About us

Who We Are

With the primary aim of promoting  educational, vocational, personal and social life of people with learning difficulties and developmental disabilities, Comrade David Ofoeyeno Special School (CODOSSC) was established on the 9th day of September 2012 at its permanent site situated at the heart of DSC (Delta Steel Company) township, Warri Delta State. The center and learning activities finally took off on the 6th day of October 2013.

We understand that there are various dynamics to be considered when dealing with or teaching children with learning and developmental disabilities; hence we decided that if a child cannot learn the way we teach, we have to teach the way the child can learn. This has given room to our one-on-one  teaching approach which targets us teaching every child according to the best way they can easily learn and understand.

No child chooses the way he or she was born and hence every child deserves the same level of education and peer relationship. The world takes care of the able, brilliant and smart kids and we take care of the challenged (physical and mental) kids and make them smartly brilliant.

Partner with us today by sponsoring a child with special disability; we are very much ready to help; we love your children and can’t wait to have them with us….

Our Learning Categories


Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.

Down syndrome

Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder caused by an error in cell division that results in an extra 21st chromosome. The condition leads to impairments in both cognitive ability and physical growth that range from mild to moderate developmental disabilities

Cerebral Palsy

The brain damage is caused by brain injury or abnormal development of the brain that occurs while a child's brain is still developing — before birth, during birth, or immediately after birth. Cerebral Palsy affects body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance.

intellectually impaired

Intellectual disability (ID), also known as general learning disability, and mental retardation (MR), is a generalized neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significantly impaired intellectual and adaptive functioning.
