Special Needs Program

A special need is classified under two major categories: learning difficulties and behavioral difficulties. Learning disabilities can affect one's ability to read, write, speak, spell, compute math, reason and also affect a person's attention, memory, coordination, social skills and emotional maturity. Behavioral difficulties are exhibited as inappropriate types of behavior or feelings under normal circumstances, an inability to learn which cannot be explained by intellectual, sensory, or health factors, and an inability to build or maintain satisfactory interpersonal relationsips with others. The Special Needs Program is an expansion of The Elevator Project that focuses on lifting those that also have a special need out of poverty.

There's no greater

disability in society,

than the inability to

see a person as more.

My disability is what I have,

not who I am.
