Published Date:

November 2020



In this webinar session organised by SEED Autism Services, Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS, advisor of NECIC, answers the following questions: 

  1. What is inclusive education and what are some common myths and beliefs about inclusive education? 
  2. Is there a difference between inclusive education and mainstream education or are they the same? 
  3. Is mainstream education the end goal for all learners with disabilities? 
  4. How do we determine if a learner with disabilities is benefitting from a learning setting (mainstream / total  special education / inclusive)? 
  5. What is the benefit of inclusive education to families with disabilities to the greater community? 
  6. How do we solve this chicken and egg situation whereby children who are almost ready but the education system is not yet inclusive-ready due to the on-going refining of the implementation process? 
  7. Can you give some advice to parents out there who have children with disabilities, but they do not have the confidence to put their children through the MOE’s education system? What are some things that the families with special education can do now while waiting for the system to be ready for them?
