A position is vacant for an Occupational Therapist at the Learning Resource Center, Cairo, Egypt
The LRC is a diagnostic/therapeutic medical unit that provides diagnostic and educational services to children and adolescents, who are experiencing learning difficulties and/or developmental problems. The LRC provides assessments, consultations, specialised therapies, and in-service training for schools and/or parents. Our multi-disciplinary assessment approach provides a comprehensive evaluation by certified professionals and produces information about the childs development and learning abilities. The assessment culminates in a parent conference and a report including detailed recommendations and a plan of action. We see children with many conditions including dyspraxia, down syndrome, autism, developmental delays, genetic disorders and other variety of disabilities.
Due to expanding caseloads, an opportunity has arisen for a senior occupational therapist experienced in pediatrics, to join our established inter-disciplinary team of physicians, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech & language pathologists, and educational specialists.
The post offered involves multi-professional assessment and treatment programs of children, and the implementation of occupational therapy programs through liaison with all staff involved in the childs remedial program.
