Otjiwarongo / Namibia
(affiliated to the Special Needs Network / Autism & Aspergers Namibia)
...is a Primary and Pre Primary School for Learning Support,
a learning centre in Otjiwarongo for children with different special needs or learning deficiencies.
This can be a mental or physical disability, ADHD or any learning problem.
Actually we cater for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders,
Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, Down Syndrome,
Cerebral Palsy, Dyspraxia, Epilepsy and ADHD,
as well as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia and "typical learners".
Each child has the possibility to learn individually and to
progress at his own speed.
It is the aim to reintegrate learners that came for a Time Out (f.e. because of ADHD or Dyslexia) or that made the expected progress, into mainstream schooling. This can be continued with us, because we have an inclusive approach, or at another school.
Other learners with severe handicaps or nursing needs, that cannot be included into a mainstream school, can stay with us and progress with their social and cognitive development.
Actually we (6 teacher/trainer and therapists) cater for a group of up to 30 learners, aged 4-16 years (grade Pre-9).
