Customized Educational Services Give Your Child the Advantage

The educational system has become very competitive, especially in the wake of government reform that seeks to give every family a broader range of educational choices for their children. While this is certainly beneficial to children of all ages, it also means they have to be competitive, as well. From excelling in their high school courses to getting into a preferred college, this can put a great deal of pressure on each child and their families. Fortunately, there is help.

An educational service can provide counseling in much the same way that a career counselor can help those already in the workforce. Parents and the child can consult a education consultant and learn about their choices for college. This can be especially helpful, because a professional consultant will know which schools offer the best programs in relation to the student’s interests. They can provide a list of schools that feature the areas of study that appeal to the student, while working within the family’s budget.

Education service companies also offer opportunities for emigrated children, who may be having trouble adapting to American customs and cultures. For instance, an English language summer camp can help children get a better grasp of the English language, which will help them in their studies and in developing better social skills. If your teen child is interested in studying abroad, many educational services also offer Chinese and other foreign language tutoring programs.

Whether your child needs tutoring, college counseling, or assistance filling out college applications, an educational service can provide the guidance your family needs. Additionally, many services also offer help in filling out college enrollment applications and applications for loans or grants. You may even be able to arrange housing for the student in advance, which will reduce the stress of getting the student … Read More

Resources for Regular Classroom Teachers Handling Special Needs Children: Had We Have an Idea

Initiatives for special education in the Philippines have begun as early as 1902. It has almost been a century and two decades past; yet until now, our country has no version of the famous IDEA or Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. However, there is a Senate Bill pushing for this need, Senate Bill 1298 espoused by Senator Joel Villanueva. In the absence of IDEA our special education system has no specific parameters for its practice. Sadly, there are no legislations mandating the other elemental resources that will be of great help to the teachers.

 

Despite a fundamental block missing, our Department of Education has recently made clear its desires for inclusive education. Inclusive education refers to having a special needs child fully participate in a regular school. We also have a Senate Bill waiting to be a law on inclusive education, Senate Bill 996 espoused by Senator Win Gathchalian.

Most school teachers from both the private and publics schools have expressed apprehension on their readiness to deal with the inclusion program. They are expressing the lack of proficient training for the task. Regular classroom teachers are already anticipating the pressure and difficulty of handling their classrooms. They are overwhelmed as early as now.

Had we have an IDEA, our special education needs children will have a vast pool of professionals and proper assessment available to them. Diagnosis alone will not truly be enough. It is best to have an assessment for the appropriate developmental concern of each child. Likewise, for their educational need, assessment from a professional who is also familiar with instruction and curriculum will be a lot of help. With this detailed educational assessment, our regular classroom teachers handling special needs children will have better information and picture of the child’s present level of performance.
