Our Challenge Areas

For Cohort 2, SEEd.Lab has crafted challenges and problem statements, which are reflections of real-world problems from 4 domains: ​

  • Education & Skill​

  • Food & Agriculture ​

  • Health & Hygiene ​

  • Personal & Financial Security ​

We have zoomed in on areas of problem and opportunities that could be explored further in fulfilling the mission of SEEd.Lab to tackle social pain points in Malaysia, through the use of digital and technology. ​

 

Education & Skill - Empowering teachers and/or parents of children with learning disabilities ​


Challenge Area: Empowering teachers and/or parents of children with learning disabilities ​ The Department of Social Welfare (DSW) recorded a total of 453,258 registered Persons with Disabilities in Malaysia, 34.8% of whom are facing learning-disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, cerebral palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. ​ Research has shown that early intervention for children with learning disabilities can improve a child’s overall development. Children who receive appropriate education and support at key developmental stages are more likely to gain the social skills essential to their interactions and participations as a member of the larger society. Parents of these children can learn early on how to help their child improve mentally, emotionally, and physically throughout the developmental stages with assistance from teachers and specialists. ​ Learning disabilities are becoming an increasingly common challenge that impacts many children and parents in Malaysia. Over 19,000 children have been diagnosed with learning disabilities while many more may have not been diagnosed and/or unregistered. The low uptake of registration with DSW may be attributed due to fear of stigma and discrimination among parents, as well as lack of sufficient knowledge or tool to aid in early detection. We look for potential ideas or solutions that can create a positive impact on the lives of young children facing developmental challenges by empowering teachers and/or parents to identify and assist children who may face any learning disabilities through early age screening (3 - 6 years old)​. Problem statement:​
How might we create innovative solutions to identify and support children (3 -6 years old) who may face learning disabilities so that the teachers/parents can initiate early intervention.​ Sources: ​
