Special education website launched

The Education Bureau launched a one-stop website SENSE today to facilitate easy access by the public to the latest information and online resources on integrated education and special education for supporting students with special educational needs (SEN).   The bureau hopes schools, parents and the public can enthusiastically use the website to help students with SEN enhance their learning and realise their potential at different developmental stages so that they can gradually become independent people with adaptability and self-learning abilities to embrace the challenges in life.   The website has five dedicated pages, namely Integrated Education, Special Education, Professional Support, Professional Development of Teachers and Types of Special Educational Needs.   The bureau has developed evidence-based support strategies, programmes and services to help schools enhance the learning and social adaptability of students with SEN through providing targeted support.   There are nine types of SEN, including intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, mental illness, specific learning difficulties, physical disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment and speech and language impairment.   The Types of Special Educational Needs page provides schools and parents with resources and support measures for each of these SEN type for reference and application.
