“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
— Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa
Our LSEN unit will specialise in teaching learners with specific barriers to learning how to overcome and manage these challenges effectively. Our close partnership with Eden Health and Clay Occupational Therapy, also based at Eden Village, positions Eden Academy LSEN unit to effectively lead children and parents through this learning and development process.
We believe that early intervention produces the best results for learners with specific learning difficulties, as well as relieving the pressure from parents as they confront these new circumstances and support their children through their ongoing development.
Our principal objective is to enable learners to overcome their specific learning difficulties within a 2-3 year timeframe, whilst uplifting their sense of self-worth and confidence, after which they can transition into a mainstream educational environment. We believe firmly in a system of Inclusion, where children in both streams associate regularly, teaching learners to respect each other’s capabilities and enabling them to form friendships that stretch beyond academics into sport, arts and social interaction.
