News E-learning course

Great news for every parent, teacher and NGO who deals with children with disabilities. Niketan together with Enroute International Limited  publish e-learning courses. There will be a series of courses to learn how to take good care of the children with “Cerebral Palsy” and other disabilities.

Training on feeding and motor skills

The first training is about feeding and motor skills. In what position can you best feed your child, what do you give your child, which problems can you face and how do you deal with it? Too often we see frustrated mothers who are in a fierce battle with their child. Children who refuse food and mothers who administer it brutally, sometimes it even leads to the death of the child. When eating becomes a battle , parents cannot win by forcing their children to eat. Force will only aggravate the problem and children may even choose to endanger their health rather than give in. We also show you what to do when your child have Gastroesophageal reflux (GER). This is a condition in which the contents of the stomach ‘backwash” up into the esophagus or throat. Recognizing this problem helps parents and caretakers to avoid unnecessary struggles with their child.

The second part of the training is about motor skills. Parents of children with disabilities most often want the best for their child. They want their child to walk like their peers. But they do not know which developmental steps the child has to make before it is able to walk. Unfortunately, also practitioners in Bangladesh tend to have limited knowledge of the developmental milestones of young children with disabilities. This for example has resulted in children with disabilities being forced to walk while their body and muscles are not yet able to do so. Thus they develop a wrong functional strength and a wrong perception of the world. This will then influence their future development in self-care, mobility and social function.

It is found that children with Cerebral Palsy rapidly achieve gross motor skills in the first 2 years (eg, roll from a supine to a prone position and sit without support) and will be able to walk independently between   1.5  and 5 years of age. To help caretakers, parents and their children to achieve independent walking, the second part of this module is to learn more about stimulating the first developmental milestones in a child’s development: head balance, rolling and sit balance.
