Parents, please be aware of quacks and cons in the field of special education. Someone who has a degree in banking and a Masters in Special Education is NOT a specialist of any kind. Would you go to someone for medical intervention if they told you that they have a degree in LAW and a MASTERS in Surgery??Again... it's the came rationale.
The field of special education in Malaysia is at an all time low because there is little legislation to protect and preserve the integrity of the profession.
And, please know.. that in special education, very very seldom is there a "cure" because having special educational needs is not a disease. It's about the way the person is made up and how best to cater to the deficits and multiple facets that shape individual differences in special education.
Dyslexia does not go away, neither Autism or Down's Syndrome. ADHD and ADD can be controlled by medical intervention but to assume it can "disappear" is unreal. You can loose weight, or stop a headache but u can't make a learning difficulties go away for good.
Intervention changes over time as well. Obviously one cannot teach a 6 year old how to make notes if they are dyslexic Making notes is a skill that is introduced and taught at a later stage in academic life say around 13 - 15years old. You cannot assume that just because you have provided one year of intervention that that learner will no longer face any difficulties even at a later stage.
Something for Malaysian parents to ponder and reflect on. Be realistic.
