From the comfort of your home, volunteer to share your expertise working with children who have special needs. Provide a 1-hour presentation for teachers and/or parents who are on the island of Grenada. These presentations will help parents and teachers better communicate and interact with their child by using techniques such as PECS.
Volunteers needed: 1-2 presenters each month. Volunteers can choose to present once or multiple times during the year.
Potential topics to cover
The Cognitive Delay Assessment and Support program provides accommodations and alternative strategies to help children with cognitive, emotional, and developmental delays. The island of Grenada has limited special needs resources, so local volunteers are filling this void through tools like HANDLE by working at three special education schools with students, teachers, and parent groups. Special needs are broad, so HANDLE is used to ensure that individuals in the program are met with care and understanding. This creates a welcoming environment for individuals to live and worship without stigma or discrimination.
Parent support group meetings are also offered every month to develop relationships with the families being served and open up opportunities to share the gospel.
