Association of Disability Service Providers (ADSP) was founded by Mrs. P. Ullagen in 2003 as a day care centre with five children with cerebral palsy and learning difficulties. In 2009, a building was constructed in an acquired land and ADSP started to be recognised as a Special Education Needs School by the Ministry of Education and Human Resources.
ADSP is registered organisation at the Registrar of Associations. It has a board comprising of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, treasurer and other members. It is managed by the director, Mrs. P. Ullagen and the administrative staff. ADSP consists of a multidisciplinary team, specialized teachers, assistant teachers, carers, occupational therapist, speech and language therapist, academic program coordinator, general practitioner, psychologists, school drivers and helpers.
ADSP has taken the initiative to take our younger students of pre-elementary and elementary 1 classes to indoor play and learning centers, which offer spacious indoor play areas to our younger students. The equipment found in these centers encourage children to be creative, use their imagination and get involved in exploratory play.
Physical play gives them the opportunity to develop agility, balance and improve their coordination. Furthermore, the children are stimulated enough to express themselves verbally with their teachers and peers.
ADSP recognises that Mauritius is becoming more digitalised every day. ICT skills are therefore mandatory skills which all children, adolescents and young adults of our school should develop.
Having a well-equipped ICT lab will enable the school to conduct ICT classes at all levels, especially with the prevocational class students so that they are exposed to new technology and develop functional ICT skills how to manipulate computers, fill digital forms, surf the internet, type and print a document.
