Paragon International School focuses on the individual well-being of students. It doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach, so teachers are highly encouraged to differentiate their instruction, curriculum, & materials to promote meaningful learning for every student.
Providing learning support for students with diverse learning needs is one of the vital components to ensure the quality of the school. In this regard, the Learning support Department works in collaboration with all stakeholders of the school – teachers, teaching assistance, parents and wider community to ensure that individual needs of each referred student are met. One of the many services provided by the department is in-house training for teachers and teaching assistance on the topics of understanding learning differences and giving the right type of intervention. In this respect, the department has been organizing awareness campaigns, such as “Dyslexia Awareness Week” and “Understanding ADHD” that turned into annual events for teachers, parents and students.
Members in the learning support department try to stay updated with the latest interventions and strategies to support students with special needs. All members of the department have taken courses on understanding special educational needs, such as Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism and what approaches work best in teaching students with such conditions.
Additionally, Paragon International School is one of the member schools of SENIAC Local Chapter (Special Educational Needs in Asia) and benefits from the resources of the wider community to give evidence based interventions. The representatives of more than 20 International schools have attended the PD that was held in North Bridge International School to exchange latest intervention approaches.
