19.6.2 Disability-specific programmes and services
The second track focuses on disability-specific programmes and services designed on purpose to address the needs of people with disabilities, such as orthopaedic centres, special schools, etc. You should find out about any such projects that may be operating in your area. You could help in making these disability-specific programmes and services more accessible at community level. For example, you might direct the families of children with motor or sensory impairments to a project that provides physical aids such as crutches (Figure 19.4), hearing aids, braces or wheelchairs (Figure 19.5).
