Callan Services for Persons with Disabilities National Unit (CSNU) is the head organisation that supports the work of 19 Callan Inclusive Education Resource Centres (IERCs) in 17 provinces across PNG as well as the work of the Callan Studies National Institute (CSNI).
With an estimated 413,000* children with disability in PNG, CSNU fosters access to high-quality education and health care and provides an opportunity for these children to be more fully included in society.
CSNU’s work is essential to the effectiveness of each Centre (IERC) which works directly with persons with disabilities in their communities; and to the Callan Studies National Institute (CSNI) which trains and supports teachers across the country in special (inclusive) education. The Centres provide a safe environment for peoples with disabilities, particularly children, to receive appropriate education and necessary support such as Braille training, speech therapy and assistive equipment. The Centres also support the integration of children with disabilities into mainstream schooling.
