Over the years we have contributed to children’s assistance, financing specialist training for clinical personnel, and more recently we have supported rehabilitation projects with a focus on education.
The initiative has helped 10 children who benefited from the support of cognitive therapists twice a week for 44 weeks. The project’s activities were designed to stimulate areas of the brain associated with learning and to enrich the world of these children with cognitive and cultural experiences.
It was particularly important to extend rehabilitation activities normally associated with the scholastic learning context by adapting them to the needs of the children and of their parents who, during the long weeks of school lockdown, found themselves forced to teach and educate their own children.
In 2021 we decided to support TOG in the construction of the new site (known as “La città della fragilità”) that will open at the end of 2022. This will allow the foundation to accommodate around 200 children affected by complex neurological pathologies, from all over the north of Italy, in a spacious, harmonious and totally accessible environment.
In addition to the many activities offered by the existing centre of excellence, the rehabilitation programme will be further extended thanks to the construction of:
- a therapeutic pool
- a fabLab for digital aid fabrication
- an area dedicated to training and scientific research
- a rehabilitation area with eye tracking technology
- clinics for the treatment of specific disorders
