"A few years ago, Stacy (our team PT) and I made a connection with a local community pediatrician who had a special interest in autism. During that earlier visit, I went to this pediatrician's home, where she offered autism-related clinics and consultations.
This year, we had the opportunity to collaborate again. For the last two days, Stacy and I worked with this pediatrician to run a developmental clinic; this time, we were based out of the General Hospital (= air-conditioning!). The pediatrician offered appointments to families already on her caseload, in addition to posting an invitation to families who are a part of a developmental disabilities/autism shared chat on Zalo, Vietnam's social platform that combines chatting with facebook-like groups. Families came from a 200 km radius-- long trips for kids with developmental challenges.
Over the course of the two days, I met with 24 kids and their families. Fortunately, Stacy was with me to support families in understanding and addressing their children's physical activity needs and challenges! We both have a lot of experience wrangling kids, and had a great time working together again!"
