At GESS, we inspired and challenged young minds as a caring and committed international community to achieve and reach students’ potential to the fullest.
The Learning Support department is a specialised intervention programme aimed to support students with learning difficulties or differences. The programme is implemented by qualified teachers with specialised knowledge and skills. The main goal is to support students reach their full potential; the department aims to do so through academic, social and emotional support.
Working together with class teachers, the Learning Support department will support with assessments, test completion, academic support: reviewing or previewing concepts/skills, planning for homework assignments, as well as modifying strategies and content. Students will receive support in small groups or individually.
The Learning Support department liaises with outside agencies who provide therapy for students; such as, speech or occupational therapy, educational psychologists and paediatricians.
