Supporting Learners in International Schools | Global Take

In this week’s episode of Global Take, we discuss learning support in international schools. We will look at what makes learning support services unique and different in international schools and discuss the challenges learning support specialists face. We will provide examples of how students with learning needs are served in international schools and what can be done to ensure more students with learning needs get the education they need. Hosted by Ryan Sagare (SchoolRubric Co-Founder).
