Logos Christian School welcomes children who have learning and/or physical disabilities. However, Logos Christian School will enrol a child with special needs only after the teaching staff ascertains that he or she will benefit from the programme. Logos operates a policy of inclusion, which means that children who require accommodations are fully integrated into regular classes; they are included in all class activities, learning side by side with their peers. A Special Needs Educator provides training to the staff as well as learning support as needed. There is a working ratio of 20:2 i.e. for every class of 20 students; there are no more than 2 students with special learning needs.


To date, the school has successfully enrolled and integrated students with various special learning needs including: children with autism, cerebral palsy, visual impairment, hearing impairment and Down's syndrome.


To aid the process of integration Logos Christian School works with education specialists and therapists, among them physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists. These specialists work with the school to make sure each child gets everything needed to thrive. The therapists work together with the teachers and special education specialist to make modifications and adaptations to the classroom or programme to better facilitate integrated learning. In addition to therapists coming to the school campus, Logos is also in the process of developing an extended network of therapists to provide consultation in the process of developing an individualized education plan (IEP) for each child who requires it.
