Does my child need a Shadow Teacher?
Children with learning difficulties often experience challenges in mainstream schools and require the guidance of Allied Educators or other professionals other than the classroom teacher. A Shadow Teacher is a trained professional who helps children with special needs successfully integrate into a mainstream school environment and learn effectively.
Conditions such as high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, speech and language disorders, mild cognitive deficits and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder may cause some children to struggle in a classroom setting. However, when these children are given the right level of guidance and support, they can also thrive in a mainstream environment.
