Help children with disabilities while volunteering in South India – requirements & tasks

We are located in the city of Dindigul in southern India.

Our organization has been working with India’s rural communities for over 20 years. 

We need volunteers in Early Intervention Center (63 children between the ages of 3 to 9 years), Special School for Intellectually Disabled & Autistic Children (63 children between the ages of 6 to 18 years), and a Home-Based programme.

Some of your tasks will include providing physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy as well as coaching children on daily living skills (DLS). You will be also supporting the transition of kids into mainstream school and helping them in practising sports. One of the most important responsibilities will be assisting families in the education of their children.

If you decide to take part in Home-Based programme you will be responsible for physiotherapy training and communication skills tutoring as well as coaching local volunteers on daily living skills (DLS). We also need your help in creating awareness in rural communities.
