How Louis Center started!
A good education for your children is essential these days. As most children
can conform and adapt to regular schools there are children who cannot.
Finding out as a parent that there is something different with your child is
a shock; dreams and expectations you would have for your child might not
come true and it takes a great emotional adjustment to look for another
option for your child. Having a child who requires a different approach in
learning does not mean that he/she is not intelligent. Their brains are just
wired differently and the challenge is to find out how a child can acquire
knowledge and live to his/her fullest potential.
As a mother of 2 and principal of Louis Center I am very proud to present to
you; Louis center for children with special needs.
Working with children and their education has always been my interest.
However, found myself completing a Degree in Business instead. After
working in that line for a while the job satisfaction was not there for me.
Since teaching is in my blood (my father is a retired secondary school
teacher, teaching English), decided to follow my inclination and pursued a Degree in
Education. During my period as a teacher my observation was that certain
children were always backward and found great difficulty in acquiring
knowledge. Started researching the field of special children and realized
that these children needed a completely different approach in the teaching
and learning process. My passion took over in this area and decided to
further my education in special education and completed a Diploma in
Learning Disorders & Language Development and a Diploma in Child Psychology
After working in a special education center in Kuala Lumpur for some time,
life brought me and my children back to Seremban, the place of my birth.
Here, the opportunity arose for me to give one-on-one therapy to children
with special needs. Eventually the parents of the children started urging me
to open a full time school. Thanks to the inspiration the children in the
one-on-one sessions gave me and with the constant support and help of the
children’s parents, it gave me the opportunity to establish Louis center for
children with special needs in January 2010.
Louis center is a one-stop center where the children receive various
intervention therapies under one roof. Our main focus in Louis center is to
create a loving safe and home-like environment where a child can reach his
or her full potential in all areas of his or her life, from academic and
social skills to living skills.
As the principal of Louis center I am very grateful that over time a team of
therapists/teachers who share the same passion as me have helped build this
center into what it is today; all striving to find the right approach for
each individual student and acknowledging every small and big step the
students make in reaching their potential.
Working with children with special needs is a day to day adventure that
gives us unexpected surprises, lots of joy and giggles and it brings out the
best in us.
