Educating Learners with Diverse Abilities is a book that reflects the ethos of Singapore's current ability-driven approach to education. In this new educational paradigm, the focus is on nurturing and supporting the diverse abilities and needs of individual learners so that their potential to contribute to their own lives and society can be maximized.
Educating Learners with Diverse Abilities is the first textbook in Singapore that is aimed at providing teachers, both at the initial and in-service training levels, with an introduction to understanding students with diverse and special needs and how teachers can better work with these students by focusing on their abilities. The emphasis in this book is on providing learning opportunities and appropriate teaching instructions within mainstream class and school communities.
Written by a team of contributors with expertise and knowledge related to the Singapore context, Educating Learners with Diverse Abilities contains information and resources that are grounded in the international literature as well as specific to the Singaporean context. In addition to its specific use for teachers in education, this book is also relevant to professionals in other disciplines such as psychology, sociology and disability studies, as well as related fields to special education such as physical, speech and occupational therapy and disability services.
