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 because of 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 seeks to develop and test more disability inclusive curriculum and teaching methods for services providers to address some of those barriers.
