Inclusive India Initiative Competition - "Making a classroom fully inclusive: Attitudes& Resources"

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.

I provide them with concrete objects and events—items they can touch, hear, smell, etc.

Parents send their child to schools to seek education. Education which is light of our life and its ambience makes our thinking and actions more scientific and mature. Students are supposed to be a clean slate. Their life is a journey to discover who they really are. No one wants this journey to be broken. Teachers are our nation builders. Responsibility of make good citizens are on their shoulders. Teachers always act as guide and phillosopher, also teaches us art of living.

Namaskar!

My submission is not for competition prize money but a path to change. I am not an educator, nor policy maker nor support staff in schools in India. I work for an education board and qualificaitons authority in NZ. I would suggest that our educaiton minister, PMO and all those responsible for making this change are aware of it. I am willing to assist from my perspective in whatever way I can provide.

Thanks
Adesh

स्कूल प्रशासन को पुणे अध्यापकों की भर्ती करनी चाहिए जो अध्यापक हर तरह के अपंग बच्चों को पढ़ने की जानकारी रखता हूं एसे अध्यापको को इंटरनेट डिजिटल गैजेट्स का इस्तेमाल करना एप्लीकेशन का इस्तेमाल करना आना चाहिए साथ ही साथ क्लास मैं साउंड स्पीकर होनी चाहिए और वाई-फाई युक्त क्लासरूम होनी चाहिए क्लास में एक बहुत बड़ी डिजिटल स्क्रीन होनी चाहिए यदि बच्चा को किसी भी प्रकार की परेशानी हो तो रहता तो वह अपने परिवार से Skype जैसे वीडियो कॉन्फ्रेंसिंग से पर बात भी कर सके डिजिटल पेन भी इस्तेमाल होने चाहिए
