Parents of disabled children need training – PODCAM

Parents of Disabled Children Association (PODCAM) says the organisation is registering a great number of children with cerebral palsy hence the need for parents to know the rights of children with disabilities.

Cerebral palsy is the term for a number of neurological conditions that affect movement and coordination.

Mirriam Namanja has made the call.

Executive Director for PODCAM Mirriam Namanja said the organisation is making strides to make sure that the rights of persons with disabilities are protected.

She however acknowledged that there is a need for parents to be taught on how they can take care of children who have cerebral palsy.

“We are registering a great number of children with cerebral palsy hence the need for parents to be taught on how they can promote the rights of children with the disability,” said Namanja.

She added that parents must know how to handle disabled children since disabilities caused by cerebral palsy comes in various types and other disabilities are very severe hence the need for parents to be trained.

According to Namanja, children with cerebral palsy make up close to 80% of children with disabilities in Malawi.

Meanwhile, the organisation says it is conducting a workshop in Blantyre in order to equip parents with knowledge on how to take care of children with disabilities.
