Purposeful Therapeutic Activities for Wheelchair Users and Children with Special Needs in Celebration of the International Day for Persons with Disabilities – Change Towards Safe Environment

3rd year students from the Department of Occupational Therapy at the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Jordan, under the supervision of the activities coordinator Dr. Hassan Sarsak and the supervisor Mrs. Wafa Ramadan, participated in a community-based activity titled "Purposeful Therapeutic Activities for Wheelchair Users and Children with Special Needs in Celebration of the International Day for Persons with Disabilities – Change Towards Safe Environment” on Thursday 14/12/2017 at Al Hussein Society Jordan Center for Training & Inclusion. The activity included a variety of meaningful games, such as memory, visual-perceptual, and sensory-motor games. The purpose of this activity was to integrate wheelchair users and children with special needs with the community and the occupational therapy students. It also aimed to improve self-confidence, sense of achievement, level of satisfaction, and increase awareness of both families and interdisciplinary team members at the center about the vital role of occupational therapy in enhancing the capabilities and excellence for this important population in our community. Over 60 wheelchair users and students with physical disabilities aged from 6 to 10 years old participated in this activity.
