The service goal of CLED Ghana is to be a change agent and advocate for children with learning disabilities and other diverse learners via Raising Awareness on Special Needs Differences, Campaigning for Inclusive Education in schools, and offering Training for Teachers, Families and Children.
The Campaign For Learning Differences-(CLED) Ghana is a registered
non-profit and non-governmental organization committed to providing
special education and related services to young people with learning
disabilities and other special needs, their parents, and those who
teach and work with them.
We provide capacity building for teachers using evidence-based strategies for teaching learners with learning disabilities and other special needs.
We aid in forming parent-self help groups to build community among them and empower families to understand, support, and advocate for their children with special needs and learning disabilities.
We campaign and spread evidence-based information about learning disabilities and other special needs, inclusive education, and special needs policies.
Recently, CLED Ghana trained 325 educators including head teachers, counselors, special education teachers, school curriculum leaders and supervisors. During the workshops a Leading Special Education Scholar from the University of Education, Winneba Department of Special Education Dr. Anthony Kofi Mensah advocated for inclusive schools and gave a presentation on accommodations for inclusive education and parental issues.

CLED Ghana has begun to pilot a career development and goal-setting program for students at St. Mary’s Anglican School. CLED Ghana in collaboration with Michael Walton Foundation will team up with local institutions to give the students internship and volunteering opportunities shadowing and learning about their future career.
This summer 2019, CLED Ghana received volunteers from the United States and they spent time co-teaching with local teachers and shared ideas on evidence based teaching styles. They also worked with many students to help them prepare for their future careers and with other students in the resource room to tutor students in helping them prepare for their exams, review classroom notes, and practice their mathematical, reading, and writing skills.
