An inspiring session was conducted by Limia Dewan (Senior Programme Manager, BRAC Education Programme) and Farzana Faruq (Principal, Angels Care Foundation) about their mission and vision with Persons with Disabilities (PWD) and how Therap is being beneficial for their agencies to track and document all kinds of information about the individuals. Moreover, there were two-panel discussions conducted by Prattay Iqbal (Director – Business Development Asia, MENA & Africa Region) and Malisa Mahjabeen (Senior Training & Implementation Specialist), which included discussions about enhancing the quality of services for Persons with Disabilities (PWD) by using Therap software. After lunch, there were 3 concurrent sessions; one with the executive members of the agencies, another with teachers, therapists and direct service providers, followed by one to one session with the attendees. All the sessions were highly interactive and beneficial for the attendees.
