Volunteer Program in Thailand for Teaching

Special Education In-Class Program

If you are planning to enter the world of special education, then enrol with us at ACT for our 5 days’ Special Education in-class program. It aims at acquainting you with the various challenges of the children suffering from disabilities like ADHD, Down’s syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and Asperger’s Syndrome and learn about the various tools, strategies and techniques to be used when handling learners with special needs.

Education of all Handicapped Children Act of 1975, the first legislation to protect the educational rights of students with disabilities, has made it possible for all children to receive education without any form of discrimination. Later the Act was modified into Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA in 1990 where it states that all special needs students must be given free access to education in the least restrictive environment. No educational institute can deny admission of a child with Special Education Needs. In such scenarios, the need for well trained teachers have increased manifold.
