Rehabilitation for The Disabled


Mission and Tasks

1.    The psychological assessment of children with neurodevelopmental disorders. The evaluation process includes measures of cognitive level and examines children’s   socio-emotional development. The evaluation findings are taken into account by the multi-disciplinary team during the setting of intervention goals for each individual case. The validity of our assessment techniques is guaranteed by a high level of clinical expertise, the constant up-dating of scientific knowledge  and the use of psychometrical instruments that are adapted to the specificities and constraints of children with disabilities.  Child disability in the family life-circle  is  viewed through a conceptual perspective which incorporates elements from cognitive psychology, systemic thinking and developmental neuropsychology.     

2.    Supporting the families of children with neurodevelopmental disorders.   Counseling services for parents and siblings.   Intervention programs for disabled children and for their parents using group dynamics (in association with ELEPAP’s social workers and special educators).

3.    Co-operation with ELEPAP’s resident child psychiatrist in a continuous effort to promote the mental health of disabled children and   to facilitate the management of family stress.

4.    Co-operation with state agencies (Ministry of Education) for the implementation of school inclusion programs concerning children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
