Title: Hirap matuto anak ko, may tutor naman siya. Dapat bang mag SPED?
Post by: Macan LTC on May 04, 2021, 03:44:47 pm
Iba po ang system sa pagturo sa mga batang hirap matuto (learning challenges po ang tawag dito). Gayun din sa mga batang may developmental delay at behavioral issues. Ang Special Education (SpEd) ( ay isang paraan ng pagtuturo para ma-address ang learning and behavioral challenges ng bata.

Sa SpEd, may iba-ibang learning theories & strategies (, manipulative materials, interesting and attractive auditory and visual input. Kaya po  pag may teacher na nagturo na white board, papel at marker lang ang gamit. Hindi po yan SpEd. Makakatulong kung mapanuri ang magulang para hindi masayang ang mga araw na dadaan.

Some parents believe that ordinary tutorial and enrolling in a traditional school set-up will help the student given the present situation but are not aware  of the long term effect.  I have dealt with parents who are not yet open to a more flexible and diverse  learning approach. Some of the reasons  for refusal I have observed are the following
-the child being stereotyped as SpEd
-image/brand of the school
But there are some who are willing to take the unique way of educating their child for as long as it helps the latter in the long run.
