Perseverance was formed in 2016 with an objective of providing academic training to children with autism. At Perseverance, we follow a curriculum designed to help inclusion of the students into main stream schools. Every child is special and has specific educational need – we identify the particular concern of the child, discuss it with the parents and develop a programme for the child in accordance with the Special Needs Code of Practice. We also provide (in certain cases) a Statement of Special Educational Needs which states the child’s specific needs.
Elementary school programme
We believe that all children have the right to quality education. After having worked in various inclusive schools and observing the students there, we find the need for early intervention in order to help the child adapt in a regular school environment. The elementary school programme is designed to fulfill this early adaptation and our students start as young as 2.5 years.
We train the children as per their aptitude - we have skill based classes and classrooms. Our trainers are committed towards enabling a smooth transition from Perseverance to a main stream school or a vocational course.
Our four groups are named after the lifecycle of a butterfly, i.e. floret, caterpillar, chrysalis and imago. We believe that with a little support from us, our children would soon find their feet in a regular school or a vocational training centre and have a fulfilling experience ahead.
This is available for all children diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, Learning Disability and High Functioning with Autistic traits.
