Complementary programs

Everybody’s mission

Thanks to our resource centers located in Guatemala City, Quetzaltenango and Huehuetenango, we have complementary programs for all of our students, for students who attend FUNDAL educational centers and for those who attend public or private schools.

Both for students who attend FUNDAL and for those who attend other public or private schools, we have supporting programs available in Guatemala City, Quetzaltenango and Huehuetenango.

Communication Therapy

We use multimodal communication that allows each student to connect with others through alternative communication systems (Braille, sign language, visuals, technology, calendar boxes, referent objects, spoken language, etc.)

Sign Language Courses

Qualified instructors offer classes to FUNDAL’s internal educational community as well as to the external public.

Physical Therapy

Allows the development of motor skills essential for everyday life

Occupational Therapy

Supports the development of independent living skills, work, study, sports, play and free time.

Sensory Integration

A service aimed at students who need help with processing and organizing stimuli from their environment. This includes the use of our fully equipped sensory integration rooms and the implementation of sensory diets.

Orientation and Mobility

Students learn to move around safely, using techniques created for people with visual impairments. This includes the use of a cane, movement using mind maps, reference points, location of utensils when eating or cooking, getting around in the city, use of self-protection techniques, sighted guide technique or interpreter guide.

Adaptive Technology

Used to complement the learning process, with specific software for the population with disabilities. This includes the use of computers, tablets, and cell phones.

Adapted Designs

A carpentry space where corrugated cardboard and other supplies are recycled and used to make furniture, adaptations for postures, and communication systems that are customized for the specific needs of each student. They provide the same function as products available for purchase, but at a much more accessible cost.

Psychology

Especially for parents, guardians or assistants of students who attend FUNDAL. Includes individual therapy, group therapy, parenting classes, and special activities.

Social Work

Each student and their family are provided with the necessary support for a successful habilitation and rehabilitation process.

Workshops

FUNDAL is dedicated to the training and awareness of teachers in the public and private sectors, students of related careers, businessmen and the general public. Training and awareness on issues of deafblindness and multiple disabilities associated with sensory disabilities, is carried out to promote educational, social, cultural and recreational inclusion for children and adolescents with these disabilities.
