SNAP Education

SNAP Education is a non-profit organisation registered under Section 18A of the Income Tax Act, featuring a program for children living with autism.

Its Head Quarters are based in Durbanville, Cape Town, South Africa but reaches children across our country and the rest of the world. It has been operational since 1998.

SNAP Academy

SNAP Academy offers schooling from Grade 0 – Grade 7. We also have an Independent Education Plan (IEP) class for children who are not able to follow the CAPS curriculum.

We offer our children a main stream CAPS curriculum but adapt it to the child’s specific needs. For example children who cannot write, can type words on a computer or if they cannot speak, they can pack out their words.

Each class has a teacher with a class assistant and certain children have facilitators. We have a busy annual calendar with lots of events where both parents and children are involved.

SNAP Support

The SNAP Support board consists of volunteers that are passionate and dedicated to the special needs of children with autism and other developmental delays.

They convene monthly to plan and execute fundraising events to assist both SNAP Education and SNAP Academy with funds to help children who require either one-on-one intervention or foundation phase schooling.  If you are passionate about children and would like to get involved please email fundraiser@snap.org.za
