I’m Ukrainian who would like to ask for help for the Ukrainian Speech Therapy Center for children with special needs, located in Kiev. The center specializes in the evaluation and treatment of children from age 2 to 15 with complex developmental disabilities.
Diagnoses the speech therapy center works with -
• Autism and ASD
• Down's Syndrome
• Articulation Disorders
• Delayed language and mental development
• Speech delay (alalia)
The “LU Club” center was set up about a year ago by the speech therapist, Sheremet Liubava. She worked extremely hard... putting her heart into this place where kids can feel comfortable and safe. She rented the office, bought lots of interesting and useful materials, purchased toys and specialized equipment. The therapist spent a lot of money on the center, its content and resources; however, now the center needs additional funding in order to develop and improve i and to provide equipment for classes. The prices of their classes are very low and the class cost doesn’t cover all expenses. The rental costs have increased since the center opened and they can no longer afford to keep it operational without assistance.
Each year, the number of children with Autism increases. They would also like to implement sensory integration and ABA therapy into their training. Currently, they can only utilize a small portion of their offerings due to lack of funds.
I know that the specialists have a strong will to go further and help families in these difficult and hard times for Ukraine.
Please consider donating so the founders and specialists will be able to keep their doors open and offer vital speech therapy services for these children with special needs.
