Education for Children

with Special Needs

Providing the joy of learning to all children, regardless of whether they have a disability or not!

Available in Japan

Despite having such disabilities as pervasive development disorder, mental retardation, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders, and cerebral palsy, there are things that all children, without exception, can accomplish. The Kumon Method helps children work on tasks that they can do and helps them build up their learning. By providing the “just-right” level of study, we develop students' ability to deal with words and numbers, and foster the development of their intellectual ability. This is a style of education that only the Kumon Method can offer, with its instructional method and worksheets that progress in small steps.

Every single child has limitless potential and the ability to grow, and children with special needs are no exception. Kumon has many examples that prove this.

Despite their disabilities, children begin the Kumon program from a level they can easily do, and then slowly raise the difficulty level of their learning to gradually increase the material they can handle. By making such a continuous effort, children are able to achieve tremendous growth. Tsukushinbo Nobita is an ongoing series of booklets that records the study progress and growth of these children in detail.
(19 volumes have been published up through 2015. Irregular publication schedule.)
