Early support to 20 special needs children

by Friends of Karin dom Association


The project will ensure that 20 children aged 0-3 who are at risk of falling behind in their development, including preterm and/or low-birth-weight infants; who have developmental delays or disabilities, will receive a complex quality early intervention service. They will have opportunity to social and educational inclusion and will receive therapy to stimulate their development. Families will be supported and empowered to be main actors in their child's life and care.

The birth of a child with disability in Bulgaria makes families feel a lot of stress, social isolation, helplessness and despair. Due to the lack of adequate and necessary policies, practices and professional services to support parents in this challenge, children often miss the chance for timely intervention in their early years. Society also suffers because ignoring the importance of early intervention creates inequality, confrontation and social exclusion.


Karin Dom's Early Intervention Program is a mobile service consisting of home visits delivered by a multidisciplinary team: physiotherapist, speech therapist, psychologist, social worker. Additional services include parent support groups, toy library and playgroups. In the core of the service is the family-oriented approach where professionals and parents work in partnership, towards strengthening the potential and the resources of the family to stimulate the development of their young children.

Long-Term Impact

The Early Intervention services of Karin Dom have impact on children, families and society. They help children achieve better outcomes, support social inclusion, protect human rights, support families and save valuable community resources.
