Malaika House

Introducing Malaika House: Empowering Children with Autism

Malaika House was created with a unique vision in mind - to provide a nurturing environment for children with autism, specifically those with Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) / Extreme Demand Avoidance (EDA). The founders of Malaika House believed in the importance of developing a non-school education and development facility where these children can truly flourish.

A Place for Every Child

At Malaika House, the core belief is that every child is unique, and it is essential for parents and children to find a facility that suits their individual needs. Many children with autism often feel lost and unloved, struggling to find a sense of belonging in traditional educational settings where their needs may not be fully understood or catered to.

Expanding Horizons

Initially focusing on older individuals, Malaika House is now expanding its reach to accommodate children aged 10 to 18, spanning grades 4 to 12. With a long-term vision to also support students with intellectual disabilities and those requiring extensive one-on-one assistance, the team at Malaika House is committed to a gradual growth strategy.

Creating a Unique "House"

The ultimate goal of Malaika House is to create a family-like environment where every child feels a sense of belonging and happiness. By fostering a close partnership with parents, the team aims to tailor their approach to meet the specific needs of each student, ensuring that every child thrives in this supportive community.

In conclusion, Malaika House stands as a beacon of hope for children with autism, offering a tailored educational experience that prioritizes individuality, support, and belonging. With its expansion and vision for the future, this unique facility is poised to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children who deserve a place where they can truly shine.

South African CAPS Curriculum

The South African online school curriculum, known as the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS), is an integral component of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R – 12 in South Africa. This curriculum, available through Think Digital Academy, serves as a comprehensive policy framework for education in South African schools. It has gained significant popularity among South African families, both locally and internationally. Students following the CAPS curriculum can choose to study in either Afrikaans or English and will be required to take exams and complete formal assessments regularly.
