Development of Center For Early Intervention In Rovinj
Back in 2019, an enthusiastic team of various experts from Rijeka and Istria started developing the idea of establishing an Early Intervention Team for children with neurological risks and developmental difficulties at the Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Hospital in Rovinj. Despite numerous challenges the team is boldly moving forward. At the time when many things seemed impossible (the beginning of the pandemic), united in the mission to succeed, the extraordinary leadership of the Hospital provided funds from the Istrian County and numerous donators. The Team, consisting of pediatrician, speech therapist, psychologist, educational rehabilitator and occupational therapist started to work in August 2020. The Hospital already had specialists in physical and rehabilitation medicine and with the functional connection of Rovinj’s Hospital with Children’s Hospital Srebrnjak in Zagreb, the clinical support of neuropediatricians was also provided. The last phase of development, planned for 2022, refers to the opening of a children's rehabilitation department that not only contributes to better quality of services but also sustainability and the possibility of long-term monitoring and provision of therapeutic services to patients in their local community.
