School children In Kenya

Children are simply amazing. This is a hilarious clip and it makes me smile. The kid on the left in red looks like he has some ADD ama dyslexia coz he seems not to be participating entirely and the little girl still shows 5 fingers when they are singing about number 9 :) Makes me think about how out here kids are diagnosed early when it comes to developmental disorders and placed in appropriate programs. Now in Kenya especially in a class like this one, there's nary a chance that anything will be done for a child without an obvious developmental disorder such as Down's (even then depending on finances or goodwill not much may be done). Does anyone know anything about Genetic Counselors in Kenya? I am interested ...

On other selfish thoughts....Kabinti (she and not her blog) turns a year older on Sunday....

What a lovely post, Kabinti:) My smile grew wider and wider as I listened and as the children became louder and louder. I would be interested to know more about what is being done (if at all) for children with such disorders in Kenya.

Third person here wishing you a happy birthday on Sunday.
