Training of therapy staff from Fundacion Integra (Juarez, Mexico)
In the Fall of 2007 and the Spring of 2008, two therapy staff from the Fundacion Integra Clinic were flown to Rhode Island where they each spent a week visiting continuing the training that had taken place in Juarez. Patricio, a physical therapist, went on home visits, visited a school program and was able to view a large donation of equipment from a Rhode Island company that was heading to his clinic.
Paloma, a staff therapist, visited a school for children with disabilities and a clinic where she learned about creating a sensory room. Both staff left after the week with strategies for therapy and ideas for activities that would benefit their clients in Juarez.
Training a mission team in wheelchair measurement
In November of 2012, a volunteer mission group from New Jersey traveled down to Jamaica to spend the week at the Mustard Seed TheOrphanages. Their mission was to measure over 200 children and adults for a donation of wheelchairs that would be arriving in the Spring of 2013. Without any therapists on this mission, the group needed to be trained in how to measure individuals for a proper fitting wheelchair. Therapy Missions provided a course on wheelchair measurement via Skype and provided guidance to the team throughout the week.
Showing a group of administrators from Jamaica possible programs for people with disabilities
In February, 2014 Therapy Missions brought 3 administrators from the Mustard Seed Community Orphanages in Jamaica to Rhode Island for a week of training and on site visits to a variety of settings that included a private occupational clinic, a school for children with disabilities and an adult day care program. The women saw first hand the possibilities of participation in meaningful activities for people with disabilities.
