Special Education For Special Needs Children
Specially-abled kids find difficulty catching up with other kids in their school due to developmental delays. Be it about performance in the playground, co-curricular or academics. They need additional assistance, which is provided through special education programs. These are designed according to the child’s needs and mental capacity. These programs are created and executed by educational professionals who have received the requisite training to work with specially-abled kids.
What Can you Expect in Special Education?
Special Education requires a multi-faceted approach. It consists of Individual Education Plans (IEP), which are dynamic in nature. From a broad perspective, the following are the components of special education.
- Speech Therapy : Autistic children and other special needs children have language problems. Speech therapy is essential for them to interact in the classroom.
- Occupational Therapy – It is a therapy that essentially helps specially-abled kids develop life skills, cognitive skills and motor skills that helps them accomplish school work and engage in playful activities.
- Remedial Education – Developmental education, basic skills education, compensatory education, preparatory education, and academic upgrading help students meet expected competencies in foundational knowledge like literacy and numeracy.
