This week the Mary Rice Centre was privileged to organize a workshop for parent of children with different needs. The workshop was not only for the parents but also for the community as well. The parents were encouraged to come with their neighbour and friends so as to share this knowledge that will help them raising and taking care of children with special need. The workshops educated the parents and the community on different types of disabilities,their causes and how they can be managed.
The workshops was conducted by representatives from Educational Resource Centre Nairobi(ERC) who are certified by the government to conduct general assessment on children with special needs and recommend appropriate schools, therapy and approach on how to handles children with different needs.
This workshop was indeed very helpful not only for the parents but also the Mary Rice staff who work directly with children with special needs, This surely help both the parent and the staff in providing quality services to the children of Mary Rice Centre.
