Appropriate attention will be given to disabled students, special education teachers, says Fadhlina

PUTRAJAYA: Students from the Persons with Disabilities (PwD) community and special education teachers will be given appropriate attention by the Education Ministry, says Fadhlina Sidek.

The Education Minister conveyed this to Senator Datuk Ras Adiba Radzi when the OKU Sentral president paid a courtesy call on her at the ministry here Wednesday (Jan 18).

Ras Adiba said among the matters discussed at the meeting were the construction of a PwD Sports School, upgrading of facilities at special education schools, and increasing the number of occupational therapists and speech therapists at the ministry.

"Alhamdulillah, the minister (Fadhlina) was kind enough to meet me and listen to several suggestions on the PwD community. She welcomed my visit and will always follow developments on PwD,” she told Bernama after the visit.

Ras Adiba said she believed that Fadhlina was capable of implementing various approaches and initiatives on PwD education in the country.

"I could see that she has done a lot to strengthen students including the PwD group and teaching manpower at special education schools,” she added.

Fadhlina has visited PwD educational institutions like the Cerebral Palsy Special Education School in Johor since being appointed the Education Minister in December last year. - Bernama
