TAG’s Telehealth program, initiated in Kenya in March 2023, addresses the lack of access to therapeutic interventions for children (ages birth to 21) with disabilities in countries facing inclusivity challenges due to stigmas. Currently, 10 students ranging from 3rd-12th grade in Nairobi, Kenya receive communication therapy by a hired local therapy aid, who receives supervision from TAG volunteer U.S. based Speech-Language Pathologists. TAG professionals provide screeners, treatment plans, and targeted goals to support clients with their communication skills. This initiative empowers educators to acquire therapeutic skills under TAG’s supervision, promoting self-sustainability. Future plans involve expanding the program to include occupational therapy and mental health services.
In-person workshop for parents, teachers, therapists, and community leaders facilitated by TAG professional volunteers, covering topics around special education and creating inclusive environments for individuals presenting with developmental delays.
