Welcome to Jeevaniyam Ayurveda Hospital
The answer to the above question is rather obvious, teachers are woefully underprepared when it comes to solving the issues of children with special needs. We see all around us the result of that, most schools don't even have accessibility options for the physically disabled although several states and central government organizations encourage the setting up of such infrastructure. We see this emerging issue and yet there is no interest at the policy-making level to effectively fight this problem. As a society, we have not yet matured t relate that students with special disabilities are indeed eligible for further assistance than what the other students receive.
The root of this problem is really the teacher training institutes themselves that do not equip the teachers to deal with students with disabilities and because no such training is imparted at that level most teachers have to go about dealing with such issues by instinct and that often does not deliver the ideal result. There is an urgent need to institutionalize the training of new teachers in such a way that they are better equipped to deal with the problems faced y children with disabilities.
Furthermore, schools face funding crunches, this prohibits them from solving the problems faced by students such as clean toilets, effective playgrounds etc, needless to say, the problems faced by disabled students take last priority in their hierarchy of priorities.
In conclusion, as of right now, schools are woefully unprepared when it comes to taking care of children with disabilities and parents would be well advised to seek alternative modes of care that can nurture their children in the way they need to be nurtured. If you or anyone you know has a child facing such difficulties, reach out and we'll see to it that your child receives the care he deserves.
