This is the beginning of a five weeks learning experience in Kenya. Now I’m in Kakamega, a town in western Kenya with a population of 99,987, 48% of whom are living on less than $1.25 per day.
Last night, I met a literature teacher working in secondary education, here in Kakamega. Even though he didn’t know a lot about autism he said there are some special schools and special education departments (classes in mainsream schools) in this county. I’m about to visit a school today and learn more about autism and education in Kenya.
