Xiamen, Fujian province, promulgated a new policy for disabled children prior to Dec 3rd, the 23rd International Day of Disabled Persons.

The city will set up four special schools in Huli, Haicang, Jimei and Xiang’an districts over the next few years, according to a plan jointly made by multiple government departments.

Xiamen’s six districts will possess at least one standardized special school by 2016, said the plan.

Currently, there are three special schools in Xiamen, which accommodate 440 students.

Xiamen will provide a special education service to all disabled children and guarantee over 95 percent of them get access to nine-year compulsory education in 2016

Xiamen will also conduct annual physical examinations of those between 0 and 14. They will be accomodated in different schools based on their disability levels. Home tutoring will be offered if needed, said authorities.

The special school students will enjoy many favorable policies, including tuition exemption and extra subsidies.
