Side by Side Early Intervention Centre is a registered Section 21, Non-Profit organization since 2013. We provide various services and support to more than 180 children with disabilities and their families.
Side by Side employs 9 staff which include caretakers, day-care providers, home trained therapists, a therapeutic reflexologist, a social worker, and a project manager. We are also very excited about Jani Burger, an Occupational therapist who will be joining our team from January 2021.
The volunteers are a Physio Therapist, 2 Occupational Therapists, an Intern Counsellor, a Music therapist, and several German volunteers.
Two of our staff members are enrolled with NAMCOL doing a certificate in ECD (Early Childhood Development). A 3rd staff member is enrolled to start in 2021.
Our vision and mission are as follows:
Through ADVOCACY we hope to strengthen services of EARLY DETECTION, EARLY INTERVENTION, AND COMMUNITY-BASED REHABILITATION.
We believe that every child with a disability has the right to:
A healthy, educated, and informed family Easy Access to Medical Support Easy access to equipment Easy access to therapy
Social and education inclusion
