Special Education

HCRA serves over 400 students, aged 3 to 22, including those enrolled in the Center for Vocational Training. The students in Special Education (SE) exhibit a range of disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, and learning difficulties. The primary aim of the SE program is to create an environment that enhances and optimizes each individual’s learning abilities, both academically and functionally. This approach enables them to realize their full potential and actively participate as members of the community. With a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:10, every child receives personalized attention tailored to their needs. Classes are organized into specific groups to facilitate the objectives of SE.
