10 days summer camp 20th April to 30th  April for children with disabilities.

Introduction:

To meet the educational development of children with disabilities in inclusive education system, APD has been organizing summer camps every year as a supplementary support for quality improvement among disable children. The camp organizes in summer vocations of all schools. Basically the aims of these camps are to mobilize children’s from mainstream schools, asses their educational needs & provide the support and build the capacity among the parents or care givers and siblings through their participation in different sessions.

This year also the camps are planned to organize in the month of April for about 10 days. The children & parents from Davangere & Bijapur will mobilize. The specific focus of the camp is converting CwDs summer holidays into learning through activity based teaching the children who are in stage to learn & understand regular school curriculums & the parents of these children who can understand & train in curriculum adaptation.

Objectives:

  • To develop language and communication ability & improve academic performance among children with disability.
  • To increase siblings and parents’ active participation and build ability to support & teach regular class curriculum for their child in home.
  • To built self confidence, socialisation, leadership qualities etc... among children with disabilities.

Strategies:

Participation of parents groups: Parents groups have been formed in all four districts and they are motivated to contribute for programmes. This year the strategy is to get maximum involvement of parents groups in summer camp. For that during pre- camp meeting parents are shown their willingness to support for preparation of food, identification of suitable place & mobilizing local resources for camp. This will help to built strong group among parent & we feeling.          

Involving special skilled volunteers / Experts: To bring quality learning among the CWDs we planned to get support from the volunteers who were good at their skills and we also thought of few domain experts to bring much more quality learning among the CWDs.
