The Centre for Child Development Research and Referral of the University of Cape Coast has held a workshop to train teachers from Primary Schools in Cape Coast.

It was on the theme “Effective Teaching Strategies for Handling Children with Reading and Handwriting Difficulties in an Inclusive Setting.”The Headmaster of Ola Presbyterian School addressed the teachers.
