A multi-cultural special needs school will open its doors at the Isipingo Beach Primary School, in the new term.
Principal of the school, Bilkees Musthafa, said she is thrilled and excited to deliver their expertise to the children from Isipingo and surrounding areas.
Many parents have requested the team to open in Isipingo and they are proud and grateful to educate the children with special needs.
There are special needs schools in Phoenix, Verulam and Chatsworth, which have been a beacon of light to parents of children with special needs.
Parents who have children with disabilities often find it difficult to find a special school as these children have needs that are unique.
Now, with the establishment of a school for children with learning disabilities, slow pupils, autism, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, ADD/ADHD, developmental disorders, including borderline children from mainstream, who find it difficult to read, spell and cope in classes with big numbers are candidates of this institute.
The school is administered by Mrs Bilkees Musthafa, who dedicated her life to children with special needs, and is a qualified teacher, specialising in special needs education.
The school has made remarkable progress making autistic children understand concepts of sociability and achieving high scores for speech improvement and being more verbal, over the years.
Children who attend the institute for special one-on-one facilitation from mainstream are improving tremendously with reading and spelling making vast differences in their academic performance.
Parents have shown their satisfaction with the progress of their children after joining the special needs school by expressing their views and adding that their children have gained in confidence which has made them want to learn. The child will be called in for an assessment by the school.
Once diagnosis has been received from a medical practitioner and the child is able to cope by school standards and norms, the child is then admitted to the school.
A specially and specifically drawn-up programme will then be conducted by Musthafa and the related special needs school board.
The special needs school has aimed to deliver education through excellence with staff that is qualified and very compassionate and capable.
