The Government and NGO's Role in Special Ed in Asia

According to the Special Schooling Network in Asia or SENIA, "nearly every day in every classroom, international school professionals in Asia have the task of providing kids with special schooling needs access to rigorous curricula. Students with special schooling needs, whether they have been formally diagnosed or stay misunderstood, require advocacy in order to generate academically, behaviorally, emotionally, and/or socially in international school settings. Advocacy for these students involves facilitating awareness, acceptance, & effective interventions by generating connections with families, teachers, guidance counselors, general schooling students, administrators, related-service providers, community groups, & the scholars with special schooling needs" (SENIA, 2010).

The world today is now eyeing on Asia as the new economic powerhouse given the presence of China & India. The continent is perhaps of the most culturally diverse areas in the world where majority of the population lives. As such, a given population would not be normal without the presence of specially gifted kids that can help drive Asia's success to the world. But how are special ed schools fairing in this promising area that consists of a diversified culture, customs, traditions, & beliefs?

It would even be considerable to note that the standards of learning for special ed schools in Asia are being thought about to meet international standards so that people with special needs would stay at par with those coming from developed nations. In as much as these standards are set, it is the responsibility of educators to promote this using their established laws & policies that are now focused in providing the necessary services & schooling for kids with special needs in the region. Given their abilities, these students must be given considerable importance because they require the assistance in order to learn effectively. As such, groups like SENIA are emphasizing on the necessity for Asian communities to become aware of this issue, learn to accept the realities of these needs, & intervene in terms of the formulation of effective curriculum that would serve these students properly.

With this in mind, it is worth to note that students with special needs are given focused given the number of special ed facilities in Asia with both the government & non-governmental associations such as the SENIA discussing issues on how to provide schooling to these individuals. Important groups in Asia are all working together to emphasize that these individuals are not a burden to the society but are also part of the citizenry who are thought about futures of each Asian nation.

Given the notion that the youth are the future of the society, students with special needs ought to not be disregarded in a given society. Most when such society holds the most number of populations in the world such as in Asia. Both the government & non-governmental organizations such as SENIA are considerable development for special students & this is a clear indication that special ed schools are being given relevant significance in as far as how the kids that they are teaching can contribute towards the development of each Asian nation. Such is the responsibility of everyone & times all kids are developed, then progress in Asia can be achieved.
