JOHANNESBURG - The City of Joburg has launched the Jozi iSchool Africa lab inclusive education programme that supports children with autism, in partnership with Autism SA and iSchoolAfrica
Member of the mayoral committee (MMC) for health and social development, Mpho Phalatse said the lab was launched last Friday.
Speaking at the launch event at Nokuthula Special School in Lyndhurst, Phalatse, said the partnership intended for the most vulnerable in our education sector would add value and enhance the tools for teaching children who are autistic.
She said the Jozi lab would help children with autism to connect with the world through technology.
"The city has taken a serious stance on early childhood development programmes as one of its Diphetogo projects, to ensure that children’s human rights of access to quality and inclusive education is realised,” said Phalatse.
