With a newly reconstructed building, children friendly facilities and equipment for kindergarten and elementary school we offer our children with special needs the opportunity for a full-time special education program. Qualified and experienced staff is providing intensive education based on individual needs of our students as well as number of therapy options and extracurricular activities. We work on developing our children's best potential and skills, we give them the opportunity to develop also the forms of communication they need in case they are not able to use spoken language. We use sign language and all forms of alternative augmentative communications based on individual needs (pictures, objects, pictograms) and involve children in music therapy every morning. During the education program we use modern teaching equipment, such as tablets and multisensory room equipment.
All of our staff speaks English.
We provide an extensive integration/inclusion program for our children and believe strongly our students can do everything that their more lucky peers can do.
