Hydrotherapy was established among the most recent projects for early stimulation, this activity generates different benefits for the little ones at Hogar Bambi Venezuela, stimulation provides benefits in psychomotor capacity, and the pool environment provides enjoyment, relaxation and continuing physical development in a calm environment.
In addition to cognitive benefits, hydrotherapy develops the cardio-respiratory system, this strengthens the heart and lungs of babies, and allows a development in oxygenation in the blood and the organism.
The health of babies is essential for Hogar Bambi
We are more than grateful that you are part of this.
THANK YOU very much for all your support!
Para este proyecto trabajamos de la siguiente forma:
Evaluar: Recoger y organizar sistemáticamente los datos sobre el desempeño del niño. En sus diferentes edades según la clasificación: recién nacido, lactante menor, lactante mayor, párvulo, escolar y adolecente.
Definición del problema: buscando sintetizar los datos para formular un perfil ocupacional de las capacidades y discapacidades de los niños, en el desempeño ocupacional y definir los problemas que serán el objetivo de las intervenciones de terapia ocupacional.
Planificación de las intervenciones: se proponen estrategias y modalidades específicas de terapias ocupacionales para aliviar o mejorar los problemas, que reflejan los objetivos y se establecen los resultados para marcar los puntos finales de la terapia y sirven como indicadores de eficacia del plan de intervención.
Implementación de la intervención: se ejecuta un plan de intervención, se inician las acciones para lograr los resultados establecidos.
Reevaluación: se vuelve a recoger sistemáticamente los datos de la evaluación y comparar los datos de evaluación y reevaluación para determinar si se han satisfecho los resultados, y si es apropiada la interrupción en caso contrario determinar acción posterior.
Siempre trabajando para los pequeños.
Occupational therapy is the art and science of helping people perform daily activities that are important and meaningful to their health and well-being. The occupations are centered on the participant's (children's) identity and sense of competence. Based on the areas of occupations of each child, according to the age at the time of the evaluation and the stage of development, we define if the expected goals are being met or not.
We work in the following Areas of Occupation: activities of daily living, instrumental activities of daily living, rest and sleep, education, leisure, free time, social participation. Performance skills: sensory and perceptual (Vestibular, Proprioception, Visual, Auditory, emotional regulation, cognitive stimulation, Communication skills and social skills.
Thanks to your support we are moving forward!
In our pediatric area, we address early childhood development by providing stimulation activities and therapy to help meet developmental milestones, which refers to the set of skills that the child develops, which comes from the maturation of the central nervous system (CNS) and interaction with the environment. These developmental skills are clearly identifiable and mark a new stage in the development of each child, through play and exploration.
Early stimulation goals:
Maintaining motor functions such as joint amplitudes, muscle tone, gross and fine motor skills, and functional use of the hand.
Maintaining or integrating sensory functioning: body schema, visual-spatial relationship, body integration, reflexes and sensitivity.
Cognitive functions: by exploring the environment and objects.
Affective / social relationships, with peers and caregiver.
Stimulation through play is fundamental for the evolution of the children’s development.
In the period from February to September 2021, occupational therapy was performed in an individualized manner to the children at Hogar Bambi, with each session lasting 45 minutes for each child. Specifically: 15 boys and 19 girls.
Dear Hogar Bambi Supporter,
Many of the children that arrive at Hogar Bambi Venezuela exhibit signs of malnutrition and developmental delays and have had limited access to pediatric care and standard child immunizations. This justifies the need to maintain and expand our programs and projects to address early childhood development and stimulation activities that support psychomotor development so that cognitive development and sensory-motor responses are not negatively impacted.
Over the course of 2021, 34 children received early stimulation and psychomotor interventions to address fine, gross, hyper and hypo motor skills, in order to improve and develop their sensory motor skills and self-regulation ability. This translates in better adaptive responses, improved grip, gravitational security, whilst satisfying key walking phases including altering steps and having the ability to go up and down stairs with altering steps. This supports better hand-eye coordination, including the ability perform bipodal vertical jumps, and unipedal jumps without losing balance.
Thanks to your donations, we at Hogar Bambi work daily to support the children we receive at our orphanage, most of whom arrive under-weight and / or with psychomotor delays as well as many other challenges. Through early stimulation combined with a well-balanced diet, and thanks to our great multidisciplinary team comprised of pediatricians, therapists, nurses, and our trained staff, we remain deeply committed to the wellbeing of our children.
Thank you for the support and on we go!
