What is Special Education in Singapore?

date:Aug 10,2012 source: editorial staff:linan clicks:

The education of children with disabilities of school-going age is provided in special education (SPED) schools. As at January 2010, there are 20 SPED schools run by Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) receiving funding from the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). The SPED schools run different programmes catering to distinct disability groups of children who are unable to benefit from mainstream schooling.
SPED schools provide customised educational programmes aimed at developing the potential of pupils and helping them to be independent, self-supporting and contributing members of society. Individualised Educational Plans (IEPs) are drawn up for all pupils. Besides receiving classroom instructions conducted by their teachers, pupils also receive support from paramedical professionals such as psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and social workers.
The mission of SPED schools is to provide the best possible education and training to children with special needs so as to enable them to function optimally and integrate well into society.
