Father Ray School for Children with Special Needs
In 2007 a young mother came to us for help. In her arms she carried her young son, she did not know what condition her son had, all she knew was that he was different from other children.
Prior to the opening of the Father Ray School for Children with Special Needs, for many children living with autism, Downs syndrome, cerebral palsy or an intellectual disability in the Pattaya area there was no support.
There was no facility where they could receive the therapy they needed to improve their lives.
There was no school they could attend where they could be educated, where they could gain knowledge and learn new skills according to their age and ability.
There was no one who could give advice to the family, or provide them with the support they need.
Today the Father Ray School for Children with Special Needs offers physiotherapy, occupational therapy, age and ability appropriate education, sports and art therapy, vocational training and family support.
