Zaporizhzhia Association Of Parents Of Children With Special Needs And Persons With Childhood Disability “Nadezhda” (Hope) was founded in 1991 by parents themselves. The director Aleksandrova Irina Pavlovna, whose daughter suffers from infantile cerebral paralysis, is well aware of problems of bringing such children up. Almost the whole staff of the organization consists of parents of children with special needs, that’s why they are very sympathetic to the needs of those families who ask for their help. When a disabled child is born into a family the couple’s family life passes a special test of strength. Isolation and lack of support have detrimental effects both on parents and their child. Many parents of children with different kinds of disability are constantly depressed. The “Nadezhda” centre offers an opportunity to overcome these complications, to get acquainted with other parents, to get expert advice and to restore the family emotional well-being in time. The most important thing is not to lose hope that the child will be able to recover and develop his\her potential abilities. Today 1,050 families of children with special needs unite in this social organization. The “Nadezhda” centre helps families where there are children with any kinds of disability.
