STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES AT SBS
Satit Bilingual School of Rangsit University (SBS) is a diverse community which values and promotes inclusion. Inclusion is when everyone feels welcomed, valued, included, challenged and supported to be successful. We believe that individuals have different strengths and learn and develop at different rates and in different ways. At SBS we are committed to seeing that the unique needs of all students are being met by providing the appropriate support. However, not all support can nor should be provided by the classroom teachers or in the regular classroom setting.
To promote inclusive education, SBS has invested in its Student Support Services department staffed with a qualified and experienced team of professionals who are committed to supporting both learning and language support needs of all our students.
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SEN) PROGRAMME
Special Educational Needs (SEN) Programme is provided for students with mild to moderate ADD/ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) such as dyslexia, etc., who have been identified as in need of extra learning support to be able to access the full curriculum and/or to develop specific skills such as academic skills, life skills, social skills, memory and concentration, and behaviour modification. Our multi-disciplinary team works with students in one-to-one, small group and whole class settings to achieve their Individual Education Plan (IEP) targets and curriculum access.

LANGUAGE SUPPORT PROGRAMMES
At SBS we believe it is important to ensure access to the full curriculum for all of our learners. As a result, we are expanding our language support programmes for all of our learners that may need additional support in both English and Thai. These are our English as an Additional Language (EAL) and Thai as an Additional Language (TAL) programmes. Our aim is to provide support to learners to ensure that all students are integrated into the mainstream classes as quickly as possible.
The EAL/TAL Teacher supports children’s access to the curriculum while helping them improve their language skills. Children performing two or more years below on our reading assessment may be asked to join the program to receive more individualised support.
The EAL/TAL students are given an opportunity to improve their understanding of English or Thai and to interact with others in small group situations. The children are grouped according to skill levels. The support given improves students’ listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. The aim is to ensure that the students become proficient in both languages. We are able to provide support in all areas to ensure access to the curriculum for all of our students depending on their individual needs.
