The Occupational Therapy department’s main goal is to evaluate the sensory motor skills and perceptual skills of the children during different daily life activities in order to maximize their functional level. Both departments work with the parents to update the home treatment program, special home equipments and give referrals to specialists (e.g. pediatric orthopedic consultants and orthotics consultant).
SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT
The Social Services Department establishes the first contact between the Help Center and the families of the intellectually disabled children. The Department studies the social and financial status of the children's families by conducting interviews and reviewing their official documents. Once the child is enrolled, the Social Services Department continues to be in close contact with the family, providing support and guidance programs through regular home visits, individual/group meetings and workshops with the child's parents, siblings and extended family members. The department also provides information about external services available at government and private sector facilities, as well as informing the parents about the rights of their disabled children in society.
