Thirty years on
In the last three decades, the impact of the APSN on its students and society has been noticeable. Through consistent efforts at public education, at both government and societal levels, the students’ education is now better funded by the government. Greater awareness of its work also means that mainstream schools now refer children to the APSN. Children who need a slower pace of learning, and would otherwise have been left behind in the mainstream education system, can now have their needs met.
