Many disabled people go through life never reaching their full potential. Without early and regular intervention, children with disabilities often develop secondary disabilities such as contractures, causing tremendous pain in adulthood. Many children who have the potential for communication, will never be able to talk, who have the potential for walking, will never be able to walk, who have the potential for learning, will never be able to learn.
Children with disabilities who hail from poorer backgrounds often do not have the opportunity to get the stimulation necessary if they are to reach their full potential. There are many organisations that care for children with disabilities. Charity organisations donate clothes, food, shelter, even therapeutic equipment. At Senecio we want to donate the one missing ingredient: Therapy, i.e. physio- occupational and speech therapy.
Senecio also wishes to operate as a facilitator in establishing communication between care centres and charitable organisations who supply the necessary tools for effective stimulation. Furthermore Senecio aims to empower unqualified caregivers with additional knowledge for better treatment of the disabled children.
|Senecio is a non-profit organisation that was started in 2008. At Senecio we wish to bridge the gap between people with disabilities who need therapy but do not have regular access to it due to financial and social circumstances, and therapists who wish to do the therapy, but cannot afford to work for free.|
