Abraham Raymond is our Instructor for IT4All an IT inclusive programme for special people with developmental learning disabilities at the Children’s Developmental Centre in Lagos (CDC). He shed more light on his work at the centre and the great benefits of the programme.
My name is Abraham Raymond, I work with the Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre as a programmes assistant (Intern) and I facilitate in some of our programmes. And I am currently facilitating in the Inclusive Technology for All at the Children’s Developmental Centre where I teach Computer Fundamentals, WeDo Robotics, PreSchool Essentials, and Kids Story Builder.

Inclusive Technology for All is one of the most valuable services that a parent can secure for a child who lives with a learning disability. Children with learning disabilities are often overwhelmed by the difficulties they face in a group-learning environment.

Children who receive special education tutoring on a year-round basis, rather than just before major testing seasons often experience the most progress.
