REYO PADDOCK SCHOOL, Ghana - is a New Autism and Special Needs School with an integrated Therapy Centre for Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Behaviour and Other therapies.

May 2014

REYO Paddock School in Accra, Ghana was officially opened as an Autism and  Special Needs School in May 2014 by Mrs Peggy Walpole of Paddock School in the UK. The school provides a high standard UK special education with supporting therapies. The school  operates under  the REYO Foundation.

REYO Paddock School was set up by the Rex Yankey-Otoo (REYO) Foundation in partnership with Paddock School in London UK. The founders of the school are parents of an autistic child who attended Paddock School, an OFSTED outstanding special school in the UK.

The aim of the school is to provide up to date teaching facilities using the TEACCH and other systems tried and tested in the UK and US.

We are a specialist school that provides one of the best tailor made education and support, for children in Mainstream or other schools with different forms of Special Needs such as Autism, ADHD, Downs Syndrome, Dyslexia and many more with mild to severe learning difficulties. Up to date special needs curriculum, support,  specialist teaching skills, therapies and advice will be sought from Paddock School in London. Our staff are regularly trained by UK specialists and are also required to be loving and understanding to help our students and pupils learn within the framework of their ability. We use a holistic approach that is pupil lead and highly personalised to the needs of each individual pupil. A initial Assessment is done for each pupil and an Individual Education Plan (IEP) is prepared incorporating all therapies needed. This is assessed on a weekly, monthly and termly basis.

We provide Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Applied Behavior analysis (ABA)  for behavior therapy, physiotherapy, music and play therapies and much more.  Therapies are incorporated in activities and learning throughout each school day to achieve maximum results.

 Our Motto is: “WHERE THERE IS THE WILL, TOGETHER WE WILL NUTURE AND FIND THE WAY TO DEVELOP INDIVIDUAL TALENTS TO REACH THEIR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL. We believe in the principle that every individual deserves the right and chance to contribute their bit to the world and society. For as little as it may seem to be, it should be appreciated; knowing that such an achievement required so much  effort and determination to reach.

The school’s site also has a Therapy Centre, training and resource centres for parents, families and the public to learn more about managing and improving the lives of their special needs children at home. The Foundation also provides outreach services to towns and villages outside Accra.

Rex Yankey Otoo Foundation is legally registered as a charitable and non profit making institution.
