March 2013 – Kingston, Jamaica

Therapy Missions returned to Jamaica with 16 occupational and physical therapists to work at 6 Mustard Seed Orphanages throughout the country. Teams of therapists spent the week at each orphanage working side by side with the therapy staff and caregivers. The emphasis for this mission was on the establishment of daily individual and group activities for the residents. Adaptive communication devices and adaptive toys were made. At the orphanage that houses the adults, a team set up work and recreational programs for the residents. Workshops were held on the management of children with cerebral palsy and sensory processing disorders. Training of the staff continues through weekly meetings on Skype.
