Why Special Education is Important?
For children with MDVI, a meaningful education can enable them gain independence and participate in family and community activities. Via special education, children with multiple disabilities learn how to live an independent life, something which comes naturally to normal children, has to be taught to children with multiple disabilities.
Challenges Parents Face
Accessing Special Education
Exclusion from Mainstream Schools
Most mainstream schools exclude children with MDVI, considering them too complex to teach.
Lack of trained Educators
Most schools, even special schools, lack adequately trained educators to educate children with a complex profile like MDVI, so families have no choice but to keep them at home.
Depending on the degree and nature of his/her disability, each child has different requirements. Teaching strategies need to account for these differences in skills, abilities and experiences, and most schools lack these methodologies.
Nowhere to Turn
Many families struggle to understand their children’s learning needs; while they want them to have the best possible future, they do not know where to turn for assistance and resources.
