“I was able to grow as a teacher, and better serve my students”.
My name is Tong Tran Thien Thanh and I work at the Center for Rehabilitation and Education for Disabled Children in Khanh Hoa Province. Two years ago, I met a boy named Kha Lam. Initially, Lam did not speak or respond to his name.
In 2016, I participated in a training session on early intervention for children with autism at the Khanh Hoa Center. This was a project sponsored by Saigonchildren™ through its Special Needs Education programme. In this session, experts taught us early intervention techniques, including how to guide parents during therapy. After this training, I applied my knowledge to sessions with Lam and his mother.
Today, Lam is able to converse and ask questions. I would like to thank Mr. Dominik, Saigonchildren, and LHA for paying attention to Kha Lam. With their help, I was able to grow as a teacher and better serve my students.
Teacher of Lam,
