The Special Education Needs (SEN) specialist provides direct and indirect instructional support to students in a positive environment, works closely with staff to ensure best practices are being implemented in the mainstream classroom, and provides support for families of students with special needs. The SEN specialist employs a child-centered, holistic approach to assist students in the following areas:
- Instructs students in academic subjects using a variety of techniques to meet individual needs
- Provides social-emotional support and enhances social skills as determined by the specific needs of each student
- Creates individualized educational programs (IEPs) by employing techniques in an overall positive behavioral support system
- Enables students to successfully develop to their fullest potential by implementing evidence-based practices
In order to offer continuous support and encouragement, QAIS offers both college and guidance counseling to its student body. The College and Guidance Counselor connects with students to offer assistance with university and scholarship research and selection, as well as CV, essay, recommendation letter, and admission preparation for colleges across the globe. The counselor also works with students one-on-one to help meet emotional and academic needs, while focusing on their overall well-being.
