Children with Special Needs
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) reported in 2009, around two thirds (67%) of children with a disability required assistance with day to day activities. Around half (48%) of all children with a disability required assistance with cognitive or emotional activities such as decision making or thinking through problems, coping with feelings or emotions, and making friendships, maintaining relationships or interacting with others. Other activities that children with a disability might have required assistance with included communication (39%), mobility (32%), self-care (28%) and health care (25%). The Zen's campaign to holistically support children with special needs through 1:1 care or group specialised programs is to provide an opportunity for families to explore new ways that their children can improve their overall sense of wellbeing. Through this program we also address the impact that caring for children with special needs has on the parents or primary care giver and offer our services where it is needed on a case by case basis.
