Abstract

Open & Distance Learning as a strategy for reaching carers is a neglected area. Parents & carers are typically in long term contact with children. If they can be helped to acquire needed information and skills, we can make a critical difference to the development of children. It is difficult to determine the focus of inputs, as it is unclear how to provide access to inputs to carer groups that may not be literate, and have limited access to technology in terms of resources and familiarity. It is important for practitioners in the field to consider how ODL can be provided in effective and interactive ways. // Paper ID 239
