Psychosocial support

CWDs and their families need constant psychosocial support to enable them to cope with the challenges presented by childhood disability. Psychosocial support equips parents and CWDs with assertiveness, self-awareness and self-esteem.

With support, CWDs are able to build meaningful friendships and better ways of coping with the disability challenge. This is done in form of counselling, group discussions and one-on-one sessions to address issues of stigma, depression, anxiety, isolation, social exclusion and other emotional challenges related to childhood disability.
