we are a family of 4: Andrew & Micha run a small design studio silk-screening and painting fabric in the back of our family house. our daughter Lena studies architecture at the University. our 17 year old son Liam is the first ever learner with Down Syndrome included in Grade 9 at the German School (English medium branch). we need a classroom assistant for about 16 hours a week to help him fit into mainstream.

inclusion is something very new to South Africa and we are an absolute model project. its exciting and innovative and requires your creativity, passion and some energy to be an advocate for human rights.
I am a social worker with lots of ideas and experience in inclusion. i am active at the school and can give you step by step advise and support. you are needed in design&technology, art, music, film, 2 hours one-on-one literacy and maths and an hour library. any ideas from your side to develop the inclusion further is more than welcome.
the next school term are: 18 April - 23 June and 24 July - 22 September 2017. we can discuss staying for more than the term (visas usually run 3 months) but it is important that you stay for at least the whole term.
