Ministry of Health inaugurates sensory impairment treatment clinics

The Ministry of Health has started using sensory impairment rooms or clinics in which to treat children with special needs, said a ministry official on Wednesday.

Sensory impairment is when one of your senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and spatial awareness, is no longer normal and needs rehabilitation.

Dr. Jamal Al-Harbi, assistant undersecretary for supportive medical assistance services at the ministry, indicated in a press conference that the first such room is now in use at the natural therapy hospital, capable of treating 36 cases a day.

It is one of six rooms being prepared to treat disabled children with sensory impairment problems, he said, noting that these rooms will soon be available at hospitals in Al-Jahra, Farwaniya, Adan, and Al-Sabah.

He added that specialists evaluate children in these rooms on an individual basis before charting out a treatment plan for them.
