SAP Educates About 4,000 Parents in Three Months

SAP has intensified its awareness raising campaign on learning difficulties and inclusive education, reaching out to close 4,000 parents in just three months.

The parents were sensitised during face        -to-face information sharing sessions at parents and teachers’ association (PTA), religious group and other social group meetings. 

The parents learned how to recognise symptoms of learning difficulties, the practical measures they could take to help children with learning difficulties, and the role the parents  could play to promote the inclusion of their children in mainstream schools.

“I now understand the learning problem       of my child better. He’s 11 years but finds it difficult to read and write. I have been shouting at him a lot because I used to    think that he was being lazy and didn’t

want to learn,” a parent shared at the PTA meeting of  the Garrison Primary and JHS at  Burma Camp, Accra.

“I’m very delighted to be part of this   meeting. I’m a teacher and more often,      you are likely to label a child as ‘dumb’            if that child can’t learn like his/her peers.      I have learned a lot from this sensitisation     on learning difficulties,” a member stated during SAP’s joint meeting with Success  Book Club and Achievers Ghana in Accra.
