Challenge

The children with special needs are considered to be a social, financial, mental and physical burden to their families. Through lack of knowledge and skills of the family, the children do not get the appropriate help they need. The children do not go to school or leave their homes. Therefore, are not challenged to develop mentally or physically. The experiences have shown that the families will often prefer to invest on a healthy child over a child with special needs, when it comes education.

Solution
