Help 500 children with disabilities in Kharkov



This project will allow to organize 5 Early Intervention centers in the different areas of the city of Kharkov. Annually about 500 families with early age children with developmental delays and disabilities will get the early intervention service. Children with Down syndrom, autism, cerebral palsy and other problems will have professional help and their parents - support. Our efforts are directed to the prevention of institualisation and invalidisation of children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Kharkov, about 3,000 children with disabilities. Families can not receive early intervention services in the public service, they simply do not exist. Our team (speech therapists, psychologists, physical therapists, doctors) in Kharkov creates network of early intervention in order to family centered, interdisciplinary early intervention service will be available to families who need it.

How will this project solve this problem?

Each year, 500 families with children with disabilities can receive assistance in the development of the child, in the organization of living space, its integration into the society. In five centers of early intervention children will receive regular training with professionals.
