Shine On You Program

Introduction:

“Shine On You Program” is established to help the children’s home members who suffer from Speech Difficulty (a type of learning difficulty). Comprehensive and individualized professional speech assessment will be provided to the children. Once speech difficulty is diagnosed, appropriate constant treatment will be administered and support will be offered, with an intention that concomitant conditions can be rectified.

Due to the limited resources in the children’s home, children suspected and identified with speech difficulty are unlikely to receive further crucial assistance. Moreover, in some cases, even though children are diagnosed with speech difficulty, families might not be able to take effective and immediate remedial steps to deal with the situation.

As many speech difficulty children respond very well to early interference and right treatment at the right time, Sunshine Children Foundation would like to be the speech difficulty children’s pillar of support.

Your generous donation and support is a ray of sunshine for the children. http://www.sunshine-children.org/content/donation
