New Contacts of the Institute for Medical Rehabilitation.

A group of 10 professional-rehabilitators, doctors, teachers, and social workers from the Lviv region visited USA on October 20 to November 10, 2002 as part of the program "The Community Connections", which is financed by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and by the Department of State, with the support of the USA Embassy in Ukraine.The group of the rehabilitators from Lviv in front of the Gallaudet University

An American volunteer organization "Legacy International" directed by Marlene Ginsberg and Ukraine based project "The Harmony" were responsible for program's organization and realization.

Matilda Babadahly, M.D. - scientific consultant with the Institute of Problems for Medical Rehabilitation participated in this program.

Educational and professional meetings, which took place in Washington and in other towns in the state of Virginia, were rather interesting and manifold. They focused on different aspects of social, medical, and special education help for disabled persons of different ages.

Meetings with professionals, who deal with problems of Cerebral Palsy treatments, were the most interesting. Participants of the program had an opportunity to learn about the organization and the results of American specialists' work in this area, and also to introduce their own materials (presentations, books, prospects, videos), which reflected the achievements of the Ukrainian rehabilitators, primarily the new technology of the intensive rehabilitation of CP - the Pr.V.Kozjavkin Method.

High level of scientific-practical research, fruitful discussions and a sharing of opinions and experiences took place in Washington at the meeting in the national office of "The United Cerebral Palsy Association", an organization actively working in the USA for more than 50 years with a branching system of its affiliates in 39 states.

It was very interesting to learn about the Children's Rehabilitation Center in Charlottesville, affiliated with the University of Virginia. The specialists' meeting was broadcasted on the local television station. The representative of Legacy International, the coordinator of the project Leila Baz was asked about the Ukrainian specialists' study.

A representative of the Ukrainian Institute of Problems for Medical Rehabilitation was also interviewed and spoke about the particulars of the new intensive rehabilitation system created in Ukraine.

A visit to the private rehabilitation centre, where specialists were able to sit in on classes of physiotherapists with children, ended with the discussion with the specialist on language pathology, the president of the center, Aditi E. Silversten. She was particularly interested in the information about the system of intensive rehabilitation in the early display of developmental delay, and how that helps to reduce not only motor deficit, but also to improves language development and psycho-emotional state of a child with organic brain damage.

Before departing from Virginia, Ukrainian specialists were invited to a Special Needs Symposium, where they heard several interesting reports about working with parents, social adaptation, and special inclusive education programs for children with special needs. They also saw exhibits from other rehabilitation centers.

A visit to the USA, getting acquainted with the system of state, public, non-profit and private institutions which help people with limited abilities is the beginning of a common dialogue and an important step for the American-Ukrainian cooperation aimed at the improvement and protection of our children's health.
