Giving her thoughts of her experience volunteering for MTC: “ I have been looking for a long time for a place I could volunteer my time to. From the moment I attended their first fundraiser I was hooked. They took me in as part of the family, and their warmth is contagious. Every saturday we organize and manage the crafts, music and other activities. It is so rewarding when the children begin to warm up to you and bonds are formed. The program is run so well despite a lack in resources since they are solely dependent on donations. I leave the centre every saturday with a strong sense of happiness, the kids are my therapy.”
We would also like to acknowledge Leila and thank her for her time offered on a regular basis who gave cranio sessions to the children. Always so dedicated to the cause. And Titziana who began to volunteer her time as well at the centre with total devotion and passion.
The Major therapy program used at MTC comes from the MOHO concept. “Model Of Human Occupation”. It consists of therapy activities that fulfill volition, habituation, Interest, Functional and aims. To implement this concept physiotherapists need to have strong knowledge on human anatomy, neurology, bobath/ NDT, sensory integration and behavior approach, to name a few. Swimming
( Aquatic Actvity), Infra Red, TENS are also included, as well as cognitive exercises.
