Faces of The Fellowship: Vania

Faces of The Fellowship: Vania


Natalya noticed that her three-year-old son Vania wasn’t communicating as well as other children his age, only speaking in two-word sentences. Doctors told Natalya that her son might be showing early signs of autism, but they wanted to wait until he was a little older to do more testing. In the meantime, Natalya takes her son to the Fellowship-supported Chamah Center for Child Development.

At the center, Vania has sessions with a speech therapist and an occupational therapist, and takes part in group learning activities with the other children.

Thanks to this special care, Vania’s communication has greatly improved and he’s on the path to enter school at the proper age.

Natalya is grateful to the excellent professionals at the center and to Fellowship friends around the world who made this transformation in her son possible.
