(Singapore) Autism program to expand

May 25, 2017, The Straits Times (Singapore): 3 special ed schools to take in 75 more kids in total annually http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/education/3-special-ed-schools-to-take-in-75-more-kids-in-total-annually Three special education schools that offer programmes for children with moderate to severe autism spectrum disorder (ASD) will be expanding to take in 75 more students in total each year. The expansion, which will start from the second half of this year, aims to cater to the increased demand for such programmes in government-funded special education schools run by voluntary welfare organisations. This is driven by an increase in the reported number of students with the disorder, said the Ministry of Education.
