Education is a must for all. The average students can easily avail everything; they can walk, talk, see, listen and most importantly have an ability to understand –they know to interpret things, encounter issues. They argue and capable of generating ideas using creativity and general skills but what about the students with special needs?
We can easily appreciate a regular student on his excellent achievement. On the contrary, if a student with a disability does the same performance then we will not only encourage him, we evenly honour the special one for this accomplishment because a regular student is utilizing all his physical and mental skills, whereas a special student is deficient from any one of both.
Educational needs for special students
Special teaching varies from regular education in two ways
- First of all, for teaching exceptional students, additional specialist; such as speech therapist, specialised staff, physical therapist, aides, social worker, etc. are involved beyond regular classroom teacher.
- In a case of special students, specialised professional’s skills are needed to be matched with these students’ requirements.
- In teaching students with special needs, different intensive, individualised methods are used. Students learn about basic living skills with the help of PT (Physical therapy), OT (occupational therapy) and other related services like language and speech therapy.
- They need exceptional design curriculum because they are considered as non-degree students.
- A behaviour plan is designed for them by the collaboration of psychologist and other specialists to help child focus energy on learning and to meet daily living requirements
