Rehabilitation Centre in Kraków
Rehabilitation_Centre_KrakowThe Polish Association of Knights of Malta has included among its goals the establishment of a facility which would provide assistance to children with disorders of the central nervous system, and their parents. The general principles governing the operation of this facility will be as follows:
1. The facility is to be a specialized center for the care of children with various developmental handicaps. Diagnostic and therapeutic care will be extended to children of Krakow and its environs.
2. The center will conduct two modes of operation:
a) Ambulatory care – we intend to provide care to about 50 families per week, with children in two age groups: those under 1 year old to be provided diagnosis, treatment and consultation; and those 1 – 3 years of age, who besides receiving the aforementioned services would also be organised into therapeutic groups in which the children would participate with their parents and therapist (3 to 4 groups each consisting of 4 families, meeting twice weekly). In addition, we intend to involve another 10 families in a weekly therapy by means of Home Video Training.
b) A day−care facility for pre−school children. The center will accommodate 36−44 children in several groups.
The permanent team of specialists will include doctors, special educators, psychologists, therapists, nurses, pre−school caregivers.
