This placement offers you a fantastic opportunity to gain in depth knowledge regarding how local procedures and patient support are comparable to your past experiences in these areas. Specific treatments used at our physiotherapy placement include respiratory physiotherapy, postural re-education, acupuncture and pre-natal services. Psychomotricity activities, reading techniques and vocabulary stimulations are some of the treatments offered to patients for Speech Therapy. It is recommended that volunteers interested in these placements can speak a basic level of Portuguese, or are confident at speaking Spanish.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so there is no firm deadline for applications. Some countries and projects require at least three months to process an application, arrange for visas, and advise you properly on how to prepare. Other countries can be processed in as little as three weeks. Whenever you are thinking of traveling, we encourage you to apply as early as possible. Having more time to prepare makes it easier for you to fundraise, and for us to advise you on preparations. It also makes more options available for tailoring a program to your individual interests and preferences.
