Mrs. Dalin Ruangaisoon who was born here on the island of Koh Samui has a family of three children, two of whom were diagnosed with slow learning disorder and Autism.
Difficulties arose when trying to enter the children into the conventional education system and her applications were so often refused.
However she nevertheless tried her best to ensure they received the care and support necessary for their development and to prevent further regression.
Her initial approach took her to Saranrom Hospital (Suratthani) and later as far afield as Bangkok, not itself an easy task with disabled children but with no major success.
As a direct result Dalin was supported to start up her own special needs class within The Samui Learning Center in Lamai.
This entity served the community until the class grew to a point where there was the need to move to their own premises.
Thanks to “The Rainbow Room” community in Bangkok a fund raising event was held resulting in (B160.000) being donated along with support from local sources, enabling Dalin and the children to move into their own building.
In June 2012 The school was official certificated as a branch of “The Thai Autistic Foundation”, Suratthani branch, giving the school charitable status.
The school is currently located at the Maya Buri Resort off the “Ghost Road” in Bangrak.
