Special Needs School
Indonesia has many islands which are rich in culture and heritage. The Indonesians believe ‘ Bhinneka Tunggal Ika’ which means, although we all are different but we are one. Keeping this diversity in mind our school offers curriculum in two languages- Bahasa Indonesia and English Language. This helps us to accept students from all nationalities. Our classrooms are also named after the different islands of Indonesia, namely, Bali, Sumatera, Papua, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Jawa.
SLC Special Needs School aims to provide a holistic development to the child so he/she can grow to his/her maximum potential.
SLCs unique structure enables our students to receive the appropriate educational services which focuses on their ability and not their disability.
Unique structure of SLC
The unique structure of SLC has the following five pillars:
What process does my child go through before entering SLC?
Your child will join a 3 day trial inside the classroom along with the clinical psychologist. The psychologist, teachers and head of special needs educator will perform assesments using different test and observational methodology. These assesments will assist in identifying the child’s strength, areas of concern and further decide the appropriate class group which is best suited to obtain the child’s maximum growth.
At the end of the assessment a report is issued whereby parents and clinical physcologist can further discuss the result and recommendations of how to help their child.
After the admission process is completed at school an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) is made for the child. This will be given to the parents within 2-3 weeks after joining the school.
