In support of USAID/Nepal’s Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Activity, implemented by CAMRIS, we seek a technical expert to lead an upcoming assessment of the use of an early detection of disabilities tool developed under USAID/Nepal’s Reading for All program. The purpose of the assessment is to provide quality assurance while determining whether the early detection tool use to detect and diagnose disabilities in an educational context was understood by head teachers/teachers and whether the early detection tool correctly identified students with a functional limitation.
Activities for the assessment will include following up with students identified as having a functional limitation (“much difficulty” and above) and conducting Government of Nepal-approved eye or hearing examinations. The assessment also will hold key informant interviews with head teacher/teachers who received support from the Reading for All program on how they used the early detection tool. The assessment will require writing up a short report.
