Rehabilitation professionals are needed to work with a group of 3-12-year-old orphans with severe intellectual and physical disabilities.
The work of the physical therapists includes reviewing each child’s physical therapy plan: assessing the child’s progress over the previous 6 months, altering their physical therapy plan to reflect any improvements or needed shift in focus. The carers then need to be trained on how to implement the physical therapy regime. Wider training to the orphanage staff is also required.
This opportunity is typically for two weeks every year, available in both March and September.
- Certified physical therapist
- Preferably a pediatric PT with specialization or at least experience in disability
- Some Mandarin a plus
