Dynamics International School opened in July 2019 to offer an alternative to mainstream education for international families in Singapore and support for children with learning difficulties.

Dynamics International School helps to fill a much-needed gap for special needs education in Singapore, where the choice of schools is limited for students with mild academic learning difficulties through to severe intellectual and physical disabilities.  

Located next to the Dynamics Therapy Centre in Orchard Road, this is a small private school currently running three classes in Reception through to Grade 2 for “students who require academic support or simply benefit from a different type of instruction.” The Dynamics Therapy Centre has been offering paediatric therapies since 2005, and this marks its first move into primary, full-time education. The school, which opened in July 2019, is registered with the Committee for Private Education (CPE).

Teaching at Dynamics International School follows the UK National Curriculum combined with the International Primary Curriculum, which the school says ensures that it can be "truly inclusive and accessible to children and young people with exceptionally diverse needs. Lessons are combined with speech therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy as required, which can be offered by the Centre's in-house team of therapists. 

The school also offers a school readiness programme, to prepare students for mainstream schooling, and a special support programme that focuses on areas such as social skills, creative skills, computer skills and daily living skills.

As a small school that's built on the foundations of a well-established therapy centre, it appears well equipped to offer an alternative to mainstream education. Class sizes are small, with four to eight students in each class; teachers are qualified in special education or psychology; and all students have access to facilities at the neighbouring Dynamics Therapy Centre including an indoor therapy gym, indoor play areas, and occupational, speech and language therapists.

There's a teacher to child ratio of 1:4 or 1:1 depending on the child’s ability.

Yael Sasson, Director of Dynamics International School: "Since 2005, we have been passionate about helping children with unique educational needs, and our core expertise lies in having a wide range of in-house therapists who address these needs. The Singapore landscape has very few schools who are addressing the current demand of special educational needs inclusion in a mainstream setting. Even fewer have a full range of in-house expertise relating to occupational therapy, speech therapy, educational therapy, psychologists, early intervention and physiotherapy, which we can organise in a timely manner depending on student's needs.

“Students who enroll in Dynamics International School will be able to receive support in their educational journey as needed; establishing skills and confidence to be ready for mainstream setting in a large classroom or being supported in learning mainstream curriculum while addressing individual’s educational needs or having an alternative curriculum to address functional skills in communication and daily living skills with close therapists’ support.”

Admission and fees
Dynamics International School, which follows a January to December academic calendar, is exercising a rolling enrollment and currently recruiting students for term three and four of 2019 and for January 2020 classes. In addition to meeting the entrance requirements, all students will have an interview and school tour with the school principal; some students may be asked to attend a trial lesson and an assessment with an educational psychologist. Annual tuition fees are $30,000.
