It has been found that children with learning disabilities are often having average or above average intelligence. Therefore, it is necessary to build a culture of classroom and action research to improve teaching practice and teaching material for children with special needs. The home support for such children also requires training of parents also.
According to WHO, approximately 15 per cent of the world's population consists of differently abled or persons with special needs mostly living in low and middle-income countries like India.
With the agenda of education and opportunities for all and legal provisions of rights of differently abled persons, there is need for a paradigm shift from redressing human rights through remedial and compensatory designs to preventing problems through holistic and inclusive designs of human development.
With the emergent rights for persons with special needs, differently abled or Divangjan and legal protection of their rights through disability Acts there is a need to explore afresh the ability continuum of people for their relevant development.
The emergent scenario implicates the changes in the education system itself. There is a need to reform the existing school system that emphasizes similarity and uniformity leading to screening and exclusion through homogeneous grouping since are these mechanisms are discriminatory and violations of the rights of disabled children.
No just education system can be based on creating barriers and exclusion based on ability, race, religion, language, gender, poverty, class caste, and ethnicity. There is dire need to remove all these barriers for providing quality education to all through evolutionary and differentiated learning provisions.
