Overcoming Challenges at Home and in the Classroom
LEAP is a support education and resource group for parents of children with special needs based in Bangkok. Rose Marie Academy was pleased to host a LEAP forum as in the Nonthaburi area, there is little or no support outside of the school situation for parents to meet, share experiences, and advocate for their child.
The short presentations from expert educationalists and a knowledgeable parent were well received and followed by a lively discussion. It was generally felt that there is a need for both parent support and teacher/parent skills sessions in Nonthaburi. Rose Marie Academy is committed to encouraging parent support as part of its inclusion policy and is happy to host future events.
