Interventions for the little ones...

Dear Supporters!

Thank you for your continued encouragement in our endeavours!

We have successfully completed vocational training for 75 children with disabilities at different special schools, 45 children with intellectual impairment and 30 children with hearing-speech impairment. 

The 10 week long training for textile design for children with hearing-speech imapirment included doodling, designing on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and colour concepts. The training also had added elements of constructing mood boards and searching for design inspiration on the internet.

Interventions for children with intellectual impairment were also explored. Children with intellectual imapirment in special schools were introduced to drawing and colour play. This improves hand-eye coordinations and fine motor movements, teaches colour concepts and allows children with intellectual impairment to express themselves through art and design. Blockprinting was also introduced for children with intellectual impairment to improve their gross motor movements and introduce colour concepts. 

Furthering our interventions for children with intellectual impairment, we partnered with Wondertree, which provides games based on augmented reality. The games work on the motor movements, hand-eye coordination, attention, learning and social interaction. It also teaches children concepts of shapes, colours and alphabets as well. The games are based on augmented reality therefore also allowing the child to develop a sense of self and the surroundings. 

We are looking forward to building on more skills to be introduced in special schools, which can help children with disabilities in their personal development and to enter into the mainstream.
