Learning Support

“Quality of Education and Equity for All Students” describes the Multinational School Dhahran’s vision . To meet this challenge, the Learning Support staff is committed to ensuring high-quality services for all students through our continuous efforts in the following areas:

  • Protecting the rights of individuals with learning difficulties
  • Educating students with learning difficulties with their “typical developing” peers in the general education classroom
  • Treating all students equally, regardless of their abilities
  • Supporting students in the major academic areas (e.g. English and Math)
  • Building our teaching strategies on evidence-based-research and best practices
  • Implementing instructional strategies that are founded on Applied Behaviour Analysis (e.g. chaining, shaping, task analysis, etc.)
  • Designing and implementing the Individual Education Plan and enrichment programs
  • Utilising assessments to monitor student progress on a daily basis, measure program effectiveness, and guide instructional practices
  • Simplifying/modifying the curriculum into more accessible formats in order to meet the student’s individual needs
