Children Special Needs

Many times children with special needs cannot be cared for at home, or are abandoned by their parents at birth.  Special needs children, living in a care center, rely soley on their caregivers for every basic need.

This Therapeutic Education Center offers home to children and adolescents diagnosed with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, ages from 6/7 to 13/14. These diagnoses may be associated with other neurological disorders as epilepsy, infantile autism, Prader Willi syndrome, personality disorders and PDD. Actually the center assists 40 people.

Most children with “special needs” are neglected by society, or turned over to an orphanage.  Volunteers with therapy training, or skills working with special needs children are welcome.  The orphanage caters to mentally and physically disabled children. The level of illness varies from child to child but all need individual attention to grow and develop as a normal human being and to join the main stream of society.

This program is ideal for compassionate volunteers who want to help teens and adults who have a range of physical and intelectual disabilities.  

This is a challenging but rewarding special needs school project that caters to children with development delays as well as vision and hearing impairments.  There are several students who are deaf, and sign language is commonly used to help communicate with the children.  Some of the children live with autism, Down’s syndrome and are being provided speech therapy.

This program is open to all international volunteers who enjoy working with people with all kind of special needs individuals, and those with developmental disabilities. The center’s mission is to provide their residents with a place to live, a place to grow and learn and live in peace and harmony.
