School for child with special needs

Postby Simbahdebthom » Wed 5 Jun 2013 23:02 GMT

Hi, I've just joined this forum.
I'm looking for help finding a school for my daughter, she is 13 and has learning difficulties. She is statemented and currently attends a special school.
Is there a school/schools which might be better suited to her for her needs?
She also struggles in large groups, how large are the class sizes? She is currently in a class of 10.
I will be extremely grateful of any help you can give me! Thanks

Hi there,
I assume you didn't get a reply as nobody had experience or advice to give for your situation.
We live in Sannat on Gozo. There is a primary school here with a wing for special needs children. Although it probably won't be appropriate for your daughter, you may be able to get better information from the school (rather than this forum) about local options. Contact details:
Gozo College Sannat Primary and Special Unit
Address: Sannat Road, Sannat. SNT 9020
Tel. No: 21551406, 21559202

wiki lists the following Special Needs Schools (Skejjel għall-Bżonnijiet Speċjali) - not sure why the one in Sannat is missing (maybe because its not a standalone school ?)

Guardian Angel School - Abela Scolaro Street, Ħamrun
Mater Dei Special School - Misraħ il-Barrieri Street Msida
