Episode 14: Meeting Learning Needs at JIS With Deputy Head of School Maya Nelson
Every child develops at a different pace and each student’s developmental journey is unique. But what happens when a child needs additional help in areas such as reading, speech, language, or motor skills? At JIS, this is where the Support Services Team (SST) steps in and provides their specialized, targeted support.
In this absorbing episode of the JIS Podcast, host Joanna Sommers (JIS Middle and High School Curriculum Coordinator) is joined by a very special guest who can boast about having been a JIS student, parent, teacher, and principal. She now has a key leadership position that oversees all our campuses and divisions: it’s Deputy Head of School Maya Nelson!
Follow their in-depth discussion about special education at JIS, neurodiversities in children, the role of the SST, and how our team of specialists, therapists, and psychologists identify and help students who may struggle with developmental delays.
