Welcome SENIA Japan!

We are glad to announce that SENIA Japan is now a reality! Special education advocates and practitioners in Japan have met and discussed the start of SENIA Japan. Their initial mission statement is:
SENIA is a network of educators, professionals and parents across Asia dedicated to supporting children with special learning needs.The SENIA Japan chapter is an extension of the endeavour to advocate for children and their learning. Through the promotion of inclusion we aim to raise awareness of learning differences, diversity in teaching and learning practices and encourage the development of personalised learning experiences for students identified with learning needs.

Congratulations to Srishti, Craig and Luci for starting SENIA Japan! We look forward to your updates.
