How has their support for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) in mainstream schools changed over the years? Click here to hear from Ms Amanda Tan, a newly trained AED(LBS) from Dunman Secondary School and her mentor, Mr Muhammad Suhairi, a Lead AED(LBS) from MOE HQ, and see how mentorship opportunities promote the sharing of expertise and strengthen the AED(LBS) fraternity.

A quality education in the Special Education Schools
Starting school is often as much a journey for the parent as it is for the child. Ms Mechil Lumogdang remembers when her son, Mohamed Areez Furqan, first enrolled in a Special Education (SPED) school. He has autism and mild intellectual disability. But Ms Mechil’s initial anxiety turned into reassurance and then to pride, as she saw Areez in good hands at APSN Katong School, growing and progressing with a circle of support. View Areez’s journey here, and follow MOE’s YouTube channel or Facebook page to watch the remaining videos in the series.
