The Department of Special Education at National Taichung University was first founded in 1993. In the course of its development, in 2001 and 2004, our department established the first Graduate Institute of Special Education and Assistive Technology as well as the Graduate Institute of Early Intervention in Taiwan. Owing to the increasing need for transformation in the educational system, our department underwent its first reform in 2006 by merging the graduate institutes with the Department of Special Education.
Our department offers educational resources that support the development of prospective teachers and professionals, such as, assessment and identification batteries, audio/visual equipment, multimedia, and abundant book and teaching material collection. Our department facilities include: a special education center, and assistive technology laboratory, and a resource classroom.
