A. This department was created on a presidential ordinance. in early Eighties by ,than dictator due to his personal interest. Initially four disabilities were targeted i-e Hearing, Mental, Visual & Physical, and initial centers were established in rental houses. B. Later on his favorites toured the Globe to see/ study system of rehabilitation and Special Education in developed Nations; they were also assigned Tasks to set Centers of Excellence in Capital & in Provincial Headquarters for each Disability. C. Initially for each Disability two centre each were started in Islamabad which were later on merged into newly constructed purpose built Buildings for each disability (2000) ,they were purpose built for each Disability but hardly a year gone when misuse of buildings started b y others due to lack of initiative to work & utilize their buildings at full potential by departmental heads itself hence half of MRC and HIC was taken over by Bait ul Maal , because neither We could run our Centers nor We could develop these rehabilitation institutes into Centres of Excellence !!. D. Another Half of MRC building was taken over by VREDP on First floor & on Ground three class rooms were given to an NGO “Mile Stones” in 2005 due to same reasons. E. Recruitments done in those institutes were unjustified ,on adhoc basis and Teachers were given 17grade as starting without judging their will , working acumen and affiliation or knowledge in the field. Perhaps only criteria set was Nepotism,due to that reason most of them kept on adhoc and later on nominal commissions were conducted on departmental requests and everybody was passed, same was done for deputy Directors under same formulae. F. Officers jumped into this department just to get early promotions and better choices without giving 100% in jobs. G. False reasoning was created in MRC & HIC to keep most of the children illiterate as MR has no Education or nominal education of basic levels with no certificates of any regulating body. H. HIC courses were Modified (CUT) to one fourth of original due to illogical beliefs & false pretentions which were self created by Sr. Teachers & So called scholars of the field. As all centers started as Primary rehabilitation Centers. HIC used their PTA to develop their institute into Secondary than Higher Secondary institute with same formula of modified Curricula as a result Certificates are marked as “For Special Persons” and bear no weight age in Job Market. what happens Children waste most of Life playing and having a good life in our centers but when suddenly they had to face realities of life, they have no thing
30 year round but take more than an hour’s break & most of them never return to classes because 10. except those where families work hard with their children and in develop World almost all HI children gets a quality & at par Education with their normal counterparts and due to hardwork and missionary zeal of Teachers most of students speak by Lip reading to convey by Writing . J. many of them leave school due to connections or urgent works.30Am is last time. some Teachers have acquired posts of DDOs & Transport officers & misuse authority. they also could not use their institutes and Ministry of Social welfare was settled in their Hostels !! Another institute was established to train teachers and other staff members year round. hence daily an stream of useless exercise is done by administration of centers! Teachers are back bone of system most of them have no knowledge or very superficial knowledge of their profession. Reasons are multiple Bad and faulty recruitment. They have sections for all disabilities but courses they impart are never practical & up-to-date. either no goals setting or false claims. reflectively they stop sitting in their classes or time tables are devised to suit their goals children do PTs. lack of interest in JOB /career development. weekly reports and already on their tables . games. leave alone latest trends & developments. most of Knowledge is stagnant in 80s. Weekly reports. In Pakistan we have our local version too but most of teachers use their own cooked & twisted versions! Same issues are with Physical handicapped & Blind but many of them get normal Education because they have normal brain. they were stationed in hostel building for visually impaired children but after getting their own building & budget they are now situated in sector H/8. no base was seriously laid down by so called pioneers. even a common student of that institute in Matric or FA fails to answer a grade II or III question. Music. Gymkhana. So is with hearing impaired but here a mafia controls things . whole Medicines has been revived in past 20 years but this deptt. K. Daily they need things which were already in daily. Speech . M. Substandard courses or trainings. monthly.30 to 1. Stay in 82 or 84 when they started. there are soft wares of sign language available and each country has their own version even Magazines are printed in Sign language. Timings are 8. Standard of education is naturally sub standard . Computers & internet has changed our lives 380 degrees but not in Pakistan’s Special Education. L. in hand. With internet and computer research is too easy and getting Knowledge from any corner of World is only matter of seconds but they even don’t know that most of work done in 80S IS OBSOLETE at present. DGSE as regulating body acts as useless governor they asks daily activities .I. N. Or impressive for trainees. Most of institutes serve as day care centers with zero out come at all levels. false Success stories. monthly detailed reports religiously but never open and read in concerned deptt.
General Secretary is special crony who acts on behalf of Directors.! Parent Teachers Associations A. In 2005 an undisputed combined seniority list was according to date of commission and most of teachers were lower in lists because of years of ad-hoc postings and failing even departmental commissions but with an strange move in 2008. most of Directors cannot take decisions and even petty things are asked from concerned Directors @ directorate & Deliberately keeps out Deputy Directors from all matters. Speech therapist. its repair. No Elections are conducted. personal favorites are selected among teachers & Parents. Director Admn. Government donated Suzuki vans to the PTAs for their official use and for pick & drop of children! But almost each centre uses it as official vehicles of Directors & other staff. In our system it’s a puppet in the hands of Directors of Centers. they never allow DRs. C.. Only. two separate cadres were created Teachers v/s All cadres . well qualified. dishonored and neglected. System A. Each institute is run by a Director.therapy. on that behalf teachers who passed commissions in 2001 or later were given “four tier” .! B. assisted by a Deputy Director but Director acts as an autonomous monarch. they feel & act as custodians of this system. All parents & Staff are members of PTA but never given any office to sincere staff members due to wasted interests. only interest we show is in financial parts of PTA. hence majority of promotions are in their share. Parents are only kept to show or use their personal connections. whole system of PTA is fake & manipulated. There are two large groups in this department Teachers & Social case workers. Many Teachers and other staff members have donation slips of PTA in their pockets and they collect money on behalf of PTA but majority never deposits it in PTA accounts!!! Meetings are irregular and depend on need of directors. maintenance and POL is pushed on PTA beside other expenses. concerned and interested parents are disregarded. Colleges). who is answerable only to DGSE/ DG/ Director NR. Physiotherapists and other cadres to advance or represent their problems to higher authorities. Vocational with no out come as nothing is done professionally anywhere and none of them has any audit in last 40 years.

Mandate A. who follow WHO guidelines (Pakistan also) does screening of at least 10 conditions /hormones/enzymes whose deficiency congenitally can prevent physical or mental retardations. this formula of four tier in health & education only gives move over to Medical Officers & Teachers . 3. while each Centre has multiple VPs & Ps !!!

No audit is conducted in any of institutes in the past 40 years to see how many students got a successful rehabilitation and re incorporated in main stream . diagnosis & management too. They resists any move to get passed out such students whose ages are over than 20 to 25 years. Rehabilitation: concept of rehabilitation and incorporation into main stream is totally blurred speciaslly in MR.
