School based therapies to be launched next year
Minister of Education, Dr. Aishath Ali, has announced school-based therapies for students with special needs will be launched next year.
While speaking on RaajjeTV's "Fashaairu" programme, the minister highlighted the most common complaint from parents is the lack of services that cater to special needs children.
She noted that many parents currently have to go through the arduous process of traveling to Male' and waiting in long queues as the child's condition worsens, in order to prove the child with therapy.
Therefore, the ministry is currently making efforts to establish school-based therapies to resolve the issue.
