Our Mission

The Special Education Network in Asia (SENIA) was started by a group of international school teachers in China in 2002. The intention was to create a network forum for any professional working with children with special educational needs in Asia. The heart of SENIA is the advocacy for children with special needs in educational settings.

Since its beginnings, the group has grown and included many international school teachers, educational psychologists, support assistants and other professionals in the field of special needs.

SENIA has grown Asian country chapters including SENIA Jakarta, SENIA Manila, SENIB or SENIA Beijing, SENISH or SENIA Shanghai, and SENIT or SENIA Thailand.


SENIA is a network of educators, professionals and parents across Asia dedicated to supporting individuals with special learning needs.

Working together, we will provide a network to combine our strengths to help raise awareness and advocate for the individuals in our lives.
