Centre for Children with Intellectual Disabilities with co-operation from Volunteer Society Nepal (VSN) organized one day workshop on “INTRODUCTION AND INTERACTION- for the improvement in qualities on services provided to the children with intellectual disability”. The programme was held on Sunday the 4th of December at its own premises in New Baneshwor, Kathmandu. The organizations working with intellectually disabled children were requested to represent with their experts to share the experiences and professional knowledge with CCID.
Eleven guests from different organisations actively participated in the programme and shared their experiences and professional knowledge. All the guests with in depth knowledge and years of experiences gave very helpful instructions to CCID on which way to approach in coming days. Several matters relating the care, training, therapies, counselling and rehabilitation were discussed during the programme. All the organisations were very positive in providing further training at CCID or any other place whenever is needed. Forming a network among the people working with the intellectual disabilities was also discussed during the programme. VSN volunteers at CCID, Ms. Petra Bakker from Holland and Mr. Mark Brooking from Australia also shared their experiences. Both are working with disabled children at their home countries.
