Thanks to the generosity of our donors, individual sponsors and support from the community, KWO was able to continue the Special Education Project successfully throughout the 2016-17 school year. We thank you for your encouragement and assistance. We are looking forward to the new year and hope you all stay with us!
KWO wrapped up a full month of Special Education Training of Trainers. The training involved 24 participants, including our special education trainers, school directors, and town staff. People came from all 7 camps where we conduct this important project. A few senior staff from our Nursery School Project also attended since many of the topics covered can help that project as well. The training was conducted by KWO staff along with staff from World Education and the Christian Centre for Development of People with Disabilities.
Training topics that were covered included: Behavior management, Identifying different Disabilities in New Enrollments, Social Inclusion, Learning Disabilities, Assessment, Observation, Helping Children with Autism, Early Intervention, Stimulation for Very Young Children, Learning through Play, Toy Making, Organizing the Classroom, Learning Through Practice, Parenting Skills, Children’s Learning Processes, Child Psychology, Finance and Management, and the KWO Structure.
KWO’s Special Education Project has 4 main components:
Early Intervention with young children with disabilities (home visits and at SE Centres)
Inclusive Education (in mainstream school, SE Centres and home visits)
