Vocational Training

Vocational Skills for Special Children

In most cases, children with special needs grow into adults with special needs. The situation may seem natural, but negligence in helping these children develop pre-vocational skills can seriously affect them in the long run. The child may grow up to be an adult who will face trouble entering the workforce and adjusting. The child may also be unable to lead a self-sustainable life. Hence, it is important to introduce skills for the workplace. This will help children with special needs with cognitive development, quality of life, and overall well-being.

Developing Academic Abilities

We would like to make it clear that vocational skills are much more than just working with hands or learning a trade. Each child should develop academic abilities requisite for accomplishing complex jobs. We believe that children with special needs should be given ample support for mastering functional academics important for entering the workforce with confidence and basic knowledge to make simple calculations, understand what others say, communicate verbally, and write.

Finding the Job

Children with special needs should arm themselves with skills related to a job. Additionally, they should also have knowledge about how to find that job. We offer a pre-vocational curriculum that comprises special instructions on job-seeking skills. The skill sets offered include:

  • How to find a job opening
  • Where to look for a job
  • Writing a resume
  • Interviewing for a job

We also cover many other specific topics that would help in building these skills, such as how to use a computer to find a job, using a computer to contact potential employers, building effective communication practices (to clear job interviews), and how to complete a job application.

Vocational Skills Trained

We provide services to help children with special needs develop skills. Our services are also aimed at helping youth without special needs. We are committed to resolving the issue of youth unemployment and helping them create a bright future for themselves.

Our vocational skill sets include special plans made to train children with special needs or disabilities and youth without special needs. These plans are devised with the aim of helping them develop basic vocational skills that include the following:

Making crochet

  • Table cloths
  • Paper bags
  • Envelopes
  • Door mats
  • Shoes
  • Tailoring
  • Floor mats
  • Craft bags
  • Computer
  • Necklaces
  • Ear rings
  • Bangles

We also help children with special needs and youth develop advanced vocational skills such as the following:

  • Welding
  • Baking
  • Carpentry
  • Brick laying
  • Hair dressing
  • Mechanics and repairs
  • Hair cutting
  • Motor vehicle cleaning (washing bays)
  • Laundry skills for other learning centers

The skills training at our center is given through a customized plan devised based on the following:

  • Assessment of the child
  • Identifying child’s abilities
  • Determining child’s interests
  • Expectations of parents

Our professionals will offer the requisite guidance to children and are committed to expanding our vocational skills. Constraints concerning finance and other resources have prevented us from implementing everything in one go. We hope to include and implement these strategies soon.

Children with special needs or disabilities require some special skills. Unfortunately, not all of these kids are capable of developing and mastering these skills. That is where vocational trainers come to the rescue. These experts are trained to handle these children. They will carry out a vocational assessment to identify the following in children:

  • Interest
  • Ability
  • Age

Based on these parameters, the trainer will decide what skills to teach them—the skills that come one after the other. An experienced occupational therapist will play a very crucial role in your child’s life. The therapist will help the child undertake and accomplish this task. Children will get activity analysis and grades on their skills to encourage learning.

As professionals, we believe that vocational skills training should be planned using the principle of equal opportunity for all. It is also important that disabled individuals get training in similar situations as their non-disabled peers. There is absolutely no need to promote access to the following for individuals with nationally identified special needs (kids, young adults, older individuals, migrants, socially excluded, ethnic minority groups, and indigenous people):

  • Education
  • Training
  • Lifelong learning for people
