Special Schools to receive more govt support – Napo
The Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has said schools with special needs will be given more attention to help the students realize their full potential.
According to him, Ghana will progress faster if all its human resources are given equal educational opportunities.
He said there is a conscious effort to train teachers to understand the needs of these students and aid them through their education.
He was speaking at a dinner organized by the Alexis Miranda foundation to raise funds to support children with special needs in Ghana.
Ghana’s Ambassador designate to Israel, Mike Oquaye Jnr., urged parents with children with special needs to ensure there is an insurance package for their upkeep in case they pass on.
The foundation was established to help increase Autism awareness globally and to support families and providers of children with learning disabilities. The Alexis Miranda Foundation (AMF) is committed to enhancing the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by Autism and other disabilities.
