Family Support Group For Children With Rare Disorders
The association formed a Family Support group for parents of children with rare disorders so that families could support each other emotionally and advise each other on issues related to their children. Also, the association organizes medical/technical information, social, psychological, and rehabilitation services, and training to help families care for their children. The association sells assistive devices for families at a minimum cost. The families are encouraged to advocate for their children’s needs and create awareness among the community regarding children with rare disorders.
Since its inception, the Association of Early Intervention has been focused on providing splints and aids to children with disabilities. The workshop offers a range of services, including the provision of assistive devices and appropriate splints, modifications to overcome the challenges of performing various functions of the child, changing, or modifying tools and devices including chairs, wheelchairs, special seats, and tools used in everyday activities.
These modifications help provide comfort and adaptation for children with disabilities. The workshop can offer appropriate braces to correct medical deformities, stands, and newly developed technology to assess and provide specialized equipment to improve their quality of life.
The association provides other services for parents, such as:
Full assessments of children with disabilities
Intelligence screening (IQ)
Other assessments using a variety of tools
Providing educational, psychological, and rehabilitation counseling
Sports and entertainment programs
Educational, behavioral, and psychological programs
