We had a very successful study tour to Ho Chi Minh City, to visit the Gia Dinh Special School and the physiotherapy department of Children’s Hospital No. 1.
Both facilities provide up-to-date interventions for children with disability and we got a lot of ideas for our own Centre. These ideas include the use of a sensory room, a social programme to support the parents who are often socially isolated, and a dedicated feeding programme to help children with oral problems. Many thanks to Co Khoi and Co Yen who run the 2 programmes for sharing their time and knowledge with us.
