Experience Level: Intermediate
Our son Liam (11 years, down syndrome, single minded but totally charming) is successfully included at a local mainstream Primary School. After a long struggle to get him into any school at all, he is a motivated and a happy 4th grade student and made a huge progress during the school year.
His primary school is a small (one class per year) mainstream, catholic primary school (grade 1-7) in the city center of Cape Town. It has no previous experience with special children and is an under-resourced government school (40 children per class) - but the school represents the true rainbow colour nation South Africa and is open minded enough to go the exciting road of inclusion. They are very enthusiastic about the positive impact our son's inclusion had on the school and they are a very committed and caring team.

Liam needs a new classroom facilitator, to adapt the grade curriculum to his special needs. You dont need experience in special education - you need to:
- respect diversity and value all people equally
- be persistent, have a sense of humor and be open to question yourself
- be able to improvise, be creative and fun

We can offer family accommodation in the Cape Town city center (all interesting places and public transport in walking distance), training, support and supervision (social worker) advise with visa.

School terms are:
4th term 2010: 4 October - 10 December 2010
1st term 2011: 19 January to 1 April
2nd term : 11 April to 24 June
3rd term : 18 July to 30 september
4th term : 10 October - 9 December 2011

Our school day is from 8.00 to 12.00 and we live a 10 minute walk away from the school.
