Programs for Children with Special Needs in Iran: The Importance of Early Intervention
Malekpour, Mokhtar
Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v8 n1 p83-87 Spr 2007
The purpose of this paper is to discuss programs that serve children with special needs in Iran, as well as early intervention. These programs are provided through two separate governmental organizations: the Well-Fare Department, and Special Education Organization. These programs include different types of habilitation services such as (a) vocational training, (b) speech therapy, occupational therapy, (c) community based rehabilitation and (d) special education services that are offered in special schools. Other programs consist of inclusive education and recently, early intervention. Private sectors carry out most early intervention programs in Iran. Since there is some evidence which indicate that children do not benefit enough from inclusive education, therefore the efficacy of such program needs to be investigated.
