Health & Living Jr 2018 Part 1 of 4: Why is my child struggling in school?

The education system in Malaysia can be quite demanding on the kids, even from as early as preschool, but does it cater to those with learning difficulties? Is technology in the classroom helpful or distracting? Could specialised schools be the answer or could it cause more damage? Our panel explores neurodiversity and shares how children can learn effectively, regardless of their abilities. This is an edited recording of the panel discussion that was held at the BFM Health & Living Jr event by AIA Vitality on October 26th.

Produced by: Tina Carmillia
