Nokuthula Special School is a school for Learners with special educational needs who have Severe Intellectual Disabilities.
The school caters for learners ranging from ages 3 to 18 years and represent the total spectrum of the South African community. Our school is a non-profit organization which caters for learners with Severe Intellectual and Physical disabilities. The language of learning and teaching at our school is English, as well, as various African Languages and the school offers alternative methods of communication for Learners who are non verbal.
Nokuthula Centre was established in 1984, by doctors and nurses of Alexandra Clinic, parents and members of the community who saw a need for a Centre for children with Severe Intellectual Disabilities. The children were identified when they came for physiotherapy, medical attention and stimulation at Alexandra clinic.
There were no centres for children with disabilities. The school was forced by circumstances to move to Marlboro where it was housed in a warehouse. In January 2018 we embark on a new journey at our new premises in Lyndhurst.
Every learner is provided with a holistic, stimulating dynamic and nurturing environment according to varying abilities.
To provide a real, exciting, creative and individualized curriculum that is accessible to all learners ensuring a holistic learning environment.
The school is very proud of all its accomplishments during the past three decades in being able to improve the lives of so many learners who have benefited from all the school has to offer.
