The Purpose

›Special education is a broad term that describes a wide variety of instructional services that are based on a child’s individual needs. Special education is not a place or a class. Children have the right to receive education in the ‘‘least restrictive environment.’’
(Weinfeld, R., & Davis, M. 2008)
›
 
The purpose of special education is to provide equal access to education for children ages birth through 21 by providing specialized services that will lead to school success in the general curriculum.
›
 
Research indicates that various program models, implemented both in special education and general education, can have moderately positive academic and social impacts for students with disabilities. 

Who need Special Education  

Children who have

›Cognitive deficits
 
›Learning disability
 
›Social-emotional difficulties
 
›Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
 
›Sensory Impairment
 
›Stressor

(Asa Marokus, MD 2015)

 

 

•Students are termed “disabled” because they have real, persistent, and substantial individual differences and educational needs that regular education has been unable to accommodate. These individual differences vary widely, from medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, to dyslexia, to pervasive and chronic maladaptive patterns of behavior. Many of these same students will not be considered disabled once they leave school. Nonetheless, their specialized learning needs are intense and legitimate

 

(Special Education for Students with Disabilities: Analysis and Recommendations)

What does a Special Education Teacher do? 

Children with special needs require unique instruction by specially trained professionals to help them achieve their highest potential and strive to progress beyond their limitations. Special education teachers are patient, understanding educators dedicated to giving each individual student the tools and guidance needed to help them maximize success
(Special Education for Students with Disabilities: Analysis and Recommendations)
 
Research has shown that regular education, if properly modified, can meet the needs of many more students with disabilities, but doing so is challenging.
 
›Teachers who are most effective at raising overall academic standards are likely to have a lower tolerance for students with special needs.
(Anne, M. Hocutt)
›
Specially-trained educators create and apply appropriate curricula and assign activities that are specific to each student’s abilities and needs. 
 
›Special education teachers also involve themselves in each student’s academic, social and behavioral development.
 
›Special education teachers provide specially designed instruction to individuals with disabilities. 
›They work to ensure that students with disabilities reach their learning potential
›Before directly helping the child first special educators to help parents.
›
›A child’s first community is the family. Families who have a child with special needs often have additional concerns, along with the particular strengths they have developed to help their child thrive
›
›To ensure its acceptance, parents involvement must be viewed as a legitimate activity of the school, and reaching the family must be considered as Important as reaching a child. 
 
›The special education teachers do not only take classes like normal school or college teachers. They take active part in all of the activities that these students perform including the academic and non-academic works
›The teachers who serve disabled students create stronger bonds with their students quicker than the regular teachers

 (Alleducationschools ,6 July 2015)

 How Special Educators can Helps Parents

›Research indicates that children who attend school are more likely to succeed if their parents are involved in the child’s learning environment,
 
›Parents are the most important people in a child’s education. While teachers and even schools can change from year to year, parents are the constant connection between children and learning, both at home and at school.

(Wilmshurst, L., & Brue, A. W. 2005)

 

›Children adapt, adjust, and cope better in preschool when their family are involved in attending meetings and sessions at the school
 
›Schools and children are safer when families and communities are involved.
 
›Parents can provide us with information on the child’s development, strengths, and needs, and they can share strategies that they use at home. This can include ways the family has adapted the environment, for example, to help a child with mobility or perceptual difficulties. We may be able to use some of these ideas in the classroom. 

 Why involve families ?

 A parent's continued participation in the education process is essential to a child's success. child's 

 

 

 

 

You have the power to push for the appropriate services and environment to allow your child to thrive. Knowing how to get involved in the special education process gives you a sense of purpose in

Factors Affecting Outcomes for Special Education Students 

›Student academic and social success is affected more by the instructional models employed and the classroom environment than by placement in general or special education.
 
›Students with learning disabilities (LD) perform slightly better and think of themselves as more competent academically when placed in special education.
 
›Students with severe emotional disturbance (SED) are more likely to succeed in general education if they take part in vocational education and are integrated into the school, for example, through sports participation. However, students with SED who have a history of course failure may be more likely to drop out of school if placed in general education.
 
›Students with hearing impairments appear to gain some academic advantage but suffer some loss of self-concept when placed in general education. The strength of the child’s auditory and oral skills is a critical determinant of success in general education. On average, hard-of-hearing students do not perform as well academically as normally hearing students in any setting, and the gap in performance increases with age.
 
›
 
 
 
›When the inclusion program brings a lower overall teacher-student ratio to the classroom, the nondisabled students are likely to benefit academically

 

›Students with severe mental disabilities, usually with IQs below 50, typically have greater social integration as a primary goal. Programs providing supportive transitional services have been successful at avoiding placements in residential settings
 
›Nondisabled students do not appear to be impacted by the inclusion in general education of students with learning disabilities, mild behavior disorders, or severe mental disabilities, as long as supportive services are provided. When the inclusion program brings a lower overall teacher-student ratio to the classroom, the nondisabled students are likely to benefit academically

(Anne, M. Hocutt )

 

›Effective schools appear to be more likely to benefit nondisabled low achievers than to benefit special education students. Outcome data for students with disabilities in identified effective schools are inconclusive.
 
 
›Students with educable mental retardation (EMR), usually defined as having an IQ between 70 and 50 combined with deficits in adaptive behavior, appear to be particularly sensitive to classroom environment. A supportive teacher, instruction style, and classmates have a greater impact on outcomes for these students than for students without disabilities.
 

How basically Soft Tarbiyah Helps:

 

Soft Tarbiyah is an online homebased teaching.With  Special educators who can asses your child and help them accordingly

 

The basic purpose is not teach them like regular classrooms but to enhance

 whatever they are capable of and then improve their abilities

 

As they need lots of motivation and we have to work patiently with them.

 

Hometeaching a special needs child is a very advantageous choice.A homeschool program will allow children with special needs to have their specific needs addressed and also avoid many obstacles that they would face in a traditional classroom. When it comes to children with learning disabilities or other severe impairments.

 

 

 

Online home teaching can also help them in distracting from their negative behaviours as children mostly show tantrums and hyperactive behaviors at home

This will be a unique and interesting experience for them improving their attention span also.

Our special educators will not only help children with special needs but also guide their parents about their academics handling as well as parental counseling.

 Special education today is still focused on helping children with disabilities learn. But this no longer has to mean that regular children cannot take advantage.

“Special education refers to a range of services that can be provided in different ways and in different settings to different people”

 

Our special educators can also teach and guide a regular child we are not only specifically working for children with special needs.

 

The best quality of a special educator is that his/her patience and making a task easy and doable for the child.

 

Children who are good at academics, but somehow parents are not satisfied or want more improvement in their children can also approach us

 

There is always a plus point by learning from a special educator as they work individually on selected task and do not make child over burden

Special educator can also counsel your child for any issue he/she may facing

They can also workon their psychological needs, building confidence and personalities.

How Can We Help Children Without Special Needs

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

We will make a proper education plan after we will asses the child.

What task we have to teach and in what estimated time.

There will be a 1 hour session day and time will be decide after mutual understanding of parents and our special educators.

It could be only on weekends or thrice a week as per the child’s need
