CHIA’s Disability Support Program

Disability services in Vietnam are extremely limited, leaving most families incapable on of seeking assistance for their child.  Many obstacles arise on a daily basis when having a child with a disability, which can ultimately lead to family hardships and mental health issues.  Once medical, physical therapy or daycare is arranged; a finical burden closes in on the family leading to even greater issues.

Support Program Breakdown:

  • Home visits to provide practical assistance to improve the quality of children’s lives including interior modifications for interdependent living;
  • Providing supportive seating, wheelchairs and other mobility devices, prostheses and orthotics devices
  • Teaching ‘Practical and Life Skills’ to the children and the parents to maximize physical, social and intellectual development
  • POD (Program of Development) day program provides physical, social and intellectual development to children between the ages of 1-7. CHIA helps the children who will attend school to maximize their confidence and abilities.
  • Ongoing therapy for children with physical disabilities who attend POD and in the villages

Due to the lack of disability support services, CHIA puts a strong emphasis on helping and training parents to provide basic treatment and therapy in their home.
