School integration is very important, however, in Peru this integration is done only superficially, and really few children are included in the educational system, since there is indifference and discrimination on the part of the people. For true educational inclusion, one must first consider: the training of teachers among other members of the educational community. Second, parents need to be informed about what to expect from schools and what the overall situation is.

That is why inclusive education does not believe in segregation, nor does it consider that a special place should be built for children with disabilities. If not, he proposes that there is a place called school that is for everyone and there is a social process called education and that process is lived in common.

This is the case with 5-year-old Jhoan who, despite her diagnosis of Infantile Cerebral Palsy, has broken the myths that a child with special abilities cannot be included in a regular educational institution.

Jhoan has been part of the Wasi Esperanza family for 3 years, studying physical therapy, psychology and education. What allowed Jhoan over time to have skills such as balance to be able to sit, improve her posture, basic learning in letters and numbers. To date, he knows how to count to 10, recognizes the vowels, the members of his family, the colors among other knowledge, goals that he has achieved with the support of parents and professionals.

Since 2020, the parents have sought to include him in the local kindergarten, but they had problems as the teacher did not want to accept him because he was a child with a disability, so he was rejected at first. The parents tried their best to get their son accepted into the school. Currently Jhoan studies in the group of 05-year-olds, where he takes virtual classes due to COVID 19. He enjoys his Learning classes at home and homework, the teacher meets with him once a week to see his achievements.

That is why the Education area aims to meet the learning needs of all children with special emphasis on those who are vulnerable to marginalization and social exclusion.

Ingrid is 05 years old and playful, impatient, skillful, but above all charismatic. She likes board games and any other flashy stuff.

Her diagnosis is Down Syndrome, she lives with her family, which consists of her older siblings and parents, who give her a lot of love, affection and patience.

Ingrid's parents sought us out for help when she was 2 years old, at that time she had hypotonia, did not communicate, had attention problems, among other signs and symptoms of her condition.

She is receiving help in the areas of Physical Rehabilitation, Day Center, Psychology and Education over the years Ingrid has had many achievements and successes such as:
- Walk alone, be able to support her body and have balance. Now she jumps and runs with her older brothers and makes them sweat.
- Adquire a linguistic language (Vocabulary: Bread, water, mom, dad among other words and some sounds). This helps her interact with more people.
- Follows basic instructions such as: "take", "give me", "take this to ...", bring the ... "and more.
- Dresses independently: put on shoes, headbands, shirts and pants. She performs higher performance exercises, such as eat solid foods, go to the bathroom, among others.


Ingrid is a little girl who learns very fast and imitates some situations at the learning level in the present time. She makes recognition of clothes, fruits, some colors, the human body and actions in daily life. She is also learning about emotions and the correct use of the pencil and painting. She is about to learn other topics such as vowel recognition, numbers, which is now a challenge that we hope to achieve the support of parents.

In 2018, she started attending a regular school I.E.P. 320 “San Miguelito Arcángel” and managed to be accepted when she was 3 years old. These past 2 years Ingrid was integrated into a new environment, thus getting to know her new classmates, teacher, new learnings in her day to day life. The teachers of San Miguelito Arcángel love her very much and also include her in all their activities.

Due to the pandemic and quarantine, she has stopped attending her classes, thus leading virtual classes where the family helps her with her homework supporting the education area, and adapting the work.
The work at Wasi Esperanza is through visits to her home to provide sessions from the Education and Psychology area, each session Ingrid awaits us with a smile, joy and desire to work. While working on issues of behavior, language stimulation and learning.

Gustavo is a 07 year old boy with cerebral palsy. He has attended the center since he was 01 years old and since last year he has entered the education project.

He does not have enough strength to walk and this is aggravated by the overweight he has, his mother controls his food, but not being able to go out to come to therapy or go to his classes has made him sad and he wants to eat.

Since April Gustavo received attention through video calls and with the help of his mother does the exercises that the therapists indicate, but the family only has the cell phone of the older brother so that Gustavo and his brothers receive virtual classes and Many times the schedules intersect so the parents have to decide which of their children will use the cell phone. Since this month the older brother got a job and has to go out every day, for this reason Gustavo and his brothers can no longer enter virtual classes.

We managed to get him a cell phone with internet connection so that the family can use it for therapy and virtual classes for Gustavo and his brothers. The classes for Gustavo are difficult since he was just learning to read and write. The person in charge of the project is preparing a workbook to be able to continue with the objective of reading and writing, in addition to advising the mother on how to adapt the tasks they assigned in classes according to Gustavo's abilities.

Like Gustavo, 40% of our patients have difficulties accessing virtual classes because they do not have internet connection and the vast majority who have a cell connected to Internet have to buy internet packages every week in order to enter virtual classes.

It is a complicated situation, but we continue working so that our children continue to receive care and we try to adapt as best as possible to the current context.
