Our education program targets parents, teachers, other professional and the general public responsible for the education, development, and care of children/youth in schools.
Teachers Training program
CLED provides training for teachers, head teachers, education directors and others who work with children in partnership with Ghana Education Service, Awutu Senya Municipality and private schools in the community to be able to identify and respond to the learning needs of children with learning disabilities, Irlen Syndrome, attention issues and co-occurring difficulties.
We are achieving this through:
– Providing in-service training and handbooks for school teachers
– Training district educational officers and head teachers about children with learning disabilities and providing strategies for inclusive education
-CLED Campus is a program that aims at forming clubs in teacher training colleges to campaign for children with learning disabilities so that teacher trainees can begin raising awareness of learning disabilities, identify it in school children, and provide appropriate intervention to ameliorate the condition when they complete college.
We also do awareness, counseling and referral for parents and care-givers to support service centers in Ghana
We are doing this through:
– Hosting educational sessions for parents to learn about learning disabilities, Irlen Syndrome, attention issues and ways to support their child
– Communicating with educational officials to gain admission to schools for children with learning disabilities, Irlen Syndrome, attention issues who have been denied it.
CLED’s aim in the outreach sector is to spread awareness of learning disabilities, irlen syndrome and inclusive education. Through this, we aim to increase public responsiveness to children with learning disabilities and educational marginalisation.
This aim will be achieved through:
– Running radio/TV talk shows that discuss learning disabilities and inclusive education-
– Visiting churches to educate the congregation about learning disabilities and providing educational materials and contacts for available support services
– Traveling to communities and schools to educate members about child rights, learning disabilities, and inclusive education
