Special Needs Education School for the Physically Challenged
Our school is the only school for students with physical disabilities as an attached school in the national university. We provide high quality education to elementary, junior high, and high school students who have disabilities. The students can receive education that suits their abilities and individualities. As a school affiliated with the University of Tsukuba, we have a role to cooperate the university’s education and research activities. We conduct research on theoretical and practical education. In addition, we cooperate with other special needs education schools, in conducting collaborative researches. We try to make a social contribution in many ways, by providing a lecture to renew teacher’s license, accepting trainee teachers, providing nursing care experience and training for incumbent teaching staff.
