A.P.R.I.M - "Association des Parents pour la Réhabilitation des Infirmes Moteurs" is a day care centre which has been created in 1987. It caters for children and young adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. The association is non-profit making and is duly registered with the Registrar of Association and a member of the National Council for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled (NCRD), MACOSS and EDYCSS. Today, there are 31 people with disabilities who are admitted at APRIM aging from 8 to 40 years old. Most of them are challenged with cerebral palsy; a condition involving disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture that is caused by injury or abnormal development in the immature brain, most often before birth.

Our Association provides treatment, specialized education and rehabilitation for our students. We also assist parents in counseling, training and psychological support to help them cope with the difficulties in looking after their children.

Our main stronghold has been the human resource element whereby the teachers and parents together provide the advice, care, love and security which are so essential to the well being of each and every student.

The NGO in the meantime catered for 31 beneficiaries by 5 teachers, Health professionals which consist of 2 Occupational Therapists, 1 Speech Therapists and aid volunteered parents to take care of our needy according to their basic activities of daily living (BADL). We have 2 drivers for the transportation to and from the institution, 2 volunteers and 10 accepted placements from the UOM yearly for the health professions (Occupational and Physio Therapists).

Role of our Health Professionals

 

Occupational Therapists

The primary aim of the Occupational Therapists is to provide rehabilitation to those students challenged with physical and cognitive disabilities. Occupational therapist and proper assistive devices can help them to improve their autonomy in their daily activities. Occupational Therapist provides individualized and group sessions everyday at APRIM to improve the positioning and prevent further deformities of children with disabilities.

The Sensory room enhances the well being of adolescents and young adults by providing them with a pleasant environment where the distractions of the outside world are completely absent. The persons are presented with music, attention grabbing moving colours and shapes and then, add the ability for the person to actually make things happen that are so dramatic that they cannot be missed. Building blocks of real progress are then noted.
