Grant Reaps Rewards

In July 2016, Dr Oanh and her colleagues from Hanoi were successful in obtaining a small grant to support the establishment of a ‘Playing Club.’ This projects aim was to develop a small toy library, where parents can borrow and exchange toys. Dr Oanh had noted that many families did not have the resources to buy toys for children, or they were unsure what toys were appropriate. Alongside the toy library, parent coaching sessions are being developed. These sessions will be shared online. The goals of the sessions will cover topics including how to set targets for children, how to choose suitable toys, how to play with children. The online resources demonstrating play activities and language stimulation skills will mean that families who are unable to attend the direct face to face sessions can still benefit from the playing club.

Dr Oanh has been very pleased with the project’s progress to date. In addition to weekly hands-on coaching for three families, several workshops for parents and teachers of children with special needs have been completed in Hanoi, Vinh City and Vinh Phuc City. In each workshop between 30-70 participants attended and positive feedback has been received. The projects Facebook page has over 500 likes, indicating the details of the project are being shared far and wide. We look forward to the next update from Dr Oanh, including recommendations of how the project could be replicated in other areas of Vietnam.
