It is common for all children and youth to experience learning difficulties at some point. For most, the difficulties are temporary and are soon overcome with some help and encouragement from parents and teachers.
However, for some children, due to existing learning difficulties or disabilities, it is much harder for them to learn as compared to most children their age. Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) are likely to need extra or different help than other children their age. Fortunately, with the right help and attention, children with SEN can not only do well but flourish in school and beyond.
Join us in this Nectar Circle as Jiayong shares about the different aspects of understanding children with special needs, some common misconceptions and advise on how to help your child if he/she has SEN.
