SPECIAL EDUCATION

Special Education

An Educational Program/Service designed to meet the needs of children with special needs who cannot profit from general or Regular Education because of disabilities or Exceptional Disabilities.

Basic Philosophy of Special Education

Is derived from the premise that in a democracy, every individual is valuable in his own right and should be afforded equal opportunities to develop his full potential. Equal Educational opportunities do not mean the same educational experiences but rather “Different” experiences based on the child`s unique needs. The right to education cannot be denied a person if only because of his disabilities.

Goals and Objectives

  • The ultimate goal of special education shall be the integration or mainstreaming of learners with special needs into the regular school system and eventually in the community.
  • Special education shall aim to develop the maximum potential of the child with special needs to enable him to become self-reliant and shall be geared towards providing him with the opportunities for a full and happy life.
  • The specific objectives of special education shall be the development and maximization of learning competencies, as well as the inculcation of values to make the learners with special needs a useful and effective member of society.
