Summary - Our Project Mission & Goal
Therapy Gym is the inspiration of Jordanian mother Jemman who, when going back to living in Amman, Jordan, found it difficult to obtain any play or therapy resources for her child with AUTISM. Frustrated by these lack of services she set about forming a registered charitable foundation ( AutismMena ) with the dream of providing a state of the art, not for profit, play and therapy centre for children with AUTISM in Amman, Jordan. The charity is in the process of forming, and with ongoing fundraising, dedication and commitment she aim to realise her dream by opening such a centre in the near future.
Those therapy gyms, provides toy, equipment, professionals and
environment specifically for families and friends of children on the spectrum.
And, since research shows that children with cognitive, emotional or social
limitations, including those with autism, are more prone to accidental
injuries, "Safe Play environment" relevant for children with autism
also are promoted in this specific campaign .
The primary goal of our occupational therapy team is to enable children with Autism participate in the activities of everyday life. The OT gym will assist in improving their physical capabilities by enhancing the individual child's ability to participate, by modifying the environment, or by adapting the activity to better support their participation.
Occupational therapy relies on understanding the importance of an activity to an individual, being able to analyze the physical, mental and social components of the activity, and then adapting the activity, the environment, and/or the person to enable them to resume the activity. Occupational therapists address the question, "Why does this child have difficulties managing his or her daily activities, and what can we adapt to make it possible for him or her to manage better and how will this then impact his or her health and well-being?"
Happy Days will achieve this by providing occupational therapy assessments and individual occupational therapy services at our fully equipped therapy gym.
Although most of the material in the blow list seems simple, we have given an explanation on why we believe it is crucial for the mental, social and cognitive development if the Autistic children
Sensory Rooms Services
Our sense of smell, taste, touch, sight and sound provide the foundation for our understanding and actions. It is only when one or a number of these senses are impaired that parts of the world around us become less accessible and our understanding is diminished.
This is why The Gym has the dedicated aim of helping to enrich and improve the quality of life of Special Needs children with our unique approach to Sensory Play. Sensory Rooms can meet a wide range of needs; from encouraging positive reactions for those with sensory impairment to promoting rest and relaxation for the agitated or stressed.
Music can be a motivating and fun way to reach all children, particularly children who have special learning needs. Music and play can improve communication skills in children - changing them from silent observers to verbal active partners. Here are some of the areas in which our Music Room will be able to assist children with special needs:
