The USAID and LCIF Children with Visual Impairments Project’s special educators continuously work with visually impaired children at the Resource Centers Tetovo, Veles, Shtip and Bitola.
In the past week they held 40 classes with 30 visually impaired children, where they focused on: 1. Math through logical games, addition, subtraction, odd and even numbers, learning about 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional objects; 2. Languages – review of learned letters and learning new ones, reading essays, aligning the words right in a sentence; 3. Biology – learned about healthy food using smart board and other fun tools.
While rehabilitation activities covered exercises for improvement of fine and rough motorics, exercises for better visual perception and visual stimulation and psycho-motoric re-education.
The special educators have regular communication with teachers and parents of visually impaired children. Their hard work and dedication are essential for children’s progress.
