Why support CLED-Campaign For Learning Disabilities
In Ghana parents, educators, health workers and other professionals either have little or no knowledge about learning disabilities and related disorders. Learners with learning disabilities are often not recognised for their gifts and struggle to soar to the heights of their abilities in our society.
Those who are both learning disabled and females tend to face the greatest challenges and sometimes aggravated by the poor or low socio-economic status of the learners with learning disabilities. For example, a learner with disability who comes from a poor family is unlikely to go to school while his/her counterpart from a well to do family might be able to go to school.
From the beginning of their formal school years, learners with learning disabilities find themselves facing challenges in a society and school environment which often neither recognise nor foster exceptionalities.
Although protected by international policies and national policies of Ghana, learners with special needs often do not get the assessment, evaluation and support services they need to thrive. School aged learners with learning disabilities are often misunderstood and mislabeled, thus floundering in an unstructured environment, often suffering from the emotional impact of their differences. As they reach adulthood, those individuals have to fight societal misconceptions about their abilities. They thus struggle to obtain the education/training required to maintain jobs and independent living.
CLED-Campaign For Learning Disabilities welcomes anyone who wishes to support any of our projects. You may not be able to sponsor a full project but even a little contribution can support the Special Girls Initiative or sponsor a child. You can also contribute towards our other projects such as our Assessment & Consultation Services, Intervention Clinic, Education and Community School.
