The decision as to whether a referral to Livingstone Primary School is a suitable candidate for a placement is determined at the case conference attended by Livingstone’s multi-disciplinary admissions team and representatives from the referring school.

The following areas are considered:
1. INTELLECTUAL ASSESSMENT
The learner, having been assessed by a registered clinical, counselling or
educational psychologist on the recognized intellectual assessment should be in the average or above IQ. range. A significant discrepancy between Verbal and Non-Verbal and/ or interest scatter could be indicative of a specific learning disorder.

2. SCHOLASTIC FUNCTIONING / PERFORMANCE
Level of scholastic performance. The extent of the lags in the learning areas should be considered in terms of scholastic history and potential.

3.COMPOUNDING VARIABLES
a) Perceptual Areas
i) Gross and fine motor co-ordination difficulties: observed
in posture and handwriting.

ii) Visual perceptual difficulties: assessed on standardized
tests.
iii) Auditory perceptual difficulties: assessed on
standardized tests.

b) Language
Language based difficulties as identified by standardized tests, and the
informal assessment of spoken and written languages may be necessary to
determine the learner’s performance in relation to his expected levels of
performance.

c) Attention Deficit Disorder

d) Memory Difficulties

  • parental support and co-operation
  • parental supervision with regards to child’s homework and school programme
