For individuals living with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, it is a daily struggle, but special needs education is becoming more accessible in Lebanon. To help mitigate the struggle, organizations like the Lebanese Center for Special Education (CLES) have established support centers to assist students with learning difficulties and help these children succeed in school and beyond. Monday, CLES held its second annual conference on learning disabilities, entitled "Together for DYS," to probe educational and societal challenges faced by special needs students in Lebanon.Bou Saab said there should be more awareness on how to integrate students with disabilities, and said he hopes public schools will be better equipped for special needs students in the future.In 2013, CLES signed a protocol with the Education Ministry to launch 200 support rooms or special needs classes in 200 public schools over the next five years, and technical support for up to 10 years.So far, 104 schools have been set up with a special education room.
