Children with Disabilities Programme

“Children with disabilities need to be given the opportunity to reach their full potential and be accepted as part of the community.” 

In Cambodia children with disabilities are often isolated as parents / carers keep them hidden from society.  They may die prematurely due to lack of specialist care, neglect or abandonment.

We aim to prevent this happening to children in Siem Reap Province by providing specialist care and therapeutic interventions to enable children to reach their full potential. The Special Needs Education Programme for children with disabilities was established in January 2012 after a survey of the families attending GHCC revealed several children with disabilities living in the community and unable to attend state school. 

 

Children thrive with stimulation, structured play and socialisation.

 

Providing a stable, secure and nurturing environment for students is our aim, with the focus on individual needs. We assess each child and develop a therapeutic intervention plan. The enriched learning environment within our classrooms helps students learn and develop. 

 

We encourage students to make choices for themselves, develop and grow strong.

Assistance with life skills, physical rehabilitation, personal care and communication enables children to reach their full potential.

 

Breaking down barriers, getting involved in the community and trying new experiences are all part of this. Our social worker also provides emotional support for children who have experienced trauma and abuse.

Meeting
Individual Needs

We provide a programme for children with moderate to severe physical and/or intellectual disabilities.

 

The classrooms are within main GHCC grounds; 

encouraging inclusion.  

 

Local trained staff offer a structured programme designed for the individual child including many

activities to enable the development of cognitive, physical, communication and social skills.

The children’s development is enhanced by specialist volunteers in physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy. With a focus on education, more able children are assisted to progress to mainstream school while others work to a curriculum which supports their needs.

 

Young people are taught life skills with the aim of progressing to employment and independence.
