Thanks for the last replies - this forum is alive and kicking.

We have looked at all the international schools on the web - yes the ISM school is the only one that specifically mentions a stream to accommodate additional learning needs. From the post, it seems that the ISM model is well placed


The fees for the ISM school are $30k pa - this is a small fortune!!! Incl the support stream fees, building fund etc.

The keys for us will be - curriculum, the teaching staff (attitude and aptitude).

Home schooling would be a second option - we would have to source Uni (phycology / education) students, teacher cum stay at home mums after having children looking for extra cash, or early child care workers. Schooling gives the parents a break.

There must be other people over there in a similar situations.

Cheers

JM

You might want to check out King's School Manila. It is a smaller community school and one of the teachers has actual experience working with children on the Autism spectrum. If you go to BSM, they would say your child doesn't fit in their current set up, and in spite of their resources -they will say they do not have the resources to handle kids who are not within the bell curve.
I heard ISM has special education teachers, and they will respond to your email promptly unlike BSM.

I forgot to add that King's school Manila has smaller class sizes with two teachers in each class. It is not in the Fort, but it is about 10-15 minutes away as it is going against traffic during rush hour and is located by the Bay area.

The ISM school knocked us back

What about the LindenTree institute

Also, what are the chance of getting tutors to homeschool to an international curriculum?

Thanks

Hi Jim,

Your post is over a year already. Any luck in finding a good school for your kid? We are moving to Manila in 2015 and would need a school for our son as well. We were told that a lot of help is available nowadays in Manila area and even the extra therapies my son needs can be done at home. What did you opt for? Are you satisfied with the school and it's quality? Is your kid happy with the school? Sorry for all the questions...hoping that you could help me out make the right decision.

Thank you in advance...

Trying to find my way around this website...it looks like since I'm still new, my capabilities to send a PM is off.

I did get a message from another member in regards to another issue but I could only read it and not reply.
