This program of intensive physical and psychological therapy serves 54 children aged 0-3 years old. The therapy is designed to increase psycho-motor development in young handicapped children so they can develop to their fullest potential in mainstream schools and society. The program also trains and supports the parents of handicapped children to prevent child abandonment.
