INTRODUCTION

“Disability need not be an obstacle to success. I have had motor neuron disease for practically all my adult life. Yet it has not prevented me from having a prominent career in astrophysics and a happy family life.”

-- STEPHEN W HAWKING


An estimated 93 million children around the globe suffer from some or other kind of disability and having equal access to health care, education, and employment opportunities is still a dream for many. Aspirations, dreams, wishes, they have it all, a wish to live a normal happy life.


Education is considered one of the major key factors that determine human capital formation and hence personal well-being and welfare. By excluding children with special needs from opportunities for employment and education, we bear a devastating blow to the social and economic costs, making them an important part of society.


A person’s environment has a huge impact on the experience and extent of disability and Inaccessible environments create disability by creating barriers to participation and inclusion. But getting accepted by society remains one of the issues on the top be addressed, Therefore, moving away from traditional pedagogies and towards more learner-centered approaches that recognize that each individual has an ability to learn and a specific way of learning; can bring the necessary social awareness in the society and normalize lives of disabled people.


“Disability is one of the most serious barriers to education across the globe.”


So how are we supposed to fix this?


The answer is inclusive education.


Inclusive education is the most effective way to give all children a fair chance to go to school, learn and develop the skills they need to thrive. Inclusive education means all children in the same schools. It means real learning opportunities for groups who have traditionally been excluded. For children who are not disabled, contact with children with a disability in an inclusive setting can, over the longer term, increase familiarity and reduce prejudice. Inclusive education is thus central in promoting inclusive and equitable societies. These systems value the unique contributions students of all backgrounds bring to the classroom and allow diverse groups to grow side by side, to the benefit of all.

  • There is no area restriction.

  • There is no site restriction.

  • Encourage activities involving both sets of children

  • Challenges dealing with to be mentioned prior

  • Unarticulate, visually impaired, auditory impaired and physically challenged are must to be considered.

We aim to provide a settlement that helps the society to enclose this gap and encourage a unified front against the present discrimination towards specially abled by educating regular children about this from the beginning.


Starting with the elementary schools (the stepping stone of education) our objective includes incorporation of children with disabilities in education which requires both systemic and school level change.We also need to plan for the main aspects of provision – such as making school buildings accessible, and developing the curriculum, teaching methods, and materials to meet a diversity of needs.
