The Innovative Learning Center (ILC) is the only multi-disciplinary, international daily program in China for children and adults with special needs. We provide services from birth through adulthood for clients who cannot get their needs met through international or local schools or other service providers.

Who We Serve

Typically our clients are on the autism spectrum, have global development delays, behavior problems, learning disabilities, genetic conditions or need to intensely develop skills before moving to an international school.

ILC’s Mission

To help individuals to achieve their full potential by enabling them to develop essential tools for social, emotional and academic success.

Although I’ve found support for special education in Shanghai is overall a lot worse than back in America, ELG has been the equal of anything back home, if not better.
