For Professionals

EduExcellence follows an approach whereby neuro-development is viewed and understood within an eco-systemic approach. To this end, our professional staff refrains from diagnosing or labelling behaviour or symptoms. In support of this approach, we generally prefer to provide verbal feedback and avoid report writing as far as possible.

Having said that, we understand that when liaising with fellow professional’s these activities might be required and as such we offer the following criteria and scope of service to support referring professionals to make informed decisions about EduExcellence as a possible option for shared patients.

As inclusive school, we offer two main services, that of a mainstream school and a skills centre for learners not able to comply with standardised academic outcomes.

The following may be used as criteria for referrals and placements:

EduExcellence Schools Scope
  • Mainstream learners between the ages of 4 and 18 presenting with an Average Intellectual to Above Average Intellectual Abilities.
  • So-called remedial learners between the ages of 4 and 18 years presenting with an Average Intellectual to Above Average Intellectual Ability. These learners are integrated into our small (max 12), individualised classrooms and supported with remedial activities. The need for concessions will be determined and accommodations will be maid accordingly to assessment recommendations.
  • Leaners presenting with symptoms associated with Neuro-Developmental Delay, ADD, ADHD, Sensory Integration Issues, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, high functioning Autism and Aspergers (previous term). 
EduSkills Centres Scope
  • In line with our inclusive philosophy, we extent our scope in our EduSkills Centres to include learners between the ages of 4 and 19 years who have fallen off the mainstream grid by failing two or more years in the formal academic mainstream.
  • Learners in need of an adapted academic curriculum in line with their personal pace and level of performance. We determine their placement after assessment and the creation of their own Individual Development Map, which will be monitored and adapted annually.
  • Learners presenting with symptoms associated with: Global Developmental Delay, Down Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum, Below Average and Borderline Intellectual Ability. 

TheraEd, our unique and well-researched approached is based on Educational Neuroscience, and utilised extensively in all classrooms (EduExcellence Schools and EduSkills Centres). The specific TheraEd programmes and implementation thereof are determined after the Individual Development Map has been completed with results obtained from our annual assessments. Compulsory professional development is offered to all teaching staff to be able to integrate TheraEd as a daily curricular activity, thereby ensuring optimal development for each child.
