THOMAS' STORY PDF Icon Read transcript

Meet Thomas. Academically, he is one of our best distance education students. Thomas is very gifted and he has a great ability to communicate online.

We work with Thomas and his mum to create a learning environment that allows him to excel free from a typical learning environment where he would have to deal with ignorant behaviour.

Distance Education can provide an ideal setting where students with special needs thrive. The learning can be structured and paced to suit the individual, rather than the class.

As you know, the term ‘special needs’ covers a wide variety of student learning differences. Each child is unique in their needs. Some like to play with a stress ball while reading. Others like to kick a ball for 10 minutes between lessons. Distance Education is flexible enough to accommodate. This may not be so in a traditional school environment.

Parents of special needs children have told us that Distance Education is a great choice.
