Children with disabilities have bigger challenges in accessing basic education during an emergency situation, i.e. blind children do not have access to Braille literacy. Children with disabilities and girls are easily isolated and ignored, not able to interact and learn with their peers in mainstream education. Teachers do not have right tools and resources to assist children with disabilities in learning and they often have little or no training in early intervention or inclusive education
The project consists of a device Reach & Match Learning Kit and Reach & Match Inclusive Learning Program. It is a researched-based educational tool combining literacy, sensory elements and interactive features for children disabilities to learn and engage equally in a mainstream environment. The program aligns with the Early Years Learning Framework that provides 7 learning outcomes with a holistic approach, including literacy, numeracy, motor, social and communication skills.
