Assisting Children with Severe and Multiple Disabilities
Equal Educational Opportunities for All Learners
Children with Severe and Multiple Disabilities have been significantly sidelined in almost all spheres of life yet they have innate abilities that can be exploited if accorded the opportunity.
They can read, laugh, cry, sing, or even use their body parts like anyone else who does not have a disability even if they are severely affected.
All they need is love, patience and consideration for their uniqueness.'No child is dull.' This book seeks to highlight challenges encountered by these children, their parents, caregivers, teachers and other stakeholders in their day to day lives.
Sometimes they are stigmatised, wrongly labelled or neglected.Despite these challenges these children can be assisted to lead normal lives with appropriate support services right from conception.
