Dien Ban District has over 1,000 children with disabilities and special needs. Prevalent conditions include Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome, Autism, Microcephalus and intellectual impairment. There are barely any support services available. The consequences of these disabilities can be catastrophic to individuals and their families. They can result in social marginalisation, lack of educational opportunities, depression, and inability to find employment, as well as damaging health and well-being through the heightened risk of infection.
