KSCCSN Kiribati School and Centre for Children with Special Needs is the only school in Kiribati that provides services to children with disabilities and currently educates over 230 children. It is also the main avenue for ensuring child protection in a society where there is still significant stigma attached to disability. KSCCSN’s staff are empowered to deliver effective therapeutic practice to the children.
The School for Children with Special Needs was established in 1991. The school caters for students with a range of impairments. Sign language (Australian) and braille are taught. Where possible, the school uses the approved I-Kiribati educational curricula, but given the age ranges and variety of impairments, this can be challenging.
