"Tomás has a rare syndrome, IFAP, in which he always needs therapeutic follow-up to bridge his developmental gap. The Early Intervention appeared in our lives and helped Tomás to learn to play and to be as autonomous as possible.
My thanks to all the people at FIR who accompanied him and provided my son with moments of tenderness and happiness."

"For me, the CAO is my second home. This is where I have fun and spend my days with my colleagues and friends. At CAO we are made aware of how important we are in society and in life. There are many young people who are in the same situation as us and don't have that support."

"With the Inclusive Holidays there was continuity with what was being done at school, which worked very well. Rodrigo has already reduced his medication, went back to sleep, started asking for cuddles and lots of love. Now he can stand in line and wait a long time, go to the movies, water parks, etc. He feels comfortable with the children and the monitors, and even sought them out to go with him on outings, even when he was with his mother. They helped Rodrigo and me (mom) a lot, because I was extremely nervous and didn't know how to help Rodrigo on vacation and I was able to rest a bit. From what I saw, there was a lot of Empathy and Inclusion. They made Rodrigo very happy. Thank you."
