Dear Donor, please receive a warm greeting. We want to take the time to sincerely thank you for your donation to this project. . As you know, we started this fundraiser to provide a quality health center to the disabled children of the deprived communities of our province and your contribution helps us get one step closer to our goal.
We truly appreciate your support !
The center began in 2019 as a response to the 10% of children under the age of 12 in the eastern region with special needs such as Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy and learning disabilities. To date, they have treated more than 9,000 children, with an average of 140 patients per week.
The center continues to offer specialized medical services to boys and girls from 0 to 12 years old diagnosed with down syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy whether due to genetic or acquired factors.
In the second phase we hope to offer medical services for children with learning disability.
Currently all the medical services are available . The areas with the highest flow of patients are: Early Care Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Rehabilitation and Speech Therapy.
The most common medical cases are autism, cerebral palsy, psychomotor retardation, phonological disorders, neurodevelopmental disorder
Services available from 8 am. at 4 pm. from Monday to Friday:
- Social work.
- Pediatrics and Nutrition
- Psychological evaluations (over 5 years old).
- Early Care Assessment (under 5 years old)
- Psychometric test.
- Family therapy
- Group Therapy.
- Behavioral Therapy.
- Early Care Therapy.
- Speech therapy
The family therapy is very important, what is it for?
It improves the functioning of couples and their relationship with their children and develop strategies and skills to manage family / social / work stress.
The center recently incorporated physiatry services, available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m, in order to identify what is causing pain and help a patient manage and treat the issue, with the goal of recovering mobility and functional well-being.
This is the first time that a local medical center has this type of specialist.
There are still many needs to meet in terms of equipment (for example video-electroencephalogram, electric treadmill, medical software for the comprehensive management of the center, others), staff training and supplies. We look forward to continue partnering with you in order to get these goals together
We will keep you informed about the progress of the project. If you have any comment, advice or question, please feel free to direct them to us and we will answer as best we can.
There is no way to fully express our gratitude for your support
