Disabled children to get personalized education


Shanghai is to offer personalized education to children with disabilities and who receive medical care at all its 58 public special schools and teaching sites citywide over the next few years, the Shanghai Education Commission said Wednesday.


Currently, only special schools in 10 of 17 districts are included in a pilot programme.


Under this, teachers and doctors work together to design a unique curriculum for each child based on their needs. Tuition, meals and accommodation are all free.


Each school in the pilot is assigned a community doctor who pays regular visits and offers help to teachers.


The children also receive hospital check-ups, which are more comprehensive than those usually done in schools.
