CEREBRAL PALSY DAY

The staff received the training as part of a project called: “Special Mothers Project that seeks to create awareness about Cerebral Palsy,” while encouraging and sharing experiences with parents whose children have Cerebral Palsy.

CP is a neurological disorder that affects movement.

Mrs Hannah Awadzi, Initiator of Special Mothers Project, said, the daycare centres are usually the first contact point for babies and sometimes the staff get to know more about the children than their parents

“In this era where many parents are beginning to lose confidence in the house-helps, and most parents tend to be very busy with their work, the daycare centres are very important in terms of child development,” she said.

Mrs Awadzi said many day care centre are taking babies as young as three months old and there is the need for education on handling “special children” in a way that would not complicate their development.

Ms Akosua Darkuah Asante, Head of the Daycare Centre, expressed appreciation for the education and urged her staff to endeavour to look out for any unusual or abnormality in any child and report to the parent for urgent attention.
