Question

Dear Sir, My daughter is 5yrs old and is diagnosed with ASD (Austism Spectrum Disorder) since she was 3yrs old. Currently she is undergoing the following therapies – ABA therapy – 15hrs per week – Speech Therapy – 1 hr per week – Occupational Therapy – 1 hr per week – Playgroup sessions – 2 hrs per week We are in the midst of planning her education roadmap, and would like to find out if there’s any school in Kuala Lumpur or PJ that caters to special needs student (for both private and public). Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Hello, Zaid Though some schools do offer facilities such as inclusive classrooms and support staff, they can only cater to a handful of children. The best thing to do would be to go for an assessment at the school you are interested in. Some schools might help students with mild difficulties but if your child needs continuous support, you may consider specialised centres like the one run by the early autism project http://www.autismmalaysia.com/ Another option is to go to the international and private education fair next week (5th and 6th Nov) where you can speak to dozens of schools directly. I know this isn’t much, but I hope its helpful
