You are invited to participate in the upgrading of our Special needs Tutor centre. Lekkerland Academic Centre tutors learners with different educational learning difficulties, on a daily basis. Our dedicated Tutor works with learners with Touretts, Dyslexia, severe ADHD and other emotional difficulties. Our learners range in age from 7-12 years. The learners also receive Neurofeedback therapy every week.
Our centre desperately need to be upgraded to suit our learners learning needs better. We are currently renting a single garage size room in a house and the learners share the toilet facilities with the occupants of the house.
We plan to upgrade the bigger garage space into the classroom as well as build a bathroom for the learners. We also plan to build a "carport" where the learners wil be able to do outside experiments and explore while it is sunny or raining. Our centre has a big collection of childrens books that is currently stored in an outside room, which we plan to equip with bookselves to make it more accessable for the learners. We also plan to aquire new learning materials more suited for our Special needs learners.
Our Tutor has been teaching learners with various difficulties for more than 18 years. She feels very passionate about creating the right emotional environment where the learners feel part of a family, feel accepted and are encouraged to learn, grow and succeed in their lives. She believes that learners with learning difficulties learns better when they feel safe and accepted.
