About

This is a challenging but rewarding special needs school project that caters to children with development delays as well as vision and hearing impairments. There are several students who are deaf, and sign language is commonly used to help communicate with the children. Some of the children live with autism, Down’s syndrome and are being provided speech therapy.

The children are separated into small departments, classes of 5-6 students per group, and focus on hearing impaired, visually impaired and also mentally impaired children. The school is supporting over 200 per year with the majority of work with kids 4 years - 12 years old. Volunteers are needed to help with this personal interaction with the children. Volunteers can also work with speech therapy, language and physical therapy.

This project can be combined with the Spanish Language Immersion option.

School semesters from March-June, and then August through end of November.
