Special Education Needs

Republic Polytechnic (RP) is committed to building an inclusive community, which promotes a culture of understanding, and mutual support that enhances the learning experience and development of students with Special Education Needs (SEN). 

The Special Education Needs (SEN) Unit has been specifically set up to cater for students with SEN. It will tap on relevant resources (within and outside of RP) to provide transition and support services to meet the individual needs of our students with SEN. Some of the assistance RP provides includes:

  • Academic Support Arrangements

  • Greater Accessibility Arrangements for Examinations

  • Provision of Assistive Technology Devices and Support Services

  • Referral to Counselling and other Support services

Assistive Technology Devices

Assistive Technology refers to any device, software, or equipment that helps students with Special Education Needs circumvent their challenges so they can learn, communicate, and function.Such examples include provision of walking sticks, text to speech software, or even specialised keyboards for those who may due to mobility issues.

RP has set up an AT Devices Loan Library for students to loan and test out the devices before they consider purchasing it for themselves.

To find out more about how to loan or purchase the AT devices (using MOE SEN Fund), you can email help-SEN@rp.edu.sg
