Is FootPrints the right school for your special needs child?

  • Has your child struggled to keep up with the pace of other children in a remedial school environment?
  • Is your child higher functioning and you are finding that government special needs schools are not keeping up with their individual pace?
  • Does your child have general developmental delays making it difficult to find the right school?
  • Has your child experienced problems due to accidents, birth trauma, hereditary disorders, dyslexia, autism or other medical conditions?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, we might be the right special needs school for your child.


We run three phases at FootPrints

We cater for learners between the ages of 6 and 18 years. Class sizes are small to cater for individual needs, maximum 10 pupils per class. Termly an Individual Development Plan (I.D.P.) is revised for each child. An I.D.P. promotes the unique growth of academic, social and emotional skills designed specifically for your child.
