My six year old son was asked to leave his international school within three weeks of his start date. Although this was traumatic at the time, it has since turned out to be the very best thing that could have happened to him. W was not able to read or sit still and pay attention in school. During an initial reading assessment carried out for W at this time, he made so many errors that he could not be graded. After 12 months at the Creative Garden, (now called The Innovative Learning Center), W could read. After a further term, W's reading was sufficiently strong enough to allow him to be able to return to an International school at the correct grade level with no academic difficulties. More importantly to me however, was that W changed from a child that refused to try, to one that believed he was smart and would continuously try until he got it right.
