Along with the camp, we organized one workshop also for the speech and language trainers of Snehalaya, a local NGO of Tinsukia. The duration of the workshop was for 15 days. As speech and language therapy needs long term follow up, the team Snehalaya will do it.  The camp was very successful and we got all support from local ENT Doctors and other professionals, working on this field.
