TACLOBAN CITY – The local government unit of Naval in Biliran will be hiring five teachers who will handle the special education class.
Mayor Gretchen Espina said that the LGU decided to hire five special needs education graduates to help the Naval SPED Central School to support and help students of the school who have special needs.
Students with special needs are those enrolled with visual impairment, hearing impairment, intellectual disability, learning disability, autism spectrum disorder, communication disorder, physical disability, emotional and behavioral disorder, multiple disabilities with visual impairment, and to those who are orthopedically handicapped, chronically ill, and gifted and talented.
Teaching students with special needs is not easy because their structure of education must be designed to overpower the disadvantages related to their disabilities, and they need to keep pace with the learning process of children who do not have special needs.
Some children with special needs need to have better attention by having a one-on-one teaching session.
The newly hired teachers will start helping the teaching staff of Naval SPED this October.
The school has 45 enrolled students with special needs.
