Sascha costs at hill top. The winter sun will stick together eyes, frosty air pinches from time to time cheeks, in a face the cold wind blows … A little more — and it will depart on a slope down, speeding up on each turn that on the finish to arrive the first and once again to become the best. These seconds before start — the most favourite and important points life Sashina. If it could — would stretch hands, having lifted the head highly towards to the sun, and would cry very loudly with happiness … But Sascha has no hands. It concentrates, having pressed a cult to a body, and begins movement on the mountain-skiing route … Seventeen-year Alexander Akhmadulin — the master of sports on mountain skiing, the member of Paralympic Russian national team of 2014, the pupil of the children’s house boarding school for children with physical defects of the city of Dmitrov of the Moscow region.

Sascha has achieved amazing results in such difficult sport! At the beginning of 2014 it will go on Paralympic games to Sochi, and recently, during procession of Olympic flame along the country, bore a torch across native Dmitrov on a level with the most deserved people of Moscow area. The young man — the numerous winner of the championships of Russia, the prize-winner of the international competitions in Italy, Austria, Switzerland (far not each "house" child at his age has visited so many countries!), the participant of the Cup of Europe and the World Cup on mountain skiing. But that it is even more amazing, in the Dmitrovsky children’s house boarding school for disabled people Alexander Akhmadulin such not one.

Towards to the Olympic Games

«Our ten pupils are engaged in mountain skiing at child youthful sports school of the Olympic reserve of "Shukolovo"? — the director of orphanage Nadejda Ignatovich tells.? — And six more — big tennis on carriages on courts of Dmitrov». The result of serious and laborious trainings — is results which pupils of orphanage at regional, All-Russia and international competitions show. So, Vladimir Egorov along with Alexander Akhmadullinas also the member of a national team of the Russian Federation on mountain skiing in the ranks of which participated in qualifying international tournaments.

Three more mountain skiers have the category of candidates for the master of sports. Besides, one of pupils — tennis-player-kolyasochnitsa Victoria Lvova (she also was a fakelonosets during "passing" of Olympic flame across Moscow area) — the numerous winner of the international championships in this sport. «And still she is the real beauty and the big clear head — studies on "perfectly"? — Nadejda Ignatovich praises the girl. The region on advantage appreciates merits of children — seven of them receive a nominal grant of the governor of the Moscow region.

And all has begun in  2007 when trainers have come to orphanage from Shukolovo sport school on mountain skiing Nadejda Chernova and Natalia Brusova. «We have suggested to organise occupations for children, have had a talk with children, have looked at their abilities, together with doctors, medical workers, teachers, psychologists of orphanage have selected the first group»? — Nadejda Chernova remembers.

Since then orphanage and sport school collaboration has begun: three times a week children accompanied by the PE teacher or the tutor leave on trainings. First with equipment and sport stock of children from children’s home provided the ministry of social protection of the population of the Moscow region, then, when pupils have included in structure of the national team of Moscow area, and then and Russia, all necessary allocates sport committee.

«I have seen Sascha Akhmadullina’s potential at once? — trainer Natalia Brusova tells.? — But also at once has understood that work is necessary to us serious: as any teenager, Alexander was the boy capricious, impudent, it was necessary to work hard to explain, what should be character of the real purposeful athlete». But today Sascha Akhmadulin without occupations by mountain skiing of the future does not think: «Only at competition has made a speech — and again it would be desirable on training … Happens that I lose, but I aspire to be the first always! To win the Olympic Games, and then to become the trainer and to learn to go for a drive on mountain skiing same, as I, children».

Games against diseases

Today in the Dmitrovsky house boarding school there live 99 pupils with various violations of the musculoskeletal device. «For our children physical culture and sports — it not only pledge of health, but also tools for formation of firm and purposeful character which very much is useful to them in life — is considered by Nadejda Ignatovich.? — Therefore we pay to physical preparation very close attention». In the equipped sports hall of school besides gym classes pass occupations of various sports sections (tennis, a darts, chess, draughts, billiards, бочча), sports holidays and competitions. Now children master new game — "Novus".

The physical culture and sports, undoubtedly, help children with limited possibilities of health and to be socialised, integrating them into Wednesday of ordinary "house" children «. Besides, at pupils bases of natural types of the impellent actions are formed, helping then freely to operate the impellent acts entering into educational and labour operations»? — Nadejda Ignatovich notes.

In sports also pupils of other six orphanages for disabled children that are in the territory of Moscow area actively are engaged. For example, in the Kolomna children’s house boarding school the team on adaptive boat racing is created. Children took more than once prizes in the championships of the Moscow region, Russia and even on world championships. In general to rehabilitation of disabled people by means of sports in the region it is paid much attention. « This year our disabled athletes have taken part in 54 All-Russia and the international competitions? — Olga Zabralova, the minister of social protection of the population of the Moscow region has emphasised.? — And  structures of national teams of Russia include 89 disabled athletes from Moscow area». But, according to the minister, the care of disabled children, of families in which they are brought up, is the most important direction of social policy of the government of the region.

Treatment and training

And it is correct, after all such children need special attention. Having physical restrictions, they quite often become reserved, cannot adapt to environment … Specialists of the rehabilitation centres help them not only to overcome themselves, but also the illness, and to parents — to find hope and belief — in itself and in the child.

In rehabilitation of disabled children in the Moscow region are engaged in 27 rehabilitation centres and 21 rehabilitation offices. «Here children can receive social and medical services (massage, LFK, physiotherapy, galokamer , etc.), social and pedagogical (logopedics and defectology, training to skills of self-service, assistance in mastering by programs of correctional or comprehensive school), and also social and psychological and welfare services»? — Olga Zabralova has told.

There are in Moscow area and own, developed by local experts, projects of rehabilitation of children of which the area very much is proud. So, since  April, 2013 in the Sergiyevo-Posadsky municipal area on the basis of the rehabilitation centre "Optimist" the pilot project on introduction in work of rehabilitation establishments of a new form of social service — rendering of rehabilitation services to disabled children at home is realised. In the centre the mobile team of experts into which enter the instructor of LFK, the nurse on massage and physiotherapy, the teacher-logopedist, the teacher-defektolog, the teacher-psychologist, the expert in social work is created. For the organisation of exit rehabilitation process establishment has acquired the necessary equipment and motor transport with the lift. Specialists of service leave daily to 10 children within three months, now such courses «rehabilitations at home» have passed more than 30 children having serious violations in development.

And in August of this year in Lukhovitsy, in the complex centre of social service of the population, the office in which disabled children accompanied by parents pass course rehabilitation in stationary conditions (12 places) in a mode of day stay has been open. «In work we use modern innovative technologies on rendering of the rehabilitation services, developed by the Center of aerospace medicine»? — the director of the centre Anatoly Sukhoguzov has reported.

 The rehabilitation centre prepares for opening for disabled people and disabled children in Kolomna also. Stationary offices where disabled children will be ортезироваться will work here and to be fitted a prosthesis with the subsequent course rehabilitation accompanied by parents. «In our establishments of social service where children can come together with parents, experts are engaged with children with limited possibilities of health in a kinezoterapiya, gymnastic and sports and applied exercises, medical gymnastics, do exercises on фитболах? — Olga Zabralova has noted.? — Rooms for a kinezoterapiya are equipped with dry pools, inflatable trampolines, game labyrinths, massage rugs, multipurpose exercise machines».

However not only efforts of experts on adaptation of disabled children are concentrated to treatment and rehabilitation to real life. Training, receiving a profession which would help the "special" child with life — here the sphere to which today the authorities of the region pay the closest attention. The last achievements — in Sergiyevo-Posadsky social and economic technical school of the ministry of a social security of the population now it is possible free of charge and to receive distantly speciality «Economy and accounting». Thanks to new technologies of training «at distance» students can supervise training process, will have an opportunity to be engaged in a place convenient for, during convenient time, at the speed and a rhythm and to co-operate with the teacher individually.

Today in the Moscow region lives more than 500 thousand disabled people that makes 3,8 % from number of disabled people in Russia and 7 % from a total number of the population of the region. More than 380 thousand disabled people (80 %) — pensioners, 16 % — citizens of able-bodied age (more than 76 thousand people) and 4 % disabled children (more than 18 thousand people).
