Dear Friend,

We sincerely thank you for your support of our Global Giving project!

With your help, the Elatma`s orphanage (Ryazan region) continues to hold Portage teaching sessions. This year, the specialists have already conducted 1540 sessions with 20 children having severe developmental disorders.

The "Portage" method has been used all over the world since the 70s of the 20th century and is designed for individual work with children who have various psychophysical disorders. With the help of this method, children with various levels of disabilities acquire skills in the areas of socialization, self-service, cognition, motor activity, and communication. More than 10 years ago, Russian organizations began to successfully apply the methodology.

Ksenia (the name has been altered) has lately learned to score pegs, 5 out of 5! Following instructions of the tutor, she hangs her sweater or jacket onto a hanger and fixes it on the crossbar. Ksyusha has also learned to answer in the affirmative when she is asked something. There are some other new skills that are being worked out.

Elya (the name has been altered) has been in the project since the beginning of the year, her spasticity is progressing and now almost all the time she has to stay lying. But, during this short period of time, she has already learned 3 skills! Elya smiles and makes joyful sounds, looking at her reflection in the mirror. She has learned to follow brightly coloured toys with her eyes. And one more important result: Elya has learned to keep her feeding-bottle without any assistance, even though her fingers spasticity is very strong!

All these children have very serious intellectual and physical disabilities, each child has his/her own big "bunch" ... But despite this, each of them has developed significantly. The "Portage" method allows to take into account particularities and abilities of each child. And with the patience of teachers and their faith in each child, sooner or later the long-awaited victory does come!

We express our most sincere appreciation to our Philanthropists for supporting these sessions - without you, the development of children would have been impossible!

Stay with us, making donations and telling your friends about us – children need your support very much!

Dear friend,


Every week we are taking care of children with the most severe and multiple violations development by dogs therapists sessions. Such terrible diagnoses and disorders of the cerebral cortex as our children are extremely rare. On the one hand, this is good news. On the other hand – there are still such children, in the study of which the doctors raise their hands, and the Director of the orphanage are sure that such children can be only washed and fed. Most people are convinced that our children have no future because of a difficult diagnosis. But we are not!

And we are pleased to announce that your donation and the work of therapists break stereotypes and regularly bring positive results. We see with our own eyes how a child who

The guys who usually noisy, behaved so quiet that you could hear as the beating hearts of all those present in the room.
having spent 2 years of classes in an orphanage with a group of children,

the children suddenly gave stunning results:


* Andrew (name changed), who could not hold the ball in his hands, could not feel the ball in the center of his body, now bend his legs, lie on his back, learned to center his body thanks to the therapeutic ball and Mat of therapeutic dogs;


• Dima (name changed), who spent all his time in a wheelchair shouting, kept and biting dogs, now lies quietly on the Mat of the dogs, screams and smiles! Even specialists of the institution working with him every day were amazed at this;


• Nastia (name changed), not buscava anyone in your space (no employees, no dogs) yesterday quietly lying on the right side among the dogs adjusted to the curves of their body and for a moment turned she back, what also was not expected and to which she was previously not capable.


This joy of the development of each child can not be expressed in words, it is necessary to see and feel with them.
Write us what you think about our project elena@ddfund.ru your opinion is very important to us!

Dear friend!

We wholeheartedly thank you for supporting our project at Global Giving!

Thanks to you, we continue the developmental sessions of dog-therapy in orphanages. In December, we held session at the Center for the Promotion of Family Education "Vera.Nadezhda.Lyubov" (Moscow).

This time Sasha (name changed) was waiting for her turn especially hard. nd then she lay down on the rug to the three golden retrievers, she immediately relaxed and smiled. The therapist helped her to relax, stretched the muscles of her arms and legs.

Christina (name changed), despite the difficult diagnosis, a very sociable and smiling girl. She began therapy not so long ago, but immediately passionately fell in love with dogs, rejoices them every time. While we were studying with other children, she was watching with fascination the dogs, reaching out to them from the wheelchair, trying to touch at least a little. And when they put it on the rug, then immediately began to embrace the "sunny dogs". Together with the therapist she fed the retrievers and played with them. For Cristina the dog is a great holiday!

Gleb (name changed) at first did not want to study with  dogs, he was a little excited. But nevertheless together with the therapist at first led one dog on a leash, then led two at once. And in the end, having relaxed, already stroked all three, sitting with them on the rug. After session, Gleb sat down at the table, picked up a toy and, smiling, several times said: "Good!"

In this center we have been conducting regular sessions for the fourth year already. And we are convinced: all children, despite the most serious developmental disorders, improve their condition in one or several spheres - motor, emotional, socialization or intellectual development.

Thank you very much for the support of our children - without you their development would be impossible!

Dear friend!

We heartedly thank you for supporting our project at GlobalGiving!

With your support we are continuing the developmental sessions on the method of "Portage" with children with severe disabilities in the Elatma`s orphanage. So, in September, there were conducted 294 sessions. Four specialists were daily engaged with 14 children individually, thanks to which children acquired 14 new skills!

So, Kolya S. (the name is changed) mastered 3 skills at once! It was possible to develop fine motor skills of the hands, communication skills, cognitive abilities. Also our specialists were practicing with him the actions that would allow the child to be more independent in life. Kolya has consistently achieved success in almost everything. It is pleasing that he began to sit in a pear-chair, directly holding his head for 5 minutes! No wonder the boy was taught to pull himself by the fingers of an adult and sit from the first month of sessions!

Also, Kolya was diligently learning to drop his hands in a basin of water, and then, to wet them, pouring some water on his face. This is a necessary stage for "special" children in mastering the ability to wash, wipe their face and hands. Kolya has worked out this useful skill to automatism.

And the nine-year-old Pauline L. (name changed) has acquired the ability to draw with a pencil and a felt-tip pen. She is also developing the skill to zip up the clothes. Also Polina knows where her playing place in the game room, but recently the girl for the first time has put a stool for the tutor opposite to herself! By her actions and success, Polina seems to be challenging, because the child has a Down syndrome and a deep development delay, in addition to other concomitant diagnoses. But classes on Portage help her to develop!

So, month after month, the life of children with severe and multiple disabilities is steadily changing for the better! Thanks to everyone who is involved in this! Without your participation children would be deprived of the opportunity to develop the most important everyday skills, of constant attention of an adult close to them, of walks and joy of communication!

Stay with us, making donations and telling us about your friends. For these children, development means life!

Dear friend!

With your support, we continue the practice of dog-therapy at the Orphanage for children with disability.  Children, despite severe developmental disorders, there are improvements in the motor, emotional spheres, in socialization, intellectual development.

At the last lesson Gleb again rushed first to the dogs. At first I took a long lead on a leash, each time it turns out all the better. I also learned how to give commands - and this is Gleb's work! And he still managed to lie on the rug, for a long time, thoughtfully, he worked everything himself.

Olga again crawled away from us - she is blind, so her tactile sensations are sharpened. Dogs are too strong stimuli for its receptors. But, after lying down for a bit, Olga began to smile - it means she is already pleased, and further success will be.

Another Gleb, younger, also blind, participated only 2 times in the sessions. Last time he was frightened, he was constrained and could not go beyond the usual poses. But this time everything was different - he was already completely calm and relaxed, immediately began to work out the very centering of the body, to babble, to iron the dogs. The therapist helped to relax his legs and arms - Gleb smiled, the ice broke!

We worked with Sasha for a long time ago - but she immediately remembered the dogs, reached for them, agreed to the rug, independently worked everything, smiled. What was our surprise to learn that the girl is very capricious and capricious in contacts - she can not even be transferred to another group, where she is unfamiliar with teachers. But with dogs and us she communicated completely without complexes! Dog-therapy miraculously helps in the socialization of children.

And Timur, adoring dogs, as always had everything - played with different toys and a cane, lay down. Although the guy has the strongest spasm of all limbs – but he can more and more with the help of dogs.

 

We sincerely thank you for your support of our project on the Global Giving!

We cordially thank you for your support of our children - without you, their development would not be possible!

Stay with us, making donations and telling your friends about us – children very needs your support!
