About Multiple Disabilities

When a child has several different disabilities we say, that he/she has multiple disabilities. For example, a child may have difficulties in learning, along with controlling her movements and/or with hearing and vision. The effect of multiple disability can be more than the combination of two individual disabilities.

A child who having multiple disabilities should receive help as early as possible so that he/she can be helped to achieve his/her potential, and so that his/her disabilities will not become worse.
