The Boeing grant

You are here

We are pleased to announce The Boeing Company, GCC grant award aimed to provide educational support to the families in Russia raising children with Down syndrome of 3-6 years old having behavior and psychological difficulties, and families in difficult social situation. This is the fourth Boeing grant we operate to address the needs of a child and his or her family in the areas such as relationships between child and parents, child and teachers, and others. Children will attend educational group sessions separately from their parents and learn to act unaided by them. While children are at the session, parents attend a parent support group run by a psychologist. The project will last till June 2015.
