Taking an individualised approach to our students’ education, we design lessons and learning goals that are tailor-made for students with a range of learning challenges including those diagnosed with ASD and GDD. 1 to 1 learning within classroom groups allows teachers to target areas of academic need and to develop a curriculum unique to each learner that blends academics and life skills training. We’ve been teaching students with special needs for over 40 years. Kohai is a place where your child can thrive!— Visit school website
Kohai began in 1973 as a summer camp for children with emotional, intellectual, and behavioural disorders. Parents were the driver, encouraging the founders to build out the programming based on the success that the summer program was having. It was formalized as a school in 1976 around the approach that had been adopted in the camp setting, one focused on small-group learning and student-directed instruction. Kohai addresses itself specifically to the needs of children who, simply, learn differently, and who require a setting that offers the kinds of supports that they need. The foremost, often, is an environment that is built with them in mind, and which sees their potential, first, rather than their limitations. Which is exactly what Kohai has been offering—impressively, beautifully, skillfully—for more than 40 years.
