1.1 Care in Daily Life
      Most of children come from malfunctioned families; therefore, they are slow in physical and mental developments. They need more love and professional attention. The SRCHMOHW provides eleven homes, based on children’s gender and age. Each home is set up as a family. The eleven homes are: Year Yuan, Dong Tsuen Le Xiao Zhu, Xi Tsuen Le Xiao Zhu, Dong Chen Xin Yuan, Xi Chen Xin Yuan, Dong Chuan Xin Tsai, Xi Chuan Xin Tsai, Dong Gen Yu Lu, Xi Gen Yu Lu, Dong Gen Xin Yuan, and Xi Gen Xin Yuan. Each home has two attendants. Each one takes turn to provide the children with the best twenty-four hour care. The attendants not only take care of the children’s daily life, but also visit children’s school when possible. They talk with the children every night before they go to sleep. The social workers and counselors also visit each home periodically to help the children who need extra guidance or consultations. The dietitians take care of children’s meal and nutrition.

1.2 Tutoring
       The SRCHMOHW has 148 children. Most of them are not performing well in school because of their family backgrounds. In order to improve their basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics in elementary and secondary schools so that they will learn happily, the center has done the following:

1

Work with Gui Chen Elementary School and Tsue Ying Middle School to provide additional tutoring for the learning disabled students.

2

Recruit college students form the South as volunteers to provide these slow performing children with after school tutoring.

3

Enlist retired teachers as volunteers to work with their slow performing or learning disabled students.

4

Review and give pre-test the children before standardized tests at school to build their self-esteem.

5

Provide each home with personal computers and access to the Internet. So the children can get information from Internet to do their homework and research.

 

1.3 Extracurricular Activities
      In order to promote their mental development, and to provide them with different learning opportunities, the center has many extracurricular activities such as computer classes, drawing, Origami, percussion music, cooking, orchestra, piano lessons, dancing, and conversational English. Specialists and volunteers teach these activities. The children enjoy them.

1.4 Outdoor Activities
      The SRCHMOHW holds many outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, birthday parties, and barbecuing. It also hosts many sport events and contests. The purpose is to keep the children entertained while enriching their life experiences.


2 Health Care
2.1
     In order to understand the children’s health condition, the SRCHMOHW give children complete physical exams when they are admitted. The center also provides children with routine dental check up, vaccination and health lessons so that every child can grow in a healthy and clean environment.

2.2
     Every other year the SRCHMOHW invites doctors from near by hospital to give children complete physical exams so that any disease can be diagnosed and cured as early as possible.

2.3
     In order to better understand the children’s state of mind, the SRCHMOHW works with psychiatrists, pediatricians and therapists from Kaohsiung Municipal Hospital and Kaohsiung Medical School to help children with mental and emotional problems. The center also works with social workers and psychologists from the hospital to conduct IQ test and counseling to the children.

2.4
     Because most of the children are either abandoned by their parents or have come from dysfunctional families, they lack parental care. Hence, they are slow in physical, emotional, social and speech development. The center actively works to promote early diagnosis and treatment.

1

The center refers slow developing children to the pediatricians in Kaohsiung Medical School Hospital for evaluation and treatment.

2

The center refers children to special treatment under the approval of the Medical Insurance Bureau.

3

The center invites retired special education teachers to teach the children on a one to one basis.


3 Individual Guidance
The SRCHMOHW provides guidance to each slow developing child so he or she can achieve his or her goal.

     From the first day that a child is admitted to the center, the teachers start to record his or her physical, emotional and social behaviors.

3.2 Regular School and Family Visit
     The guidance counselors in the center constantly keep in touch with children’s guardians and schoolteachers to understand children’s recent school performance and their family situation.

3.3 Special Workshop
     If a child has behavior problems and needs special guidance or treatment, the guidance counselors will work with social workers and childcare attendants, and hold a meeting for the special case. They also invite specialists or psychiatrist to study in individual case. This is to ensure that the child is provided with the best treatment.


4 Tracing And Continuous Guidance
     The SRCHMOHW terminates adoption when a child’s family situation improves, when a child graduates from high school, or when a family adopts a child. However, the center keeps track of the child after he or she leaves to make sure that he or she is still under good care. If necessary, the center will continue to provide additional support. Every year one the second Sunday of July is the family reunion day. The center invites all the directors, teachers, guidance counselors and the children who were in the center before. It is a good opportunity for them to share their experiences.
