New Indian Express has a report about a similar school that is not directly listed above. It may be a new one or may be part of one of the above. Following are some excerpts from the New Indian Express report.

City-based International Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences and Research has decided to introduce a four-and-half-year degree programme in physiotherapy from the current academic session.

In all, 20 students would be enrolled in the first batch through a screening test. The programme has been recognised by the State Government and the institute is affiliated to Utkal University, said director Chitrasen Parida. Talking to mediapersons here on Sunday, he said a bachelor degree programme in audiology and speech language pathology is also being introduced from this session.

Both the courses have been approved by the Rehabilitation Council of India. The institute has invested about Rs 70 lakh out of Rs 1.76 crore which it plans to pump in three years for development of supporting infrastructure. Soon it would come up with its own campus.

Chairman of Shreedevi Charitable Trust, Kalyanpuri, Gandhi Chaudhury said a model pre-school for special children has already been established for their holistic development. A comprehensive diagnostic clinic ‘Susruta’ providing services for people with deafness, cerebral palsy, autism, speech and language disorders is functioning from the campus.
