For the past 5 years a team of DIR model practitioners from the Netherlands (Ed, PPT, and SLP) have been traveling to South Africa to do voluntary work in a large institute for individuals with severe disabilities. The institute is drastically underfunded and resources are scarce. This scarcity has a serious impact on practice, including level of training/qualification of staff members. What do you do within these constraints? How much ‘theory’ do you share and which aspects of the model do you emphasize? Based on the level of theory you have chosen to share, how do you go about implementing the practical application of the model? In this presentation, we will present our process of reflection, flexibility, and adaptation to the specific needs and constraints of this particular setting in the South-African context.
