Eden Social Welfare Foundation serves weak individuals in the society, from children to the elderly, with a special interest in developmentally delay in children. There are 75 service centers in Taiwan to serve developmentally delayed children under age 6 and mentally or physically challenged individuals. The Foundation also works with more than 64 local community units and schools to take care of the children in the remote minority areas. According to the statistics from WHO, the occurrence rate of developmental delay in children from 0 to 6 falls approximately 6% to 8%. In the statistics from Ministry of Health and Welfare in 2016, the rate spotting the child with developing delay post the age of 3 is 53%. Some are notified after 6 years old, which leads to missing the critical opportunity of intervention services involved. The factors of late discovery for early intervention usually result from inconvenient transportation, cross-generation parenting, lacking resources in medication and special education. It may also come from the barely recognizable appearances so that it is easy to neglect or family members are reluctant to ask for help due to fear of the children labeled. As a consequence, the children cannot receive the early intervention services in time. Combined with different fields of professionals, Eden Social Welfare provides the children with diversified early intervention services, giving different stimulation and team diagnosis.
