Dee's Abled Children

The object of the charity is to promote good health and education for children and young adults with learning and physical disabilities living in the impoverished district of Moratuwa on the island of Sri Lanka. We aim to achieve this through the sponsorship of the Meth Mihira Special Education centre and the development of services for families with special needs living in this area. Each child is assessed and a programme is built to cater for their individual needs. The programme offers Social Skills/Literacy and Numeracy/Personal and Domestic Skills/ Creative Arts/Life Skills/Family Counselling.

The Early Intervention Programme has been introduced to identify and support families with disabled children. The programme includes health and medical intervention/physiotherapy/speech and language therapy/oral feeding programme and parent education. We are committed to helping each child supported by the Meth Mihira centre to achieve their true potential and to be socially integrated into their family and community.
