Its purpose is to provide psychopedagogical support for children with autism.
It all started with a child named Joseph, the eldest of a family of four.
At two, he was not waiting. It is at this age that an ENT discovers in Yaoundé that Joseph suffers from a significant decrease in hearing.
At this point, the process of treatment and correction led by several specialists begins. This process lasts 2.5 years. During the treatment time of his hearing loss, not hearing, he could not speak.
The lack of hearing will therefore disturb the language to the point where some specialists will ask parents (Arnold and Beatrice) to enroll this child in a school of mute.
By the grace of God and the intervention of several specialists (audiologist, psychologist, psychomotor, neuro-pediatrician, speech therapist, educators all supervised by parents) Joseph, at age 5, begins to hear better.
Following the hearing problem, Joseph does not speak, he has difficulties in communication and social interaction.
Because of his difficulties, Joseph develops a visual learning. As this type of learning is not developed in many schools, Joseph abandons French schools to join an English-speaking international school that practices differentiation. This school agrees to collaborate with Joseph's parents and they provide the educators with ideas and tools for his education.
To accelerate the process of Joseph's speech reeducation and to enable him to use t To accelerate the process of Joseph's speech reeducation and to enable him to use the PECS method for better communication and social interaction, his parents designed, used and made available to specialists and the school tools from Information and Communication Technologies (books, videos, maps, software, educational websites, ...) adapted to his needs.
