School enrolment has already taken place and we know that it is not always possible to find an establishment which suits your child, especially with a handicap.
We have, therefore, selected several specialised primary and secondary schools in Brussels, known for the quality of their education.
All subjects are taught in French.
Ecole Anne Misonne
The Anne Misonne school is a small school – ASBL- welcoming around 20 children who are unable at the present time to find their place in primary education such as it is organised in our country.
It is a balance between normal and specialised education.
These children, have a diversity of problems, such as :
- dyscaculia, dyslexia
- language problems
- high-functioning autism
- or as a result of family and social problems, require a personal approach and adapted education.
At the Anne Misonne school, each student benefits from a personalised programme, based on traditional education, adapted to his case, needs, possibilities and at his rhythm.
Courses are given in 4 small classes, the most “homogenous” possible for the level of age and the intellectual possibilities, of 4 to 6 children.
