Conduct educational trainings on how to support children and adults with disabilities (neurological and physical). Trainings are conducted by OT's, SLP's, PT's, Developmental Pediatrician's, Special Education Teachers and specialist who serve those with disabilities. Topics are focused on behavior techniques, assistive daily living skills, communication skills, developmental milestones, sensory needs, fine and gross motor skills, importance of play, creating independence and community for adults with disabilities, taking care of the caregiver, teaching handwriting, teaching math & science, talking about sex and sexuality, etc.
Provide diagnostic assessment for developmental delays and medical conditions. These can be in the form of one to five day outreaches pending on need and location. These medical outreaches have primarily been conducted in remote areas of the Philippines. Fenixia coordinates these outreaches with local doctors and therapist and bring teams of volunteers from the US and Philippines together to make these outreaches happen.
Create opportunities for special needs families to network, socialize and enjoy themselves through social events and camp experiences. The camp experiences are leveraging Doctor Francis Dimalanta's "Prescription for Play" method of "SMART " (Sports, Music, Art, Reading & Theatre).
With the support of our partnerships in the Philippines and the US, we provide durable equipment (wheelchairs, standers, walkers, etc.) and low tech AAC (Augmentative Assistive Communication) devices to those in need.
Through generous donations we provide school supplies to underserve schools in the Philippines. This has allowed us to refurbish classrooms to provide sensory equipment, books, toy and anything a classroom may need. We have built one adult transition program classroom in Samal Island, Philippines and hope to build more in the near future.
Provide social outings for young adults with disabilities (neurological or physical) to be in the community doing fun activities together i.e., concerts, festivals, bowling, hiking, art, museums, zoo, etc. We are launching this in Palm Desert, CA and Davao City in 2023.
