Life-Centered Education Program
The Life-Centered Education (LCE) program is designed to meet the needs of students who have a diagnosed intellectual or developmental disability and require individualized academic and social skill instruction. Students accepted into the program receive customized instruction and support from highly trained special educators and assistant teachers. The LCE program focuses on teaching literacy, mathematics, social skills, and life skills to students with intensive special education needs. Additionally, students are integrated into our school elective classes and optional after-school activities.
The current program is designed to meet the individual needs of up to 6 students in the Middle School. In the 2018-2019 school year, when ISKL debuts their purpose-built, state of the art new campus, additional “Life-Centered Education” classrooms at the Elementary and High School levels will be introduced. The Life-Centered Education High School program will prepare students with essential skills for their next steps after earning their HS diploma.
The Life-Centered Education program is funded by a fee of RM40,000.00 in addition to ISKL tuition fees. The additional fees do not include Occupational or Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists, psych ed testing, and outside therapy sessions.
“The thoughtful inclusion of students with special learning needs is one very practical and explicit way of enhancing a school’s organizational intelligence. By challenging ourselves to do more than what we are already comfortable doing, we engage in a rigorous exercise of collaborative inquiry that supports our collective intellectual growth and social and emotional development.”
