Welcome to
Livingstone Primary School

Livingstone Primary School (LSEN), situated in Morningside, is a Short Term Remedial school for children who experience intrinsic barriers to learning. They have average to above average measured levels of general ability but experience specific learning disabilities, in the areas of reading, spelling, written language, learning mathematics or have non-verbal learning disabilities. In addition, these children may experience other barriers to learning such as, Anxiety Disorders, Dyscalculia, Aspergers Syndrome, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Depression to name but a few.

The team at Livingstone Primary includes a professional staff of remedial teachers, Speech and Language Therapists, Audiologists, Occupational Therapists, a Counselor and a Social Worker. Our children are sent to us from mainstream schools because they struggle to read and write at an appropriate age and grade level. We work intensively on their difficulties, as well as on the curriculum, and after two to three years they return to mainstream schools throughout Durban.
