SNEP with the new project on supporting children with cerebral palsy

date_range2018-09-07

“Community-Based Rehabilitation and Inclusive Education for Children with Mobility Impairment” is a three-year project funded by Saigonchildren’s Special Needs Education Program (SNEP) to support rehabilitation and provide special education for children with mobility impairment due to cerebral palsy. 

Cerebral palsy is a term used to refer to a group of conditions that affect the control of movements and postures. Because one or more of the parts of the brain that control movement are damaged, the person cannot move his or her muscles normally. Symptoms range from mild to severe, including paralysis. If getting treated properly, most children can significantly improve their ability. 

In the morning on August 26th, the representatives from Caritas, Thien Phuoc shelter in Củ Chi, Ho Chi Minh City Orphans Association, physiotherapist, pediatrician – speech pathologist, and rehabilitation technicians attended the seminar about “Exchanging information, communicating ideas and giving directions for children with cerebral palsy and their families”. Apart from those mentioned representatives among the participants, there were also parents, children with cerebral palsy and their families and the children from Thien Phuoc shelter.  

The purpose of this seminar is to raise awareness about children with cerebral palsy, provide the participants with up-to-date knowledge about cerebral palsy and answer any questions from the parents. In the effort to give the children the needed support to recover and integrate to the community better, saigonchildren works with different organizations working with children with disabilities. At this seminar, the experts shared their experience about rehabilitation for children with brain damage and cerebral palsy parenting and caregiving methods to give them more motivation and confidence in their children. 

The seminar was short but informative enough to give more hope for those attending that day.
