SUPPORTING THE SPECIAL SCHOOLS
To offer blind or deaf children an education adapted to their disability, in line with the National Education program.
When children arrive at Krousar Thmey’s special schools for deaf or blind children, they spend 3 to 5 years studying full-time in the school in order to learn Sign Language or Braille according to their disability. They are then enrolled part time in public school.
Blind or visually impaired children study in the morning or afternoon at public school from grade 3, and deaf or hearing impaired children from grade 5. The other half of the day, they benefit from tutoring at the special schools.
- Courses in line with the national curriculum
- Additional courses to better cope with their disability: orientation and mobility, speech therapy, etc.
- Access to reading and adapted tools
- Creation of a specialized teacher status in discussion with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MoEYS)
