Early childhood development and education services are vital to promote young children’s chances of succeeding in life, especially in a low-income setting like rural Malawi. Unfortunately, children with disabilities are less likely to attend these services, which compounds the discrimination they already face. This is due to a number of reasons but includes the lack of disability-friendly services available and the lack of service providers who have been trained on disability issues.
This study aimed to develop and test more disability-inclusive curriculum and teaching methods for service providers to address some of the barriers.
