Special education is the practice of educating students with special educational needs in a way that addresses their individual differences and needs. Ideally, this process involves the individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment , materials, and accessible settings. These interventions are designed to help individuals with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and in their community that may not be available if the student were only given access to a typical classroom education.
In NIARC , our Special educators work with students who have a wide range of learning, mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. They provide a continuum of services, in which students with special needs receives varying degrees of support based on their individual needs. They adapt general education lessons and teach various subjects, such as reading, writing, and maths. They also teach basic skills, such as activities of daily living , social skills and communication techniques,. Student to teacher ratios are kept low, often 10:1.Classrooms are divided according to the intellectual ability and skills of children.
