THE SMART CLUB
Some learners experience further barriers to learning: among others, those of dyslexia; motor-coordination or perceptual difficulties; the trauma of abuse, or even deficits in hearing. An injection of funding was received in August 2017, specifically to fund the support of a pilot group of learners who experience other learning difficulties. So,
The Smart Club was born.
The Smart Club seeks to help subsidize the support of learners who have various learning difficulties, and which their parents/guardians may well not be able to address due to lack of funding.
Some of the areas in which we are looking to assist, in order to improve the effectiveness of struggling learners’ experience of learning:
- Eye and hearing tests
- Occupational and Speech and Language Therapy assessments and follow up treatment sessions.
- Play Therapy for children traumatised by abuse
- Assessments by Paediatric Psychiatrists in cases of suspected ADD/ADHD/ASD
- Diagnosis of dyslexia by experienced Educational Psychologists
- Specialist classroom facilitators
