Project “Therapy Without Crying for children with special needs”

You are invited to participate in the Project “Therapy Without Crying for children with special needs” Organized by “Child potential development – Children’s rehabilitation office ” and Foundation “For Our Future”

We all are familiar with specialists’ statements such as: “Let the child cry now (during therapy sessions) to feel better”; as well as parents’ statements such as “It is for the child’s own good, let the child cry” Such statements prompt serious debates within the community of the parents of children with special needs as well as within the medical and non-medical specialists providing therapy for children with special needs.

The harsh approach of “by-any-means-at-specific-time” does not contribute effectively in attaining quality of therapeutic procedures. Alternately, the quality of therapeutic procedures can be achieved by establishing discipline with the children during therapy treatments through persistence, purposeful efforts as well as building up and maintaining habits. Highest positive physical and psychological long terms results from therapy treatment is achievable when the child is calm and fully concentrated on the actual movements and skills they learn.

We fully acknowledge the time limitations pressure of the therapeutic sessions and treatments affecting the therapists who are dedicate fully on helping and supporting the child. If the child continually cries during all the therapeutic procedures it is paramount to find the source of the problem and the reasons which prompt the child’s persistent crying. However, the key for improving the quality of life of both of the child and the child’s family is to establish whether the therapy process should continue on the expense of the crying child.

If you believe that, in order to achieve long-term positive and effective therapy results for the children with special needs, the therapy treatments must be conducted with great attention and with individually tailored approach to ensure as little crying as possible during treatment please take part in our project.
