Childhood is the most crucial stage where a child starts learning, playing, and discover new things in their life. Our education system is made in a standardized format for everyone. But some children might find difficulty in learning things through this format. If your child struggles in school, then special education is the perfect solution to it.
Special education (SPED) or special-needs education is a professionally designed course for educating students with disabilities in special school with special teachers in a way that addresses their individual differences and special needs.
SPED cover disabilities like learning disorder refer as LD (dyslexia and dyspraxia), communication disorder (speech-language disorder), emotional and behavioural disorder (ADHD), physical disabilities (respiratory disorder, blindness, epilepsy and sleep disorder) development disabilities (autism, intellectual disability) and many more.
Students with these kinds of disabilities are likely to benefit from multiple strategies like grouping, separate classroom or recourse room, rotate lessons, providing books and material, games and other activities that can provide extra help for those kids who learn and think differently.
An individual education program (IEP) also known as individual learning plan (ILP) is a required step in the process of receiving special education services. Children between the age of three and twenty one are qualified for SPED.
For the children during early years of development from birth to the age of three years old can obtain an IFSP that is individual family service plan. Infant or toddler can qualify for IEP through their public local school district once they turn three years old.
