General information

Nanaimo Unique Kids Organization (NUKO) is a learning centre that supports local 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 student to staff 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. 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 environments. In order to overcome these barriers, the students must continually work on developing the skills needed to function effectively within a social community. NUKO creates a safe and supportive space which facilitates daily peer interaction and helps build positive and enduring social connections.
