April 2019 – Kingston, Jamaica – Early Stimulation Program

The team for this second full-week mission to the Early Stimulation Program consisted of Occupational and Physical Therapists and a counselor-psychotherapist.   Based in Kingston, the team also visited two other ESP sites in Jamaica, including a newly opened program in Montego Bay. At the sites, the team worked side by side with the staff, teachers and parents evaluating and sharing treatment options for the young children with a variety of disabilities.  Some therapist joined the program officers on home visits for the very young children while others worked at the school with the teachers for the pre-school aged children. Sensory activities, proper positioning, daily hygiene and alternate communication were just some of the topics that were addressed during this mission.
