Program Description:
KayaEcuadorIntegratedTherapyIntegrated Therapy for Children with Disabilities and Learning Difficulties 

Volunteer in Ecuador on this integrated therapy project for children with disabilities and learning
difficulties and use your creative, dance and therapy skills to help others. This project was set up
over 20 years ago to offer support to children who are often unsupported in society. This
integrated therapy centre calls on its dedicated, multidisciplinary team to help children with its
broad spectrum of services: from early stimulation for those with learning difficulties, to physical
rehabilitation, and language therapy. Young adults have also been incorporated into the
programme.

There are now a number of different programmes in place to address the needs of a diverse range
of children, as the project has responded to the demand in the Quito area. Activities include music
therapy, an academic art program, therapeutic care, a day care programme and a summer
project. Apply your caring nature and creating talents to help the local team to run and develop
this stimulating program for children with disabilities and learning difficulties in Ecuador.

As there are a number of programs at the center, volunteers may help with the following:

• academic artistic program - supporting children aged 12+ with learning difficulties in arts, music,
reading, other academic disciplines, computers and sports activities
• therapeutic art program - supporting children aged 12+ with music, art, dance and craft activities
• day care project - working with children over 12 plus young adults, focussing on life skills, group work,
conduct and developing autonomy
• learning therapy - older children and young adults developing educational performance to give
students the chance to be involved in possible employment activities
• musical development - develops creativity with children under 12
