“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”
– Maya Angelou
ICanFlyy offers diverse academic programmes which meet our students’ individualised needs and help them to reach their academic potential. Special educators and paraprofessionals use a multi-sensory approach for group and individualised classes, in traditional and non-traditional classroom settings. Whether our students’ disabilities are intellectual, emotional, physical, or a combination of multiple challenges, our goal is for them to become as independent as they possibly can. An Individual Educational Plan (IEP) is drawn up for every student and revisited every quarter.
One of the most important things to understand about the education curve of a special needs child or adult is that the traditional definition of progress does not apply. Success is not defined in terms of linear academic progression and there is no magic wand with which to tick of an academic to do list.
Each special child is unique and learns at his or her own pace. It is essential to understand and accept both their capabilities and limitations, encourage the achievements, and not chastise, but support any setbacks. In special education, the road is one that’s not easily travelled, but with perseverance, hope, and love, we do our best to make the journey a smooth and fun one.
In a regular classroom, children learn at different rates, some slower than others due to learning difficulties. To help such struggling students with their additional learning needs, ICanFlyy now offers one-on-one academic assistance to junior, middle, and high school students.
