June 2013 – Sanmenxia, China

For the third mission trip to the Welfare Center in Sanmenxia, China, six Therapy Missions’ therapists spent one week teaching and training the therapy staff and caregivers from the orphanage and other orphanages and hospitals that care for infants and children with disabilities. Teaching sessions were held each morning on topics that included understanding autism, understanding sensory processing disorders, managing behaviors, understanding the importance of play and encouraging language development. In the afternoon, the practical sessions were held to demonstrate with the children the ideas that were shared in the morning. Team members also spent time with the caregivers, demonstrating proper positioning, developmental stimulation for learning and feeding techniques.
