Meet David van Noordwyk
Hi. My name is David and I am 6 years old. Before I joined the SNAP Programme in 2011, I had no language and my anxiety lead to tantrums and behavioural issues. I said my first words 2 years ago and I love numbers. I am good at planning and solving problems. In 2013 I joined the Grade 00 class.
My teacher said I am capable of doing a lot. So far my journey has been a good one and it needs to continue for the next 2 years.
Meet Raymond Kidson
Hi. I am Raymond Kidson and I am 7 years old. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome three years ago. I have good potential and I am capable of learning. Unfortunately, my anxiety sometimes leads to aggression, and this stands in the way of me attending a mainstream school.
I joined SNAP Academy this year and I have settled in beautifully. I enjoy being around classmates and I am also doing well academically.
Meet Tay Yibah Mohamed
Hi. My name is Tay Yibah Mohamed and I am 10 years old. When I first joined SNAP in 2009, I knew very few words and struggled with my behaviour. I have Autism and Cerebral Palsy in my hands. Since I joined at SNAP I have done really well. I really love people and try very hard to have conversations with them.
I am on a waiting list for a state special needs school, and my parents work very hard to support me financially. While I am waiting to be accepted to one of these schools I know I will always have a place at SNAP Academy.
Meet Wian Engelbrecht
Hi. My name is Wian Engelbrecht and I am 5 years old. I am a very clever boy. When I joined SNAP I received 1-2 hour sessions once a week, but my parents wanted me to do more sessions a week. With more sessions I am making very good progress and I can even say complete words now.
If I get more and longer sessions I could really progress in leaps and bounds, because early intervention is very critically for me.
