Several studies point to the importance of investing in early childhood - the experiences, and learnings that take place during this critical period of a human’s life largely determine future development. In recent years, countries in the Latin American region have devoted more efforts and resources to expand coverage and strengthen the quality of services serving families and children under the age of five.
 
Effective early childhood development policies require coordinated actions across sectors and the alignment of public resources with strategic priorities and programs. This webinar will consider the recent experience of Peru developing and implementing an innovative government-wide results-based budget for early childhood development.

A deafblind woman was allegedly verbally abused by another rail passenger after her sister briefly removed her face covering to enable her to lipread.

Teenager Saule Pakenaite and her sister Karolina, who has Usher Syndrome, were travelling to Liverpool on 16 July when they were confronted by the individual.In a video shared by the Press Association, the woman can be heard saying “you’re taking the p***, you” to the pair after Saule took off her face covering.

The 16-year-old replied: “Legally she is deafblind. There’s a spectrum. Google it. You don’t know what you’re talking about.” The other passenger goes on to add “deafblind my a***”, before another person intervenes.
