EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT & INTERVENTION CENTRE

DSC_1484.JPG

The Ministry of Education in collaboration with Church Teachers’ College: Mandeville on February 19, 2019 opened the Educational Assessment and Intervention Centre to cater to children with Special Needs.

The Centre currently offers assessment for children between 4-16 years of age to identify special educational needs that Parents, Children and Teachers might have recognised but require proof to be better able to deal with these issues at the earliest stages so that the corrective measures can be instituted to assist the child/ren to function in the normal school system and the wider society.

The Educational Assessment and Intervention Centre will overtime help to develop programmes to assist/overcome some of these challenges.

Church Teachers’ College: Mandeville now offers as part of its curriculum a Bachelor of Science Degree in Special Education and prospective students who have special interest in this area can apply.
