About Center

The Special Education Center was established in 1981 to serve children with special needs, parents, teachers and educational administrators in local areas of Taoyuan, Hsinchu, and Miaoli. The services consist of providing in-service training for the teachers, assisting schools in student assessments and placement, developing teaching materials, and establishing a special-education hot-line to the general public. In addition to conducting research and experiments on special education issues, the Center also holds regular seminars and workshops and publishes academic journals and books to disseminate knowledge in the area of special education. The Center plays an important role in integrating departments of children education, educational psychology, and community centers to create a shared resource for better services to teachers, students, parents as well as to promote the knowledge of special education at the same time.
