CARE is officially registered with The Department of Education. We have registered in the category of Independent Special Schools. This means that we are operating under the auspices of the Department of Education. In order to qualify for this registration, CARE had to meet certain criteria in terms of curriculum. We follow an adapted version of the National Curriculum and incorporate elements of the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) in order to ensure that our education policies are aligned to national policies. This also means that it makes for a more streamlined process when learners leave CARE and integrate into more formal schooling systems. CARE is a fully certified Independent School with the Department of Education. Registration number: 700400847.

At CARE, we understand that raising a child with autism is no easy task. By providing you and your child with the facilities, therapies, information and guidance under one roof, our team of passionate ASD specialists are able to implement intervention and offer a strong support system that both learner and parent can depend on, inside and outside the classroom environment.

"At CARE, they are passionate about teaching our extraordinary kids to do ordinary things." - Rakhee

When Occupational Therapist Rozanna Riback founded CARE in June 2011, she had envisioned establishing her dream of creating a holistic intervention centre, dedicated to the therapeutic and developmental needs of children with autism. CARE is not just a school or a treatment facility – it's a safe haven for kids with autism to feel comfortable, cared for, accepted and empowered. At CARE, we emphasize the ethos of being 'different, not less'.

Our team specialises in trans-disciplinary assessments and diagnostic evaluations, including the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-2 (ADOS-2). We assess learners' academic, developmental, behavioural and socio-emotional functioning in order to formulate an integrated program that addresses each learner's individual needs. By providing an accurate evaluation and diagnosis of learners' difficulties, we are able to deliver superior educational and therapeutic intervention. At CARE, every child is regarded as unique; special attention is paid to particular, individual variations of how they present on the Spectrum. With us, the happiness and wellbeing of each learner is of utmost importance.

"The kindness and professionalism of staff at C.A.R.E are amazing and my daughter has blossomed so much in the 3 years she has been there. She receives top quality therapy and amazing one-on-one attention." – Cathy
