Multikids Inclusive Academy was established in February 2010 and is governed by a Board of Directors. MKA grew out of a small special school founded by Sigrid Kootstra, called COLEDIC. Mandy and Sigrid worked together to co-found Ghana's first and only inclusive school, educating children in a co-existing learning environment. MKA combines specialist creative, academic and vocational teaching and learning based on the UK National Curriculum, for students from 6 months to 21 years. The environment of inclusion is only possible through the intervention of excellent therapeutic services. Our inclusive school believes passionately that all children have the right to an excellent inclusive curriculum. To this end we have developed a Culture of Inclusion which promotes:
Specialised learning environments for typical learners and typical learners who may have a specific learning challenge like Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Aspergers, Mild Autism.
Specialised learning environments for learners with Special Educational Needs like Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Global Delay.
EVERY CHILD MATTERS AND EVERY CHILD IS ON AN ACCREDITED PATHWAY.
Comments from parents:
This film looks at the different ways in which Multikids Academy (MKA) tackles the stigma of children having special or additional needs by providing qualtity education. This documentary illustrates how inclusive education can help pupils and students previously excluded from classrooms, but most importantly how our children can become valued as individuals and as learners.
