The social model of disability suggests that if a child is not able to learn it is not due to the disability of the child; but due to the school system. It is therefore the responsibility of the school to impart education in such a way that the needs of all the children are met irrespective of their ability. The success of every educational program depends on the quality of the teachers and their attitudes. An inclusive curriculum is the need. Through this initiative, the dilemma of access and equity inherent in education system needs to be addressed. We aim to bring a change in educational institutions by addressing the concerns of policy inclusion and implementation to support the teachers to work in inclusive ways. Inclusion requires teachers to accept the responsibility for creating schools in which all children can learn and feel alike.

4. Preparation/ Adaptation of teaching aids to help the children with disabilities learn better. State with an example.
I offer students a multisensory approach to learning and take advantage of all the senses in helping these students enjoy, appreciate, and learn. I break learning into small steps and present well-prepared lessons in a variety of formats, including print, audio, and visual resources. Learning disabled students have difficulty learning abstract terms and concepts.
