Special education for children with special needs has been debated widely. In line with that, effort has been invested to help these children to achieve level of functioning similar to those of the normal children. The Faculty of Education, University of Malaya together with the Persatuan Pendidikan Khas Kebangsaan or National Association of Special Education, Malaysia, intend to contribute their best in fulfilling the needs for children with special needs, their parents, the special educators and the community at large.
As such, we seek partnerships and collaborations that can help us to leverage the constraints and challenges that lie ahead the community of individuals with special needs in Malaysia. In other words, we need caring individuals in synergising expertise, knowledge, resources and idea for the betterment of these kids. As education is a powerful tool to transform the future of these kids, the proposed international workshop will integrate knowledge, experiences, technology and innovations from diverse organisations and research groups, and consequently put forth practical hands-on methodologies and approaches in dealing with various special needs children and parents.
