Special Education in China: Challenges and Trends

Special Education in China Event Flyer

Throughout this session, you will learn about cultural views and beliefs about special education in China. We will take you for a walk in the lives of different families in Shanghai. The topic of early intervention and support services available in China will be discussed and you will learn how students get support to better themselves. In China and in other countries around the world, education is the most important factor in a child’s life. We will describe the education system and options available for students in China. For those with additional needs, the options are limited but developing slowly. Transitional education and future thinking for those with special needs are developing with strong advocacy.

Join the webinar to learn more about the challenges and trends in special education in China.


The event is open to the public. Registered guests will receive details for joining the Zoom meeting.
