Expertise and Services

Our department comprises three key roles: Special Educators, Speech Therapists, and Psychomotor Therapists. Each role brings a unique set of skills and strategies to support students with various needs.

Speech Therapists

Our Speech Therapists specialize in helping students improve their communication, oral, and written language skills. Through reeducation techniques and therapeutic tools, our therapists work with students to enhance their learning capacity and language abilities.

Special Educators

Our Special Educators provide targeted support to students through push-in and pull-out sessions. With expertise in developing individual lesson plans, these educators ensure that each student’s unique needs are met, fostering both academic growth and personal development.

Psychomotor Therapists

Our Psychomotor Therapists focus on enhancing students’ motor skills, cognitive abilities, and behavior through reeducation techniques and therapeutic tools. They play a crucial role in promoting overall development and learning readiness.

Collaboration and Inclusivity

We strongly believe in collaboration among our team members, teachers, parents, and specialists to create a comprehensive support network for our students. By fostering an inclusive environment, we empower every student to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.

Professional Development

Our department is dedicated to continuous improvement. We will regularly conduct workshops and professional development sessions for specialists to equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to support diverse students effectively.

Parent Engagement

We maintain open communication with parents and guardians, keeping them informed about their child’s progress, challenges, and areas of improvement. We work together to develop strategies that can be applied both at school and at home to ensure the best possible learning experience for each student.

Admission Process

Parents or guardians who would like to enroll their child need to submit an online application through Ahliah’s website. Since students at Ahliah are fully included in regular education classes, they need to sit for a regular entrance exam prepared by the division they are applying to. In addition, the student will have an assessment with the support department specialists, so they can evaluate the points below:

  • The services that the student will need within school hours.
  • If the student is able to follow up with regular education class rhythm with the adaptation and modification that we provide.
  • The difficulties that will need to be tackled in his/her plan of action if accepted.

Results will be communicated to the parents or guardians after the collection of the information provided by the respective division and the support department and the meeting of the admission committee.
