They're Just Children

“They’re just children”, is a phrase I hear often, whether at our school or in church, when  a child or several children are doing what children do, being too loud, running where they shouldn’t run, or making a mess with food, drink, or other things. Or it is cultural. . . that is just how our culture is. In Geneva School we have been training our staff on how to keep the classroom under control and head off disruptions  before they get out of hand, and it’s paying off! Our classrooms are much quieter, and the teachers seem to realize the hard work of enforcing the rules is really worth it.  We know that children need boundaries and rules; they feel safe and secure and are able to mature and learn with the proper amount of discipline.  Without it, they easily rebel and act out and search for love and security in other ways. 

Right before school started this year, we realized we had a special needs child in first grade. He is unable to sit through class. He runs around the school unable to focus or concentrate. We do not know if he is autistic, but he certainly appears to have symptoms of autism or something on the autism spectrum. We, as a school, are trying to help his family seek a medical diagnosis and then work with them on therapy. 

One of our employees at Peru Mission has not one, but two children with severe autism. They have found a program that provides after school therapy and shadow teachers for one of the children. It is good that there were able to get the proper diagnosis and treatment, but it is almost cost prohibitive. There are no affordable options. Families who have these needs must work several jobs and often at the cost of serving the entire family unit.

For these reasons we have felt it necessary to create a fund for children with special needs. Here in Trujillo there is very little support and not a lot of information available for special needs children. We need to give these children and their parents guidance and hope in the midst of their struggles. Children are important to our Lord, and a vital part of our ministry here in Peru. We have set a goal to raise $7500 this year to create a fund for special needs children. Our hope is to offer help to those that need it. The parents would apply for funding and it would be granted per year. This could be for medical visits, diagnosis, and treatment. It not only will be a relief to the families of these special needs children, but also to our school as we work to come along side them in their education.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

However think of if you added some great photos or video
clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your
content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site
could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.
Fantastic blog!
