Meet Thesath

By Shahera Omar | Project Leader


Meet Thesath

When he came to us at age 3 (2016 June), Thesath had about 10 words mostly nouns, ‘mother’, ‘father’, etc. He was
not functioning at an age-appropriate level. Working with his teacher one-on-one Thesath learns self-help skills, arts and crafts and does movement therapy. But most importantly at E.A.E. we believe in presuming competence and the vital importance of communication. This is why our primary goal is to give Thesath the knowledge and skills to attain age-appropriate communication and education. 

We are so proud to say that in January 2019, he entered a mainstream classroom (Grade 1) speaking at an age-appropriate level and well able to do the work his peers will do. His mother shared that he aced the intake interview at his new school.

Your contribution is vital to allow us to complete this life-changing work. 

We provide the following services free of charge: 

  • Age appropriate academics
  • Self-help skills
  • Vocational training
  • Trips, concerts and fun events
