The Special Education Department at King Abdullah Academy operates on ethical principles, practice standards, and professional policies in ways that respect the diverse needs and characteristics of our student body and school community.
Our aim is to provide tailored, individualized, and culturally responsive learning environments. We use culturally and linguistically appropriate assessments and procedures which accurately measure students’ aptitudes and abilities to maximize the outcomes of individuals with learning difficulties and special needs. We use periodic assessments and strategic interventions to monitor our students progress on a quarterly basis identifying tangible, evidence-based goals.
The Special Education Department works in close cooperation with parents, informing them of their educational rights and safeguards as well as advising them of available resources. Special Education at KAA actively seeks parent/guardian knowledge about their children when planning and evaluating special education services empowering families as partners in the educational process.
