THE Department of Education (DepEd) is launching the Search for 2013 Outstanding Special Education (SPED) Teachers and Outstanding SPED Centers to recognize educators who provide the best educational services to children with special learning needs. 

Education Secretary Armin Luistro in a statement said the search is open to all SPED teachers of children with hearing and visual impairments, learning and intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and children with giftedness and talents. It is also open to teachers handling regular classes, but at the same time rendered dedicated and excellent service in educating children with special needs. 

“Teaching while taking care of children with special needs is no easy task. That is why our SPED teachers deserve special recognition for their diligence and enthusiasm, to further boost their morale and motivate them more to perform their tasks as second parents to our special kids in the best way they can,” Luistro said. 

Screening for the division level starts this August, while regional screening will be on September, and the finals for the national level will be on October. The winners, who will receive plaques of appreciation and cash gifts, will be awarded during the National Conference on Special Education in November. 
Based on DepEd Memo No. 128 series of 2013, the criteria in selecting outstanding SPED teachers are instructional competence and teaching effectiveness, totaling to 90 points. Personal qualities and character carry 10 points. 

The criteria in selecting the best SPED center are “highly motivated learners who are high performers” (40%), linkages with other stakeholders (9%), accessible classrooms and functionality (9%), proactive management (12%) and competent, committed and dynamic staff (30%). The search is open to all recognized SPED Centers which have been in operation in the past five years.
