International Youth Day 2019

12 August 2019

Today is all about youth. The theme covered this year is education. After all, everyone deserves equal opportunities and right to education. Having said that, it is the ideal time to take a look at special education!

What does special education actually mean?
Special education ensures that everyone has a chance at education. Special education is for children and young people who need temporary or permanent special help.

Do you just have access to special education?
To enter special education, you need a report for access to special education. This report is drawn up by the CLB. You can choose to go to the CLB yourself or the current school can request it.

how does special education work?

  • pre-school education: children aged 2.5 to 6 years
  • primary education: children aged 6 to 13
  • secondary education: from 13 to 21 years of age

Secondary education works with 4 forms of training:

  • social adjustment
  • social adjustment and work ability
  • vocational education
  • general, vocational, arts and technical education

>> I want to know more about the forms of training
