Learners With Special Educational Needs
LWIS Hazmieh is committed to promoting a safe and supportive learning environment in order for learners with special educational needs to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.

At LWIS Hazmieh, we value and respect all learners equally and aim to ensure that all learners have an equal opportunity to engage in the curriculum. We seek to offer our learners with special educational needs a broad, balanced and relevant education and enable them to experience educational success and be fully included in their school community. We recognize that some learners will need additional support during part of their school education to ensure access to the whole curriculum.

LWIS Hazmieh welcomes and accepts all learners who, in the school’s judgment, can benefit from its programs and services and whose needs can be met by the school based on the resources and services available.

The school shall accept as eligible for admission, learners with mild learning support needs. The school shall also consider, on a case by case basis, the admission of learners who require moderate support. The school shall, however, only admit learners for whom it is able to provide suitable resources and support.

Learners with special educational needs are provided with any of the following support options:

EY-Grade 5

·Mainstream class with direct support

·Mainstream class with pull-out assistance

Grades 6-12

·Mainstream class with direct support

·Mainstream class with pull-out assistance

·A special education class with partial integration


LWIS Hazmieh’s special education services include the provision of in class accommodations and modifications (classroom environment, instructional, assignments, test taking and grading) to enable learners to reach their potential. The support enables learners to succeed academically, socially and emotionally. When it is determined that a learner would benefit from additional support outside of the classroom and resources are available, pullout services are provided to meet academic, social, or behavioral needs.

Related services currently available at LWIS Hazmieh are speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, psychomotor therapy and counseling and are provided to learners who require additional support.
