The Philippines is showing growth in areas of Special Education, in fact, according to DECS Order No. 26, s. 1997 entitled “Institutionalization of SPED Programs in All Schools”;
There should be at least one SPED Center organized in every school division. The establishment of this Center aims to provide access to basic education among children with special needs, namely: the gifted/talented, the mentally retarded, the visually impaired, the hearing impaired, the orthopedically handicapped, the learning disabled, the speech defectives, the children with behavior problems, the autistic children and those with health problems through the formal system and other alternative delivery services in education.
