Modules enrollment WTD
The course “What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child” is the first step to help a child with psychomotor retardation, spastic quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, problems with balance, movement problems, autism, seizures, behavior problems, learning problems, hyperactivity and Down syndrome.
The aim of the course is to prepare the parents so that they can use that knowledge to help their child heal. To develop a rehabilitation program the family must understand it and share it.
The Association presents the course “What to do About your Brain-Injured Child “for a period of 5 days, during which the parents, with the help of specialized staff, learn to understand and evaluate the injury of the child and learn to use the basic techniques for a rehabilitation project for their own child.
The course consists of over 50 hours of lectures, demonstrations and practical instructions concerning the growth and development of the brain-injured child.
