Tamra Childhood Center

Praktikum und Volunteering möglich
The Childhood Centre provides psychological and physiotherapeutic care like all day speech and movement therapies, to children who are slower in their development than usual, as well as children with motor or language impairments such as stuttering. We organise internships and volunteer work in the fields of developmental psychology, speech therapy and physiotherapy.

Project Details

The Childhood Centre is listed in the Community Centres of Tamra and caters to children between three and twelve years. The children usually attend private counseling sessions, often accompanied by a parent; there is also the option of group therapy. The professional staff try to analyze the reasons for the child's impairments and treat them. The children don't have any mental or physical handicaps; the causes behind their deficits are in most cases, psychological.
There are 13 female professionals working in the center, including a speech therapist, psychologist, physiotherapist, and 4 social workers. The social workers look into the social environment of the children to identify causes for the developmental deficits of the children and try to eliminate possible negative factors.
An internship/volunteer placements at the Tamra Childhood Centre is possible in the subject areas of child psychology, speech therapy and physiotherapy. The parents of the children, however, have to agree that you as an intern/volunteer are allowed to be present during the therapy of their child, and they don't always do this. Most of the professional staff speak English, but you should be able to organize yourself and it is an advantage to try to learn some basic Arabic to understand what's going on at the busy centre. As a volunteer/intern you can also just generally spend time with the children, for example, playing with them.
Besides the therapy, the Childhood Centre offers activities every day, including karate, aerobics, zumba and English (on Fridays). Around 200 children regularly attend the centre.
For students of Social Work and Psychology, it is also possible to do a tutored internship at Nowaideia and at the schools (see "Primary and Secondary Schools in Tamra"). You can also opt to combine internships.
