TRAINING & PROGRAMMES

Vocational Rehabilitation

Karachi Vocational Training Centre is the 1st Vocational training center with a unique Job Placement Program in Pakistan for the intellectually challenged. Over 500 intellectually challenged (IC) persons have been rehabilitated by KVTC and are engaged in paying jobs all over Karachi.

What We do?

As intellectual disabilities are not illnesses, there are no treatments per se. Instead, interventions focus on identifying abilities and limitations. The goal is to provide sufficient supports that maximize each person’s functioning. KVTC is the only centre in Sindh that offers a holistic solution to all rehabilitation needs of intellectually challenged persons and involves the 3 stages of rehabilitation:

    • Exploration
    • Understanding
    • Action

KVTC is the only SEN training centre in Sindh with a comprehensive Sports & PE Curriculum:

  • 1st Special Educational Needs (SEN) training centre in Karachi to win over 1000 Special Olympics medals.
  • 1st SEN training centre to consecutively win over 1327 medals and 7 consecutive Taekwondo championships.
  • Partnered with the British Council and UK Sports Board to develop and implement Pakistan’s 1st Inclusive Sports & Physical Education Curriculum.
  • Capacity building of over 44 SEN Institutes in Karachi.

Therapeutic Units

The common characteristics of intellectual disabilities are: difficulty in learning and processing information; problems with abstract thought; and problems with social interactions occur at varying levels unique to each individual. Intellectual impairment involves problems with mental abilities that affect day-to-day functioning in three areas:

  • Conceptual – includes problems with skill in language, reading, writing, mathematics, reasoning, memory, knowledge retention.
  • Social – refers to issues with empathy, judgment, communication, making and keeping friends, and other social functions.
  • Practical – focuses on problems with self-care, like personal hygiene, job duties, personal finance & organization.

For KVTC it’s critical that parents who suspect their child may have an intellectual impairment seek counseling and help from their qualified mental health and medical professionals. For them we create a therapeutic unit whose services are given below:
