The primary goal of The Little Yellow School House is to provide challenged children with the skills that will enable them to achieve their greatest potential. We offer the children a safe place to learn, in an environment where they are always accepted and loved. We provide therapy to the families of the children so that they can better cope with their child's special needs.
The Little Yellow Schoolhouse also known in Mexico as Amor a la Ninez, AC is the only learning center on Isla Mujeres for special needs children.
Without LYSH they would have NO CHANCE in life. Many would never know blue from red, the letter A from B, or how to color, paste or cut. LYSH fills the educational and emotional void for these children and their families.
Over the last few years LYSH has grown from a one room school house, we now have four classrooms and two consulting rooms, a TV, a DVD player, a small sound system and a basic kitchen. We teach all the children cooking skills and kitchen safety, which gives the students confidence and independence. These skills can be applied for future work. We involve them in many activities as a group to improve/increase sociability (rules, patience, respect and attention).
We also have an outdoor playing area designed by a visiting Psychologist for development of the children’s gross motor skills, a multi use sports court and a beautiful mural on the side wall. The property is now fully fenced the school to keep the children safe.
Each child's therapy is individualized to cover psychological, speech, physical and gross motor skills. These customized therapies are based on several evaluations and meetings with each child's therapist and teachers to determine the child's needs.
We provide individual and group therapy to each child and their family. Dysfunctional families receive psychological help.
