|Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs||
PIS is particularly sensitive when providing an educational response that is fair and offers equal opportunities to students with special educational needs (SEN), whether because they are gifted children, or suffer from ADD, ADHD or dyslexia.
|Learning support offered||
ESO students with concentration difficulties, ADHD, ADHD or dyslexia study some subjects such as Catalan, Spanish, mathematics, natural science and social science in reduced groups with a maximum of 12 students. Thanks to this division, students with these characteristics have specialised pedagogical teachers in order to address these learning difficulties and therefore have the best resources in order to aid in their comprehension, help them organise themselves, motivate them and examine them. In primary, this is addressed with occasional reinforcement sessions in the classroom whereas in batxillerat, this is performed through afternoon sessions given that in principle, during the Lower Secondary stage they are given strategies so as not to need the reduced group during batxillerat.
|The school supports gifted, able and talented students||
As an inclusive school, the Psychopedagogical Counselling Department organises a tailor-made programme for PIS' gifted students, in partnership with Centre Kepler, which specialises in this type of student. PIS' teachers have received specific training in order to properly manage students that have been identified as a gifted by a qualified professional. PIS also offers the students the possibility to participate in educational and recreational workshops -during and outside school hours- with classmates with shared interests and manners of behaving, whom they perceive as equals. These sessions are organised by the specialists at Centre Kepler in a way that is stimulating for the students, and during which they also work on emotions and social skills to help them in their personal and cognitive growth and social integration.
