Special Needs Education

There is very little available for special needs children in Kuching.  The Govrnment runs a special school at Jalan Ong Tiang Swee and they also have special classes in a number of mainstream schools.  If your child is a Malaysian citizen then they will have access to these facilities.  If your child is not Malaysian, you will need to look for alternatives.

A list of all registered NGO’s who deal with special needs can be found by following this link sarawak.salam.org  

Sue Walker, a long time Kuching resident from the UK, operates a great service for special needs children from her centre The Playroom at Jalan Dogan.  Sue is a trained Speech Therapist, Reading Therapist, and Kinesiologist.  Sue is also very well connected in the special needs education area and if she is not able to help you, chances are she will have some ideas of who possibly could.  Sue’s contact details are: Sue Walker, 016-8731376.

    • I think there is a small fee. It is a Government run centre so the fees are very minimal. I know that they are very approachable and helpful. Give them a call or pop in and speak to the Principal as I’m sure she will be able to give you all the information that you need.
