International China Concern

International China Concern (ICC) is a Christian development organization that works with the lost and forgotten, China's abandoned and disabled and we are calling all Physical Therapists.  Are you passionate about your field?   Are you looking to use your experience in a new way, impacting children in a different culture or across the world?  

ICC is looking for PTs with a heart to give into the life of abandoned and disabled children in China. Every day you would form part of an interdisciplinary team, drawing deep on your knowledge and experience to see the lives of children improved - you would be involved in discussions with the child at the centre of every decision; completing evaluations; drawing out from verbal and non verbal special people, in unique ways, their hopes, dreams and goals that will lead them towards a life of purpose and fullness.

The Physiotherapist in Changsha would assess and arrange therapy programs and activities for children and young people with disabilities, order and fit equipment as required for 24 hour positioning, support the training of local therapists, and provide consultation for families and caregivers of children with disabilities in areas related to their professional field and experience.  The therapist may be invited to support with consultation around the design and adaptation of environments to ensure accessibility.  This position may straddle several projects within the Changsha area. 

You may also facilitate the short term visits of other therapy professionals for training purposes. He/she will advise senior management regarding therapy needs of the children, and training needs of the staff.

The work would be with children who are abandoned, and those living with their families.  Work is within therapy centres, and within homes through home visitation.

Life with our little and not so little munchkins will touch your heart and you will probably never want to return home!
