"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The setting up of this "Occupational therapy" unit would make it possible to provide 400 therapeutic sessions in a year at very nominal charges.

The OT program runs with a multidisciplinary team including Occupational therapists, physicians, nursing assistants, speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, special educators, and the parents, to identify the needs of the infants and toddlers and their families.

Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps infants, toddlers, and young children with a variety of conditions, congenital anomalies, neurological disorders, sensory processing difficulties, challenging behavior, neuromuscular disease, prenatal drug exposure, autism, etc. achieve independence in all facets of their lives. To give special needs children the "skills for the job of living" necessary for independent and satisfying lives.
