Compass International School (CIS), a member of the Nord Anglia Education (NAE) family of schools, marked the World Autism Awareness Day by reiterating its commitment to neurodiversity, a statement said.
“The narrative surrounding autism is no longer confined to attempts at curing or converting; instead, a new focus emerges—one that champions acceptance, support and inclusion for autistic individuals in the education sector.
“Nord Anglia Education’s commitment to facilitate an inclusive environment across the globe, was cemented in the most recent Learning and Teaching conference held in Hanoi, when professionals from Nord Anglia schools across the globe gathered with a shared goal: enhancing the support system for students with learning differences, including those with autism.
“Our school community plays an active role in shaping a world where neurodiversity is not only acknowledged but celebrated. This journey of transformation holds profound significance for our institution, as Nord Anglia actively moves towards inclusivity, echoing the evolving narrative that transcends boundaries, uplifts communities, and empowers every individual, regardless of neurodivergence.”
CIS executive principal Liz Lamb said: “We consider ourselves advocates of an evolving narrative that transcends boundaries in the autism community and through this transformation we aim to contribute to uplifting communities, and empower each student, irrespective of neurodivergence.
“In embracing this ethos, our school nurtures an environment where the unique strengths and perspectives of each student are recognised thereby aligning with our personalised teaching efforts in the classroom.
“As we commemorate World Autism Awareness Day, our commitment to fostering a culture of understanding and acceptance stands as a testament to our dedication to building a more inclusive and compassionate world.”
