For optimal learner outcomes, the Support For Learning Department considers each individual learner’s needs and creates an Individualized Educational Plan (I.E.P) that compliments the school’s curriculum.

Moreover, our department is always ready to communicate transparently and extensively with any specialists following the learners up outside the school setting as best fits the learners welfare and optimal learning.

Our department provides support through the following professionals:
