Our Teaching Method

We use an Eclectic approach in selecting the best practices from schools in Australia and North Carolina.  Different teaching methods are borrowed and adapted to suit the requirement of our learners.  We combine different teaching methodologies and approaches to tailor individualized education programs for our children in the EIPIC and Fundamental Academics / Life Skills programs.

Listed below are some of the most common methods we use

Structured Classroom Teaching

Our teachers provide general concepts to the whole group and pair them with individual instruction.

Sensory Integration and Stimulation

We aim to create engaging lessons involving extensive use of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile aids.

Life Skills

Our Life Skills progammes deliver specialized curriculums focusing on fundamental academics together with everyday self-care and advocacy skills.

Music and Arts

Music and arts play a big role in our special needs education as it has been proven that children are able to learn more effectively across all subject areas while enhancing their social and adaptive skills.

“The Starfish Story inspired me to make a difference in the lives of children with special needs, like what that boy did to the starfish that was washed to the shore. Each time we taught a child to talk, walk and grow intellectually, we were making a significant difference in their life. All paths were clearly directed for me to gain the necessary experience, knowledge, and qualifications to set up Divinity - a DIVINE place for all children with special needs that reached our shores.”

“Working with children with special needs is amazing especially when you see their growth and progress in measurable ways. While there may be setbacks in terms of managing hormonal changes, I see the joy on each child's face as they learn new things from me. I feel good and blessed about this career choice that makes a difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families.”

“To be in the presence of any child is considered a blessing. Working in Divinity has given me the opportunity to work with the most special of children in the absolute truest form of the word. Along with dedicated and honest colleagues, it's been a joy to make teaching physical education to them not just a profession but a privilege.”

“Making the change from a corporate environment to special needs education sector was a big leap of faith and a calling in a way. I have always felt the urge to work with children and it is truly a privilege to have this opportunity to work with children so talented yet unique in their ways. In this job, I find that instead of inspiring the children, I am often inspired by their natural and unique creativity which gives me great joy and happiness. Each day the students and I enjoy progression and possibilities that one can never dream of in Divinity. ”
