Including Orphans and Vulnerable Children with Disabilities in Early Childhood Development Programs
AIDSTAR-One has published this technical brief presenting information and guidance on implementing ECD programs for young OVC with disabilities and their families. It provides a basic overview of the fundamental elements a program manager should consider to integrate disability positively into ECD programs and address specific disabilities individually, as needed. This technical brief describes “twin-track” and “triple-track” approaches that promote participation, attention to specific needs, and equal access for OVC with disabilities and their families. It also lists six critical elements for HIV programs seeking to address the needs of children with disabilities. Levy, Marcy; Messner, Lyn; Wertlieb, Donald, JSI/AIDSTAR-One, 2014.
