Knowledge is the supreme power and every child has the right to access this power. The schools hold the responsibility to provide education and the homely environment to children which helps them to bloom and secure a prosperous future.
Every child deserves to have a safe learning environment that is free from any discrimination or marginalization.
In the case of students with special needs, most of them are admitted to special schools. Nevertheless, we must acknowledge the increasing demand for Inclusive educational institutions where every child irrespective of their background gets a chance to gain knowledge.
One cannot ignore the importance of belongingness and unity in the development of skills in a child as they seek to attain knowledge in their growth years.
Our main aim should be to help a child with special needs to learn skills which can help them throughout their lives. An inclusive education institute ensures that they acquire these skills as they observe and interact with various children coming together under one roof.
Inclusive schools need to be well equipped with facilities that can help a child with special needs to attend the school without any hindrances. Such schools need to have highly qualified special educators and educational psychologists for planning out the curriculum which can equally benefit every child in their schools. The children participate in co-curricular and extracurricular activities and hence learn a lot about the community through collaboration with the rest of the students.
Every child is special and talented. The same goes for children with special needs. With proper intervention and support, they can integrate well into society. To help them receive the required support in the long run, CaregiverAsia has launched the Extraordinary Care Program that ensures continued long-term therapy for children with integrated therapy service providers and medical escorting service with a trained caregiver, in the unfortunate event that their parents or guardians are no longer able to care for them.
