The Sudan, as a developing country, is increasingly concerned about the development of its young children. For example, a Kindergarten Institute promotes the development and education of young children, and a Directorate of Special Education in the Ministry of Education provides staff and resources to young children with disabilities. The Sudan’s efforts are broad, but do not include screening to determine developmental status, highlighting areas of underdevelopment, or undertaking intervention strategies to stimulate the total development and education of young children. However, the Sudan has a private university in Omdurman, Ahfad University for Women, which is addressing the screening and early intervention issues.
