The number of students reported with special education needs rose by about 5% in the past three years. Education Minister Chan Chun Sing said this is largely due to growing awareness and early detection. He added that the government is regularly reviewing the master plan to better support children with special needs and their caregivers. The issue was highlighted after the alleged murder of a pair of 11-year-old twin brothers, who were revealed to have special needs.
