When children with a mental disability graduate from school, or if they, through circumstances, did not go to school, there is no other opportunity for them then staying at their family at home. At the SLB there is a form of activity group but they can only participate in this group for three years, after this there is really nothing more to do. To offer young adults a place where they can do all sorts of activities and learn practical skills we have started a young adult group.
Play learn groups
Teach the teacher
In 2005 we have started with educating Balinese teachers through an intensive program. Together with Dutch volunteers, who guided the teachers, experiences and insights have been exchanged to come up with useful methods and programs. A big part of the program was the background information from the different disabilities and syndromes as in Bali not much information is available about this. In means of a variety of workshops the Balinese teachers learn how to handle the different disabilities. Trainees got the assignment to develop a special movements plan and we have given trainings in communication, cooperation and how to give guidance.
