Remedial School for Grades 000 – 7
A two week observation period is conducted in the Pre Primary school and a 1 week observation is conducted in the Primary School. The child is observed in their current grade. During the observation the educator assesses, observes and monitors the child. At the end of the observation period a case conference with the educator and Birdwood’s Therapeutic Head is held to determine whether the programme offered at the school suits the specific needs of the child. Parents are given feedback following the observation period.
Birdwood school offers a remedial programme for children with cognitive potential falling in the average range. If an intellectual or developmental assessment is performed and a child is not performing in the average range, it is at the discretion of the school to determine whether to grant an observation period or not. Once the observation period is completed and the child has been fully observed and assessed, it is at the discretion of the school to determine whether the child would benefit from the remedial programme being offered, given their cognitive potential and developmental delays.Specific admission criteria
