On the 5th of March 2016, the GML Fondation Joseph Lagesse and GML ON THE MOVE supported the NGO UniKidz in its project of making inclusive education a reality in Mauritius. Unikidz has for objective to facilitate and promote the integration of disabled children and those with special educational needs in the national school system as from the pre-primary.
The GML Fondation Joseph Lagesse and GML ON THE MOVE were able to finalise numerous manuals and curriculums namely:
Teachers’ kit: Training manual for professionals such as school director, teachers, classroom assistants, nursery employees as well as all those with a direct link with children.
School-based Therapy Manual: This manual describes the processes used by the current educational system in order to give an operating Framework for every step of the children with special needs adaptation in a national school environment. This involved the diagnosis, the child’s progress reports, and the general operation report of the different pre-primary age group.
Parents’ guide to disability: Everything that a parent or relative needs to know about disability. It serves as a guide which regroups all products and services offered by the public sector, private sector and NGOs.
Curriculum: Development of a curriculum based on the National Curriculum Framework for children with disabilities or having special needs so that they have access to pre-primary education which is at the core of any stage of educational paths.
A big thank you to all the participants without whom none of this would have been possible!
