MAITS is a charity providing international training and support to the disability and mental health sectors in low and middle income countries. Therapists and special educators volunteer their time to share their expertise with organisations in their own country or abroad. MAITS provides grants to assist with travel and accommodation costs, both to the trainers and to trainees (criteria apply).
In addition to facilitating face-to-face training, MAITS has an ongoing programme of resource development, designing tools that assist in the support and inclusion of individuals with particular needs, whether it be at home, school or elsewhere in the community, in low-resource settings. These are available via the Resources page on the website.
