The Nanaimo Unique Kids Organization (NUKO) operates two learning centres. The centre is, located in Nanaimo, has been in operation since 2005. The centres offer programs that support children and youth with neuro-developmental disorders. NUKO's mandate is to provide educational services and social support to students whose disabilities act as barriers to success within the conventional school system. NUKO’s high staff to student ratio allows us to implement programs and activities specifically tailored to meet the individual needs of every child. This facilitates the development of essential knowledge and skills that our students require to thrive and become active and productive members of their community.
About NUKO'S Learning Centre
NUKO students are challenged by a variety of neuro-developmental disorders (including Autism Spectrum Disorder and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) that result in a range of socially difficult behaviours (like Acute Anxiety, OCD, and ADHD) that impede their success in conventional learning environments. NUKO Programs provide opportunities for children and youth to develop these skills, and provides the support they need to have successful and positive experiences.
