The CBR Network is directly involved in the training of caregivers and teachers in the field of Early Childhood Care and Development. Under the Udisha-Portage project supported by the Department of Women and Child Development, it trains ICDS personnel on early identification, intervention and stimulation of children with disabilities in the ICDS programme. It has also undertaken a joyful inclusion project, which involves the creation of a classroom for all, including children with disabilities.
