 ...for Children with Specific Learning Difficulties

Special Attention Project (SAP) is a Ghanaian Non-Governmental Organization that improves the lives of children with Specific Learning Difficulties by spreading information to the public, advocating for learning support for pupils with learning difficulties in mainstream schools, doing research and training on Specific Learning Difficulties as well as providing practical support to out-of-school children with learning difficulties in the streets of Accra.




SAP offers training in Specific Learning Difficulties for teachers, parents, caregivers and anyone who is interested in helping children who have specific learning difficulties/disabilities.

The training involves leading participants to identify the signs and symptoms that are evident when someone has a specific learning difficulty and the practical steps to be taken in managing the difficulties. 

The training sessions can be designed to meet the needs of specific groups or institutions.


SAP carries out various types of training programmes:

  •  Provision of training to Resource Teachers of the Ghana Education Service.

Resource Teachers are ‘Special Needs Teachers’ who are posted at clusters of schools and districts, to support pupils who have special educational need. This training is organized in collaboration with the Special Education Division of the Ghana Education Service and dependent on funding from third parties.

  •  Training for teachers, parents and other individuals.
