Challenge

In the Kasoa area, about 32% of children with learning disabilities have avoided school, while 14% have changed schools because of the abuses they face at school (CLED, 2013). Most pupils with learning disabilities abandoned school before finishing primary school, continued in labour and poverty. Further research indicates Ghanaian teachers have very little or no knowledge of learning disabilities, limiting their ability to meet the educational needs of children with learning disabilities.

Solution

The project will enhance the quality of life and education of 100 children with learning disabilities by providing them with individualized learning partners and remedial clinics, psychological counseling and by providing parenting classes for their 100 parents. The project will also provide training for the learning partners (100 peer teaching volunteers), 100 teachers and will raise awareness on learning disabilities (10 radio and television talk shows).

Long-Term Impact

The children with learning disabilities will successfully advance in their education, as teachers and peers (Learning Partners) will have the skills to educate and support them in the classroom. At home, parents will support their children as effective co-educators. In the community, more awareness about learning disabilities will result in a public that is more knowledgeable, sensitive and responsive to the needs of children with learning disabilities.
