Project Description

Embrace Diversity Organisation provides holistic and therapeutic sessions to kids and youths with disabilities, where they practice life skill in group sessions. The organisation is run voluntarily by 4 parents who all have kids with disabilities. They also have a team of experienced tutors, therapists and carers, with their aim being to provide a second home to their members where they enhance their skills to their full potential.

Unfortunately, most of the community has sever physical disabilities, with there being a lack of financial support and a need for there to be new and upgraded physiotherapy equipment.

Embrace Diversity Organisation wishes to create a state-of-the-art physio room giving kids and youths with physical disabilities the best opportunity to enhance their well-being, offering an array of services which would be innovative for Malta, this being the first centre of its kind locally. They wish to introduce the latest trends and techniques in the form of spider cage, thera suit, thera togs along with other physical therapy treatments.

THE IMPACT

Children with cerebral palsy; genetic, sensory processing or muscle tone disorders; Down syndrome; spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries; can benefit from:

  • Learning new and correct patterns of movement
  • Meeting functional goals at an accelerated rate as compared to traditional therapy
  • Improving independence with daily activities like self-care, feeding and dressing
  • Improving body awareness and motor skills
  • Improving balance and coordination
