May 2013 – Danli, Honduras

Six occupational therapists spent one week in Danli working at the community clinic that serves both children and adults with a variety of disabilities. Working side by side with the clinic therapy staff the Therapy Missions team saw approximately 110 patients during the week. In-services and workshops were held on topics including splinting, transfers and using play in therapy. The Therapy Missions team equipped and adapted an old playground next to a school for children with disabilities. Team members presented an evening on child deveopment to parents and grandparents at a local church. Teams of therapists made home visits to those clients who could not travel to the clinic. And time was spent at a “start-up” clinic in a rural community.
