Addressing the delegates on the inaugural day of the workshop, LPU Pro Chancellor Mrs Rashmi Mittal said: “Such seminars and workshops are very necessary to sensitize society for accepting persons with disabilities in equivalence to able-bodied persons. Such persons too have strengths and inherent values, so their dignity must be ensured and respected. As parents are filled with compassionate care and understanding, they must come forward to make such organizations achieve their objectives in protecting the rights of affected persons.”
