Learner Support

It is becoming increasingly common to have students with a range of learning difficulties and special needs in all schools, including international schools. The level of support required providing a student with learning difficulties access to the curriculum depends on the severity of the challenge. In many instances, students with challenges can be integrated into the regular classroom with minor accommodations and modifications. This process is referred to as inclusion.

Vilnius International School supports a policy of inclusion and accepts students with mild learning needs under the condition that he or she is able to meet the academic requirements of the education programme with the supports outlined in this policy. At present, VIS does not have a learning support department and cannot provide services for students that require more specialized interventions and accommodations.

Vilnius International School, though philosophically devoted to providing an inclusive environment that supports learners with cognitive, social, emotional, physical and other special needs, is restricted from doing so by financial and human resource limitations, i.e. local access to specialists.  Our commitment to providing services to a greater range of learners will be revisited during the review of the VIS strategic plan in 2014.
