Challenge

Abandoned children with intellectual disability, emotional and behavioral problems are particularly vulnerable. The staff of residential care where the children are accommodated are not trained how to cater to their special needs. In addition, the Bulgarian education system is not flexible and does not provide opportunities for effective curriculum for these children. As children without parental care they do not receive individual care and do not develop any self-care and daily living skills.

Solution

The initial assessment will allow us to identify the need of each child and provide support. The results of each assessment will be analyzed to create a program based on group work that will help each child learn and develop vital communication and adaptive skills. During the group sessions they will work in teams to acquire essential skills such as sharing, taking turns and cooperating with one another. In a safe learning environment the children will gain confidence in their abilities.

Long-Term Impact

The children who finish the one year program will be able to better deal with different social situations. They will communicate in an effective way to build social relationships with other familiar and unfamiliar individuals, work in groups, interact with peers and maintain friendships. They will also be able to organize their daily tasks, ask for help and use money.
