To enable more disabled junior high school graduates to study in senior/vocational high schools, the Ministry of Education in 2001 implemented a "4-Year Plan to Place Disabled Students for a Period of 12 Years" , allowing disabled junior high school graduates to study in senior/vocational high schools, in an effort to fully realize their potential. The main purpose is to provide disabled students with the opportunity to study and be flexibly placed in a senior/vocational high school near them. This placement operation has been assigned to the Ministry of Education's Central Region Office as one of its regular annual tasks in an attempt to lay the foundation for 12-year national education for disabled students.
In addition, in response to the "Plan to Implement the Policy of Exam-Free Admission to Senior/Vocational High Schools and 5-Year Junior Colleges", a taskforce on exam-free admission for disabled students will be formed to devise a relevant operating mechanism.
IV. Disabilities Eligible for Placement
In the 2009 academic year, students with any of the following disabilities are eligible for placement under the plan: students who are mentally challenged, physically challenged, visually impaired or hearing impaired, and students with learning disabilities, autism or cerebral palsy. Plans are being made to include students suffering from severe emotional disorders and to place students mostly in special education schools and in the special education and resources classes of senior/vocational high schools in the 2010 academic year.
