The two weeks in Kuala Lumpur was an amazing project that is continuing to be sustained by the National University of Malaysia’s Speech and Language Pathology department.
Our team of ten partnered with the university students and teachers in three special needs schools:
- Kiwanis Down Syndrome National Center
- Kuala Lumpur School for Autism
- Spastic Children’s Association Of Selangor & Federal Territory
Simultaneously we trained the special needs teachers and the speech therapy students in assessment, curriculum development and constructing communication systems using mobile technology. Thanks to generous donations, The Nika Project was able to provide eight refurbished iPads, two iPods and a projector to the three schools.
We look forward to ongoing collaboration and support with the University!
