Daycare center for special needs children operates in Armenian province

PanARMENIAN.Net - With the support of VivaCell-MTS, children rehabilitation and daycare center opened in March at Armenak and Ann Tadevossian’s Medical Center in Kosh, Aragatsotn province of Armenia. The daycare center is intended for children with mental, physical, psychological-sociological, cognitive and behavioral problems.

The center now provides meals for the attending children and the staff twice a day and has furnished bedrooms. At the moment the center hosts 40 children: 26 of them come from villages and the rest 14 come from towns. In total, during 2013-2014 VivaCell-MTS has provided to the Center AMD 23,850 million, a press release says.

“We are glad to cooperate with the Center where children with special needs get the consistent professional treatment they need We believe that more positive results and progress can be reached if these children feel that they are surrounded with care, attention and support, which are the most important things when dealing with children in general,” said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.

The rehabilitation services are provided by a joint effort of a group of professionals of various specializations and give the children with limited abilities an opportunity to receive comprehensive medical, psychological and pedagogical treatment.

The center offers the following medical services: Hydrotherapy; Physiotherapy; Occupational therapy; Speech and language therapy; Pedagogical consultancy for children with special needs; Psychological consultancy

Apart from the individual treatment, the children take part in group classes, which are held in comfortable playrooms. Besides, owing to VivaCell-MTS an outdoor playground was created in the daycare center, where the children enjoy their leisure time under the constant care of specially trained nurses.
