The logo consists of a circle in the centre of which runs a step ladder showing gross motor mile stones of a child. The Circle represents the all encompassing Environment progressively moving from the child development centered micro focus to the larger policy making exo environment depticting Urine Bronfenbrenner’s socio ecological model of child development. The IACP vision thus encompasses efforts to improve services at all these levels with a lifespan approach from infancy to adulthood.
The step ladder itself represents the touch point model of Brazelton where the landings or the natural plateaus suggest periods of developmental stagnation which are periods of opportunity for parental counseling addressing their coping ensuring our commitment to a family center approach with an unwavering accent on optimal development rather than impossible dream of normalization.
The background shows a radiant topical sun showing light & warmth on children’s developmental progress symbolizing the WHO slogan of international decade of the handicapped [1981-1991] – “A PLACE UNDER THE SUNSHINE FOR ALL HANDICAPPED” – confirming our commitment to a rights based approach which unifies the biological model of disability care with the social model as envisaged by our slogan “FROM DISABILITY TO DIFFERENT ABILITY”.
LONGLIVE IACP & MAY WE ACHIVE OUR GOAL OF ENSURING CAPABILITY, CAPACITY, PARTICIPATIONS AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR ALL PERSONS WITH DEVELOPMENT IMPAIRMENTS AS A TEAM. GROWING STRONGER AS WE MOVE FORWARD FROM INTENTIONS TO ACTION.
