Dysghraphia, Dyslexia and ADHD

Project CARES!

 

Approximately 11% of children between the ages of 4-17 have ADHD in the US, in 10 people have dyslexia, and it is estmated that 5-20% of people have Dysgraphia.

 

  • ADHD- a disorder that causes attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.
  • Dyslexia-a disorder that involves difficulty in learning to read or interpret words and letters
  • Dysgraphia- a condition that makes it hard to write. A person with this specific learning disability may have problems including illegible handwriting, inconsistent spacing, poor spatial planning on paper, poor spelling, and difficulty composing writing as well as thinking and writing at the same time.

     

Project Cares was created to bring more awareness across globe to kids and parents about these special needs and help, care, and give solutions to these children. Early identification of these special needs help kids to cope better and be successful and become part of the normal society.

Project Cares also aims to work to remove any social stigma which is there in some parts of the world against kids with these special needsThrough this project we would like to work with school districts and social groups to bring awareness sessions and possible outreach to people with needs.

 

Projects:

  • Seminars
  • Volunteer for CARE
  • Special Needs Awareness Day at school
  • Promotional videos on these disorders and how they affect the mind and how it feels to be the one to have it
  • Information sessions with small activities about the disorders
