This training manual is part of a series of specialized training manuals of the program “I am Smart, Strong, and Safe Child… Despite my Disability” that aims at protecting children from abuse. The program was launched under the patronage of United Nations Special Rapporteur on Disability, and covers 4 main types of disabilities: motor disability, speech impairment, visual impairment, and mild mental disability.
This training manual aims at developing children’s protection skills, their personality, self esteem and sense of self-worth. It is specifically designed for children challenged by mild mental disabilities. It focuses on introducing good and safe conduct in situations where mentally disabled children are vulnerable to abuse, it further offers prevention techniques and methods by which children can build positive thinking skills.
The workshops in this training manual has been developed in a way that any trainer with a background in training and practical experience in dealing with children with motor disability can conduct them. However, to get the best out of the manual, it is recommended that the trainer attends a specialized professional training by Be-Free Program to get a deeper understanding of the concepts, and to be able to effectively communicate them to children.
