    The Step by Step Learning Centre (SSLC) was born out of the personal hardships and experiences of Margaret Kenyi (Founder and Executive Director) while raising her Autistic daughter Ruth in a culture that values productivity above human dignity. At age 16, Ruth had attended, with much difficulty, 16 different schools, both government and private. Most of these did not meet her special needs. SSLC has been running for 12 years, making a difference to the lives of over 35 students. The numbers have been low because SSLC has to maintain a high teacher /student ratio due to the nature of learning challenges of the students. Plus there have been limited resources for special education.

    The success of SSLC has been due to the strong belief that children with special needs have rights just like all other children. Their full potential can be developed and realised when given appropriate education and training. The biggest lesson SSLC has learnt over the years is that the best care for children with special needs involves collaboration between families, communities, schools and medical providers.
