CLES team

With a strong belief that the road to peace goes through the education of children and the opportunity to give every child the right to achieve their full potential, the Dance by CLES (DBC) is designed in partnership with National Dance Institute in New York (NDI) as part of CLES mission to provide equal opportunities to all children and promote inclusion among them irrespective of their differences and capacity to learn.

“Dance by CLES” started its pilot program in August 2017 to bring dance and the arts to private and public schools.

More than 750 child were trained in 6 private and public schools.

'Shu Beni Mama' Play

“Shu Bene Mama?“ a play aimed at raising awareness, including scenes about four specific learning difficulties:

Dyslexia, Dysphasia, Dyspraxia and ADHD.

The play is shown in Lebanese schools. Since 2012, it has been played in 120 public and private schools, 5 public libraries, and on the theater of the Ministry of Education.

Trainings

Starting in 2002, CLES has been organizing free annual training sessions for hundreds of teachers from public and private schools. These training sessions cover different themes related to specific learning difficulties and are given by a Belgian-Lebanese multidisciplinary team specialized in the study of specific learning disabilities. The main goal of the training sessions is to enable teachers to detect specific learning disabilities among students and direct them to institutions that can provide adequate assistance.
