SEN Centre

Special Education Need Centre

The Assam Valley School is fully committed to helping the students with different Learning Difficulties in the best possible way. Given the increase in the numbers of pupils with a variety of learning challenges and special educational needs attending AVS, the management decided to establish special needs resource center to provide additional teaching support to the pupils.

The School has appointed a Special Education Teacher to provide additional teaching support for children with special needs who have been fully integrated into mainstream school and who need such support. In addition he functions as an adviser and liaises with other teachers, parents and relevant professionals in the children’s interest.

The School has an experienced Internal and External Psycho-Educational professionals, who has expertise in Special Educational Needs, behaviour management, removing social barriers and developing emotional well-being.  All students are screened for their cognitive ability when they first join using DALI screening tool.  These results are explained and shared with staff. Students who are identified as having below average standard scores are then assessed using more in depth Psychometric tests.  Any student that is identified as having complex needs are referred for SEN centre, for the ‘assess, plan, do, review process in order to meet the needs of that student.

We track the progress of all our students and as professionals, we regularly discuss any concerns we have as well as celebrate achievement. When a student is not making expected progress in a particular area of learning the School can identify the need for additional support.  This will then be discussed with parents/careers and the student where necessary.
