Cyber wellness kit for special needs students

Students with special needs now have a cyber wellness programme tailored to their learning abilities.

The Singtel Cyber Wellness Toolkit was launched yesterday by the telco, which worked with Touch Community Services to develop the programme.

It has four themes : cyber relationships, online information, online harassment and bullying, as well as time management online.

Currently, it has been given to special education schools which are beneficiaries of the Singtel Touching Lives Fund, but the telco intends to make it available to all special education schools in Singapore.
