Holly commented on Early Identification of Intellectual Disabilities

Utilizing developmental checklists created by Catholic Relief Services for Kenya, Malawi, and Zambia.

We are serving the parents by not only providing answers to their concerns for their children by also a context in which to address them at our Community Care Centers. When families are provided a direction of care they feel less shame and loss of stigma, which begins to transform culture.

We will work with health care workers with a standardized assessment for varied disabilities.

In December, 2015, the government published its "National Policy on Disability", in which they specifically state that they need to "develop and promote programs that prevent and reduce incidences of disability."

We will be able to measure impact by seeing how many children are referred by clinics to Special Hope Network's centers.
