Founded by a mother of a special needs child, L.U.C.C.A Support & Care Centre opened its doors in May 2014. After being exposed to numerous Centres and Facilities over the past 6 years, trying to find the “right” place for my son Lucca, has been challenging. We have encountered so many wonderful people over the past years whom have had a huge impact on Lucca’s progress but as a mother of a special needs child there has always been that “something” that has been missing. I have spent many years doing research on the approach, learning methods, therapy intervention and communication methods available for our children BUT what I realised is that we as parents of special needs children seem to expend great efforts on trying to find out how we treat the brain or the body of our children with disabilities that we sometimes lose sight of their hearts and minds.
Would it not be wonderful to know as a parent of a special needs child, that your child’s heart comes first before anything else.
Children with disabilities are children first; the care and love they need is exactly the same as the care typically developing children need.
