organisation CEO/board member Sureni Perera made the announcement at the Hilton Special School last Friday in conjunction with the organisation's 50th anniversary.

"We will also provide hostel facilities for students from afar that are referred to our centre, temporary care and accommodation to mothers and babies who will require assessments and screening," Ms Perera said.

"We will pursue a multidisciplinary approach in providing centre-based intervention programs to infants and babies, provide intensive parent training for ongoing continuity and consistency, provide early childhood education programs and primary school education programs.

"The management will also choose to assist through child benefits in the form of school stationery, uniforms, and school shoes in order to mitigate hardships of parents."
