    Afecta bloqueo  a Educación Especial en Ciego de Ávila

    The acquisition of writing paper for the Braille System, contact lenses, magnifying glasses, telescopes, power strips, walking sticks of dissimilar sizes and sound toys for deaf and loss-hearing children are among the main effects of the imperialist blockade on Special Education in Ciego de Ávila, as in all of Cuba.

    Wilfredo Ozuna Rodríguez, director of the Aguedo Morales Reina Special School in the territory, explained that the increased cost of the means used in this type of education is due to the purchase of relief maps, tracing instruments and others whose commercialization is acquired by third countries.

    Ozuna Rodríguez assured that despite this hostile policy, the Cuban State each year allocates millionaire sums so that children, adolescents and young people are guaranteed of teaching and acquire the necessary skills.

    The economic siege of the US government against Cuba also makes it impossible to import batteries for hearing aids, electric wheelchairs for children with physical-motor disabilities, Perkins machines that blind and visually impaired children use in learning, as well as correction glasses with high graduations.
