HOSPITAL SCHOOL

Hospital SchoolThe Hospital School is aimed at discovering the educational needs of the sick children and serving them throughout the hospitalization period. On average, 800-1200 children annually use the services of the Hospital School.

 

The hospital school offers a special educational programme for each child. At entrance the hospital school teachers evaluate the abilities and the needs of the child in order to set up an individualized program that meets the knowledge level and the needs of the child. Due to the chronic nature of the illness, many of our pupils have missed days at school and may need to have a specially developed program to fill in the gaps.

 

The hospital school staff organizes the education of the chronically ill children according to the state education curriculum. However, the means and methods of teaching may differ since DAA Hospital teachers use interactive and innovative approaches in teaching, including:

 

  • Educational developmental games
  • Specially developed worksheets and diaries, as well as subject diaries
  • Hands-on activities
  • Festival

 

The combination of group and individual work helps the children to cope with their illness and to express themselves, exchange their experiences with others, build up confidence and self esteem, and finally to reintegrate themselves back into their home schools.

 

The hospital school staff works hard to establish connections among different educational institutions within the special education project in order to better serve the needs of the children.
