Unit 5: Special education needs (different functional abilities, motor, cognitive, social, behavioural, communication)
Special education is defined as specially designed instruction, which means that teachers or trainers have the responsibility to adapt the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to meet a student’s disability-related needs, and to ensure his or her access to the general curriculum and school activities. Parents can get help and advice from specialists, teachers and voluntary organisations. A child has special educational needs when he/she has learning dificulty or disability which make more difficult for him/her to learn in comparisson with other typically developing children at the same age. They may have problems with physical activities such as sports, recreation, exercises, game, play or planned exercise as well as challenges in communication or behaviour.
