Training workshops

CAPDA runs regular training workshops for parents and carers of children with disabilities. Each workshop addresses a particular issue and outlines its causes, treatments and methods of prevention.

Past workshops have dealt with:

  • handling and positioning techniques
  • feeding
  • exercises to improve mobility and ease of care
  • problem solving
  • communication
  • encouraging empathy and awareness of the impact of disabilities
  • intellectual disabilities
  • prevention of secondary problems
  • education of children with disabilities
  • malaria
  • toileting

We try to tailor our workshops not only to address problems we have observed, but also to answer specific questions asked by the carers.
