Once again, the Chukka Foundation was very happy to offer their support to Creative Language Based Learning and their 2018 Summer School Program!
The Creative Language Based Learning Program was introduced in Jamaica in April 2017.The program is offered to train teachers in the Linda Mood-Bell Learning Procedures to help with early identification of dyslexia. Programs are designed to provide students with the capacity to work with their learning difference, and to re-integrate these students into the classroom.
Dyslexia is the most common of language-based learning disabilities. The negative impact of language-based learning disabilities can be significant and long lasting on both the individual, and society at large; overlooked learning disabilities are cited as one of the root causes of disorderly behavior in children.
To date, ninety teachers from 43 Early Childhood and Special Educators schools from urban and rural areas across the island of Jamaica have been trained. Last year, the first group of 1,500 children felt the positive impact of the program immediately, and this year, another 2,000 have benefitted.
Testimonials from the teachers and children in the program have been positive, indicating satisfaction with the program’s success.
We are delighted to be one of the sponsors to help provide opportunities to enhance children’s learning, as it is a lasting investment in the future of our communities.
