Things to consider while giving education to specially-abled students

Want to know how to give a Specially-abled Child education? This article has some suggestions and requirements which are to be considered for imparting knowledge and education to a Specially-abled Child.

There are so many children who want to learn but unfortunately, they are Specialy-Abled or Disabled. We discourage them while talking and teas them on their disability. Even they are scared to talk or express their feelings if we do so. Actually, even if they are disabled, they have a special ability that we the normal people don't have. And that's why they are also termed as Specially-Abled people

1. Equality in the classroom

Children who need some special needs are most of the time compared with other students in the class. What is required is that we need to set some common rules for the entire classroom and confirm that the differently abled students also follow those rules. Don't tease differently abled students because of their physical disabilities. If the students with special needs do not always use or do not have the same school learning tools, you can help them by giving them your learning tools for some time.

2. Communicate frequently with the parents

Communicating with the parents of the differently abled students is very necessary because some parents think that 'No one values our child because of their physical disabilities.'

First of all, know how the parent prefers/likes to communicate and talk and make them feel comfortable with your polite conversation/words. There are some parents who feel embarrassed by thinking they have a child with some physical disabilities and they need some special needs in case if it is so, it is your responsibility to make them realize them that having a child with some physical disabilities and who needs some special needs is not their mistake and not the child's mistake also.

3. Learn about the disabilities faced by the student

Know the disabilities of the students. For that, you can contact the previous teacher of the student and ask about his/her disabilities to assist them in. When you know more about his disability, you can teach him to a greater extent.

4. Research about their strengths and weaknesses

Know about the strengths and weakness of the differently abled students. Encourage them to try and use their strengths to improve themselves. Also, help them to change their weakness to strength then they can understand everything.

5. Tell the differently abled students to contact you when they need help

The differently abled students needed so much support. That is why they cannot understand or learn things. So help them to learn and understand things. Also, tell them and encourage them to participate in some different activities and competitions.


Those were tips to help encourage children who are differently abled. We should not treat them as different ones, but treat them the same as we treat a normal child because they have the ability that we have.

A very thoughtful article by you, Aditya. Specially-abled students do feel inferior in a class full of normal students. At a young age, children often fail to understand the complexities of disabled students/people and make fun of them, tease them and call them names. They refuse to spend time with them. All of this, eventually, affects the mental health of the disabled students and they are forced to create a shell around them and live in it. Eventually, when they grow up, they become recluse and get agitated soon if someone comments on them. They should be treated equally and should never be pitied upon, all the while keeping in mind their special needs.
