Recently, the Ministry of Education announced that compulsory education will be extended to children with special needs from 2019. This is one of many initiatives by various organizations to ensure academic inclusion and equal opportunities for these students.

In this issue of SingTeach, Assoc Prof Levan Lim from the Early Childhood and Special Needs Education Academic Group at the National Institute of Education strongly echoes this sentiment. He shares with us the importance of creating sustainable inclusive communities for individuals with special needs in Inclusiveness within and the Inclusion of Persons with Special Needs.

Also for the first time, we feature a parent who shares her experience raising a child with special needs in Towards Greater Inclusivity: A Parent’s Perspective.
