The seven wonders of the world are to see, to hear, to touch, to taste, to feel, to laugh and to love. The most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man. If any of the above or a combination of the above are not possessed by any human being he/she is considered as disabled person, currently termed as ‘Differently-abled’ and we lovingly call them as as ‘Special’. It is an umbrella term covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions.
The students of grade VIII came to know about the special needs children have equal sustenance of emotion and knowledge if they are included amongst regular children.
They however were made clear that one needs emotion and knowledge to handle special needs children.
They were explained how it is therapeutic for both the challenged and the regular children if they are taught together. The regular children will develop cooperation and empathy.
Discussion is important to learning in all disciplines because it helps students process information rather than simply receive it.
Leading a discussion requires skills different from lecturing. The goal of the class group discussion was to get students to practice thinking about the course material and to put their viewpoint in front of whole class about the differently-abled children on how should they be treated and we should remember that a physically or mentally challenged child has rights too and more than sympathy, the child requires our empathy.
The students did some research about the education about the differently abled children and shared with the class that it is found that only around 2% of the disabled children have access to education.
The students also showcased their talent in poster making activity, they showed their abilities through art where in they expressed their feelings in the form of quotations, paintings, sketch etc. All the students participated and performed well.
