Special care for children with intellectual disability

Special Education & Care Centres

Cape Mental Health has three Special Education and Care Centres which cater for 180 individuals with severe and profound intellectual disabilities. 

The centres provide a safe environment, quality day care, and a structured programme that encourages individuals to develop to their full potential. In addition, we offer:

  • ongoing assessment to ensure that the appropriate stimulation programmes are implemented;
  • individual stimulation and group training programmes;
  • a nutritious meal or snack;
  • awareness campaigns to promote the rights of individuals with severe and profound intellectual disabilities;
  • training for parents and caregivers, to enable them to continue the programme activities and goals at home;
  • education and training for staff;
  • Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) programmes to facilitate communication;
  • transport to and from the centres;
  • a safe environment where individuals are treated with dignity.
