It has been a privilege to have supported SKILD’s (Smart Kids with Individual Learning Differences) pilot project in Lebanon to develop approaches that help pupils with special needs to continue in mainstream education.
Parents and teachers have reported improved in pupil performance and behaviour; Teachers are better equipped to assess and teach children with learning differences; SKILD learnt more about implementing special education services. The pilot’s achievements were used to influence the Ministry of Education target to recruit 30 special needs educators to scale up this knowledge and help more schools in Lebanon to improve the wellbeing of children who are at social, emotional and academic risk.
“We are grateful to MAI for coming alongside SKILD on this highly worthy project and in such a timely fashion. Thank you”
