Nokuthula Centre and Special School is a school for learners with special educational needs who have severe intellectual disabilities.
The school caters for learners ranging from ages 3 to 18 years and represent the total spectrum of the South African community. The language of learning and teaching at Nokuthula is English, as well,as various African Languages and the school offers alternative methods of communication for the non verbal learners.
Nokuthula Centre was established in 1984, by doctors and nurses of Alexandra Clinic, parents and members of the community who saw a need for a Centre for the severely intellectually challenged children. The children were identified when they came for physiotherapy, medical attention and stimulation at Alexandra clinic.
There were no centres for children with disabilities. The Centre was forced by circumstances to move to Marlboro where it is housed in a warehouse. Our Centre is a non-profit organisation which caters for learners with severe intellectual and physical disabilities.
