Dakar Academy in Senegal offers a Special Education program to students in West Africa. 

Special Education Program

Special Education assistance is available for students K-12 who have documented learning challenges. Because of limited time and resources, elementary students are given priority. Basic cognitive and achievement assessments are available as needed; however, parents are strongly encouraged to have their child assessed in their home country when possible.  Annual assessments are done to monitor student progress and program effectiveness.

Our Special Education program is Resource Room based but encourages inclusion. Parents, teachers, and administrators work together to provide the best support possible to help our students achieve their full potential. This can be done through accommodations, modifications, and/or individual instruction. All of these are based on the child’s individual needs.
