Did you know that the Sisters Hospitallers in Cochabamba care for children with disabilities using the early stimulation model? We would like to introduce you to Mirtha Jiménez Ledezma, SIMAJ Technical Coordinator, Cochabamba, who tells us about early stimulation for children with disabilities, a comprehensive approach based on the hospital charism.  

How does SIMAJ work with children with disabilities?

In our Hospitaller institution we work through early stimulation, adapting the pedagogical methodology of María Tecla Artemisia Montessori, which is a set of practices designed to favour the integral development of children in their first years of life.

What is the importance of early stimulation for children with disabilities?

Early stimulation becomes an essential pillar for these children, as it contributes to the development of specific skills adapted to their individual needs. It also encourages the participation of the family in the intervention process, strengthening emotional bonds and creating a favourable environment for the child’s development.

In your experience with children with disabilities, what would you highlight about early stimulation?

Early stimulation for children with disabilities is an essential component of holistic development. By focusing on the child’s abilities and adapting strategies to their individual needs, we can provide them with the necessary tools to reach their full potential, such as promoting a participatory life in the social environment.

“With a comprehensive, charismatic, humanised and personalised approach, Early Stimulation becomes a beacon of hope, to build a brighter future for our children”.
