At Collège du Léman, our Learning Support department helps students with diagnosed learning needs such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, ADD, and ADHD.
We strongly believe that all students deserve a high-quality education within a broad, balanced, and relevant curriculum. This enables them to reach their potential, enhance their self-esteem, and enjoy learning.
We work closely with parents, teachers, external therapists, and school counsellors to ensure all out students’ educational needs are met.
Expert Special Educational Needs (SEN) teachers offer classes in numeracy, literacy, and study skills for both Middle and High School students from Grade 6 to 12. Small groups are taught in our classrooms equipped with the latest learning resources, which create a multisensory, hands-on learning experience.
Progress is monitored regularly, and programmes are altered to suit the needs of each student.
Guidance to teachers
In collaboration with external educational therapists, we prepare guidance documents (an Individual Study Plan) for our mainstream teachers. These offer advice on specific strategies and adaptations that can be made to ensure everyone's included. These include:
- Extra time in exams and tests.
- The use of a laptop and educational software.
- Providing an assistant to read to the student and/or write for them.
- Regular breaks and a variety of approaches to manage stress and anxiety.
