Challenges in working for people with disabilities

Challenges in working for people with disabilities

Special education is a very challenging field. Here are a few stressors in working for rehabilitation.

1.  Lack of appreciation.  

It has a more emotional component. Special education teachers, in most instances, do not get as much appreciation as their general education colleagues. . Special education is necessary, special education is an actual form of teaching, and special education is special.

2. Parent support

In some cases, It is so disappointing when a child who was once so motivated to do well no longer cares because their parents do not value education and training..and have expressed as much to their child.

3. Variability of student”s needs

In all classes, you will see students who are at different ability levels, learn in different ways, and understand concepts at different times. Differentiated instruction and individualized teaching practices are challenging for all teachers. It gets even more difficult in special education, multi-aged classroom.

4. Awareness in society about non-visible intellectual disabilities

Our society needs to be aware of and sensitive about Non-visible disabilities. Families of such children/adults suffer badly because of isolation and lack of social contact/support.
Media can play a major role.

5. Group Home Facilities are badly required for adults with disabilities as old parents are constantly worrying about what will happen to their children after their parents” death.

6. Fundraising
Unfortunately, ”˜disability” is not a preferred area for the corporate sector to spend their CSR funds. Govt should give some credit to encourage the same.

7. More than children with permanent disabilities, their parents need guidance, support, and counseling to deal with complex issues that are not temporary. It is a challenge to motivate them to seek professional help and empower themselves to live a life worth living.

 

Looking at the Bright Side of Life

Looking at the Bright Side of Life

The world is full of people who”ve achieved the unthinkable by beating all odds. Looking at the bright side of life, they have inspired thousands to dream on and punch above their weight.

In a world that isn”t very kind to even an able-bodied person trying to achieve their dreams, one can only imagine what a specially abled person might have to go through. When faced with such cynicism, finding a silver living and egging on is all one can really do.

Learn the lesson with these incredible stories of people who didn”t let disability dictate their life.

Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan: A Paradise for Special Children

Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan: A Paradise for Special Children

A boon for specially abled students, Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan aims to provide world class education to those who need it most.

Schools are like second homes for children, accounting for nearly 8 hours of their day. Hence, it is necessary that we enrol our kids in fully functional, infrastructurally sound schools.

It is an undeniable fact that quality education is a must for both specially abled and able bodied children. Sending them to a school where buildings look run-down and playgrounds need work can never be a good idea.

Schools should create an environment that not only ensures learning, but also pays special attention to the mental and physical well-being of its students. Many studies suggest that students in schools with poor infrastructure tend to achieve lesser as compared to the ones studying in schools that have better infrastructure and facilities.

Contrary to popular belief, children with special needs must be enrolled in primary schools. To place them in appropriate educational settings, parents need to get them assessed by doctors, psychologists and special educators. While children with mild and moderate disabilities may be integrated in normal schools, those with severe disabilities can opt for special/remedial schools and dropouts who have problems in availing benefits of normal schools can join open schools. All the children with learning disabilities alone are first managed in the normal schools.

Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan, a charitable school for the specially abled run by Ponty Chadha Foundation is fully committed to the rehabilitation of children with mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism and other disabilities. It is one of the very few private rehabilitation institutions that don”t charge any money for services provided to its students. Presently, the institution provides rehabilitation services to about 1000 beneficiaries.

MBCN School

Designed to be disabled-friendly, Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan has 35 classrooms, 1 physiotherapy hall, 4 speech therapy departments, 1 seminar hall and various other amenities, including a ramp and sensor-operated doors at the entrance for wheelchair users. It also has a bigger ramp inside the school building for easy movement.

therapies for the specially abled

The special school also offers multiple therapies for the specially abled, such as:

  • Early Intervention
  • Special Education
  • Speech Therapy
  • Play & Recreation
  • Vocational Training
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Extra Curricular Activities

 

Education for All: Inclusive Education for Children with Special Needs

Education for All: Inclusive Education for Children with Special Needs

However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.

  • Stephen Hawking

At the onset of each school session, it’s always fun to unwrap each child’s personality. Children too are excited to participate in discussions in their new classrooms, but have you ever thought what goes in the mind of a child with special needs? Are we, as teachers and academicians, welcoming the differently abled with open arms?

education for disabled child in india

People tend to forget that a person with disabilities is just another human being with desires, talents, skills – like everyone else. Everybody, regardless of their ability, has something to give to the world. We should never forget that!

Sometimes a little help from peers and families works the best. While education is recognized as a pathway of moving out of poverty, there is very little focus on how children with disabilities can be effectively included in the education system. Every parent wants their child to be happy and accepted by their peers, have a healthy life and education. Allowing a child with special needs to interact and learn with other students in school improves their academic performance, their personality, and they tend to exceed expectations.

education for physically handicapped

Education is every child”s right, not a privilege. As a society, we should embrace inclusive education, and encourage children with disabilities to participate in everyday activities, build friendships and get access to opportunities. Once specially abled children receive proper opportunities, they can get involved in shaping the society and achieving laurels for the country, and their families can escape or avoid the trap of poverty. Inclusive education is one of the fundamental ways to welcome diversity amongst all learners. It promotes the idea that “having a disability of any kind should never stop anybody from conquering the world.”

When the specially abled are accepted and educated the way others are, they can turn their life around and achieve true, tangible success.

Although progress has been made in the education sector, India still faces challenges in addressing the educational needs of children with disabilities. Together with governments, educators, donors and other partners, we can help to close gap and achieve education for all.
