Children with disabilities (CWDs) often do not receive education because of discrimination from the schools and because of lack of mobility that is needed to get to school each day. Their families are often poor because they must stay home and take care of the child instead of going to work.
After receiving treatment from VIC children are integrated into schools and provided with school materials such as books, pencils and uniforms. They are also provided with bicycles if the school if far away. VIC also ensures that the patient’s school set up with equipment that allows for accessibility such as and ramps, road access and custom built toilets.
If the child has a learning disability or simply lives to far away to get to a school a specially trained tutor will be provided for them and will come to teach them in there home. VIC staff follows up with patients regularly to ensure that their integration into school or ongoing instruction is maintained. VIC’s educational support program ensures positive, lasting improvement for CWDs and their families.
