About Saba Rose Button Foundation
After a tragic incident in 2010 to the then 11 months Saba (read Saba’s story), The Saba Rose Button Foundation was founded in 2012 and has since raised significant funds to help children who have special needs and their families.
The funds raised help to pay for these children to participate in ‘intensive blocks’ of therapy, for specialised equipment that is needed, for parental respite and for care in the home.
Around the community you may have noticed individuals wearing TEAM SABA clothing. Saba Rose Button Foundation has established a STRONG relationship with numerous community supporters through our TEAM SABA brand.
“Being the ambassador for the Saba Rose Button Foundation is a privilege.
These wonderful children and their families are always striving for improvement to reach their potential. The barriers and obstacles for these troopers are greater than most will ever have to face in their lives, yet the positivity, support and drive of this community is incredible.
I am the lucky one that gets to support this work and help grow the opportunities available and help these wonderful kids kick their own goals.” Dana Hooker – West Coast Eagles AFLW.
Improving the lives of children throughout Perth
The dedicated work from the Saba Rose Button Foundation and the support from the community has resulted in many children walking for the first time, communicating for the first time and being able better participate with their families – all thanks to the rehabME a cutting edge intensive therapy program.
The rehabME INTENSIVE COLLECTIVE brings together local specialised therapists skilled in neurodevelopmental therapy to work together to develop and achieve specific rehabilitation goals for each individual child.
The rehabME INTENSIVE COLLECTIVE aims to offer opportunity for development, achievement and consolidation of goals through providing a safe and welcoming environment, providing quality clinical care and expressing compassion for both the child and their families.
It is an initiative for children to partake in intensive blocks of multidisciplinary forms of therapy here in Perth. The children have an option of 1–4 hours of therapy per day over a 3 week period. The child’s parents choose their child’s timetable configuration to suit their goals and individual needs.
