    “QSI Montenegro does not have on-site learning support educators. Our classroom teachers, with support and guidance from regional QSI Learning Support Coordinators, can accommodate students with mild learning needs. QSI employs regional Learning Support Coordinators who provide support, education/training, and direction for schools without Learning Support educators on staff. With this support, QSI Montenegro teachers are equipped to provide Tier 1 support to students. Podgorica does not have adequate English-speaking educational psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists or other support professionals for children with significant learning needs.” –QSI International School of Montenegro (QSIM) Representative.
