Special Education
S. B. Prasad
The first sentence in this book begins ‘What is special education?’. By the time the reader reaches the last sentence, he will have all the answers to this question because it has been written specially for those teachers and education administrators who have to deal with children below the normal par and for those researchers studying the intricacies of the mental process involved in how a child absorbs knowledge and how it uses it for its own mental progress. Special education takes on added importance in view of the fact that inclusion of children with disabilities into regular classes leads to an absence of social acceptance by their peer group. Most children with disabilities need to be taught how to relate to others, quite as much as students without disabilities need to be taught tolerance and understanding of those who are different from themselves. Special Education, and its need for ‘special children’ or what, in modern parlance, are called ‘challenged’ children (the extent, type and extent of their disability is immaterial) has been explained in all its variations and in all its forms. Extensively researched chapters elucidate for the teacher methods and ways to deal with them and how to educate them in a proper manner. Not only are the problems in dealing with such children identified, it is also explained how to cope with them and also ensure that a challenged child gets the right kind of education to enable him or her to take his rightful place in society. The contents include Introduction; What is Special About Special Education? What is Handicap? Education and Handicap; Teacher Preparation and Certification; Selection of Teachers; Classroom Management; Management of Child Behaviour; Permissiveness or Structure; Curriculum for Special Education; Curriculum and Sample Lesson Plans; Curriculum Materials—Reading, Spelling, Writing, Science; Evaluation for Educational Programming; Visual Processes; and Auditory Processes. ..more

Inclusive Education : Break Barriers and Open Doors
Sushil Kumar Goel
Disability is an issue that concerns all of us; it can affect anybody, of any background, in any country, at any time. Disability leads us into different pathways, challenging thereby, the prevailing ethic of measuring success by material achievement. PWDs have the right to make decisions that affect and shape their lives; rights at least being recognized are demanding empowerment, to enable them to realize their potential as individuals and to participate fully in society. Those who previously presumed to make decisions for them are beginning to listen to their needs and work together with them to meet those needs. There have been major shifts in the perception of disabled people’s rights, from charity to social development, from dependency to empowerment, from humanitarian concern to human rights. The principle of inclusion is the only way to realize the noble goal of Education for All (EFA). The contents inclue : · Facilitating Inclusive Education in Pre-School Years · Inclusive Education: Role of Parents, Special Educators and CBR Services · Need and Importance of Inclusive Education for Differently Abled Children in India · National Efforts towards Inclusive Education · Millennium Development Goals and Inclusive Development · Education—Key to Development · Learning Enhancement of Children in Special Training Admitted in Age Appropriate Classes under RTE Act, 2009 · Social Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities · Disability Rehabilitation: Concept, Approaches and Models · National Policy on Disability · Schemes of the Government in the Area of Disability Development · Early Intervention in Learning Disabilities: Best Practices · Vocational Training and Rehabilitation of Leprosy Patients · Bibliography and Index This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed/M.Ed/Diploma in Special Education/M.A Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/MSc Child Development /MPhil students in all Indian Universities.  ..more

Learning Disabilities
Rajshree TewariAradhana Tewari
This book is a sincere attempt to reduce the clouding doubts regarding learning disabilities which indeed is the least understood disability. It often gets really difficult for parents as well as teachers; to resolve the questions of what to do when a learning disability is detected, where to go or even what exactly the problem is. The book will thus, try to explain the various aspects of learning disabilities with clarity and defined goals for all the nine chapters. The first chapter offers the precise explanation to what the problem of learning disabilities is along with a brief account on the various types. The second chapter follows with an aim to unravel all the possible causes of learning disabilities. .After this fundamental knowledge regarding the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of learning disability, rest of the chapters provide a detailed account on each type Chapter three, four, five would deal with the issues of Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia whereas Chapter six and seven would highlight the features of specific learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Syndrome respectively. All these chapters clearly outline the definitions, signs, symptoms and effects of various types. The book would have been incomplete without the coping methods. Hence they too find a place in the book along with a detailed list of all the treatment and resource centres across states in India. The book ends on a positive note with a special mention on global achievers with learning disability. We hope the book strengthens the belief among all the stakeholders that children with learning disability can also dare to dream. We also pray that this book will help some child somewhere to realise his dream and bring a smile on his parent’s face. ..more
