SPECIAL NEEDS EDUCATION

Teachers follow a natural language acquisition approach through the maximum use of the auditory modality and application of auditory verbal principles. Through natural learning experiences and interaction, learners are exposed to intensive, day-long listening with the use of appropriate hearing technology, which parents extend to their home environments. The natural learning refers to the fact that the learners are taken on outings or participate in themed activities, specific to the week’s module. Classrooms also feature adjacent observation rooms from which the learners can be observed and guided.

Supportive specialists and therapists such as audiologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and a social worker are present every step of the way to assist children to overcome various challenges and work closely with the teachers to facilitate progress in speech-language acquisition.
