Should children with special needs be taught alongside children who do not have special needs?

Why? Why would you do that to the special needs child who obviously needs special attention? The extra attention will make other around him or her resentful. The child who obviously doesn't fit in will be constantly reminded of how different they are as kids close by make fun of them. It would be torture to the special needs child. And it is natural to want to make sure people are on a level playing field. If the special needs child has a learning disability they cannot keep up with the rest of the class so instead, the rest of the class has to be taught at a slower pace. Why should they have to do this? It makes no sense. If the special needs child has physical impairments but is mentally equal with their peers, it MAY make some sort of sense as long as it doesn;t present an unnecessary level of distraction for the rest of the class after they have time to adjust. For example, a child with terets spouting out obscenitites will have disruptive effects on the class throughout the year and not just at the beginning. The onlyreason anyone ever wants to do this is because it makes the parent FEEL better. It allows them to pretend that their child does not have a disability. When in fact, the child needs special attention not granted to others. Otherwise this child would not be called "special needs". The ONLY time this should be allowed is when the child themselves has expressed a desire from within to attempt to fit in with normal society. If this is the case, the kid should not be denied. Obviously at this point they are mentally capable of understanding the social consequences of their separation from the "normal" groups. This is a high-level function of the human brain and shows that the child is developmentally capable of entering that atmosphere. If the kid has not themselves expressed a desire to fit in, don;t force it upon them. More Opinions In the majority of US states "main streaming" of special needs students into the public school system is the law, the premise being that it will better prepare them for society in the general sense. A special needs student usually spends part of his or her learning time in a traditional classroom setting and the rest of the school day in an environment that is structured to his or her needs. To deliberately set children apart who are able to participate in normal learning conditions is a violation of their civil rights and quite simply cruel. Parents are not in denial, many cannot afford private education, many communtities do not have the funding for special education schools and there is absolutely no reason that special needs children cannot interact with other students when it does not constitute a physical danger or emotional trauma (generally instilled by supposed adults) to themselves or others. Answer Depnds on what their special need is. If they need a care nurse with them then not right along side but at least in the same school. If they just need medication for add or adhd then they can be taught right along side other children but not given extra time for anything or special attention. _____________________________________________________ Up till High School I was in the Rescores Room. And, yes kids make fun of me. Don't kids do that to make themselves look bigger then others. Every day after I got home from school I would ask my mom "Why did God make me this way"? She tried the best she could to answer but it wasn't enough. I just wanted to be like all the other kids not in Special Ed. In High School I was in a few Special Ed classes. But what they called Basic Classes. Being in the Special Olympics really helped me cope too. yes, kids want to hang out with kids and they want to think they are equal so yes if they wouldn't mind. Ask them if they want to be with regular kids or special education kids. The thing is that cool kids are the ones that hang if he wants to be with them then put him the regular kids but if not put him with special education students like they want. Parents just talk with your child and ask him want he wants to do.

When towing a car do you need to do anything special?

Answer . It depends on how far you're towing it and what kind of car it is. If it's a rear wheel drive vehicle and you're going very far you may want to disconnect the drive shaft. Other vehicles are on a case-by-case basis. Contact the dealer for specific information about your car. Often it's worth the expense of renting a "tow dolly" if you're towing a front wheel vehicle very far.

Walt Disney was most well-known for creating Disneyland and Mickey Mouse. Walt was not a very good artist and did not write many of the scripts. Walt could not even draw Mickey Mouse!

Abuse of special needs children?

Special Needs Children . Children with autism and downs symdrome are often abused in poor countries. In England and America special needs children are fully understood but that can not be said for other countries around the world like Fiji. . If a child is born with special needs the family are immediatly ashamed of it and lock it away. They feel it is an emnbarresment. One boy in Fiji was locked in a chicken coop- so small he couldn't even stand up. The chicken coop was small and filthy and to feed the child they would just through in chicken food and he would peck it off the floor with the other animals!. Some are taken to old peoples homes- sometimes younger than 6 months. they was be locked in a room and tied to the wall. They would never be untied and to feed them the would just chuck in animal food. The room would be empty and they would have nothing to do all day. they would not be able to talk since no-one had shown them how.. so clean them they would just hose the child. One boy was tied up for twenty years until one women came and changed his life. she adopted him and taught him how 2 speak and eat. For the first time in his life the boy (now 24) was loved and cared for. But this is very unlikely for other children that this happens to- so please try and help them.. by Aimee Johnson. born in 1997. printed in 2009

That depends...when I vacationed there, I spent 8 days there so that i could do the following: Go to each of the parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios (which used to be called MGM Studios)) Go to Downtown Disney, the huge shopping area. Downtown Disney also includes DisneyQuest, which is a huge building with many different attractions and video game-type rides inside. (It's so much fun!) There's also Cirque Du Soliel and Pleasure Island (though I heard they might be getting rid of Pleasure Island soon.) Visit each of the resorts, i.e. the Grand Floridian, Polynesian Resort, etc. And finally, the two water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. When I stayed there, we booked an extra two days or so to go back and do anything that we wanted to do over again, i.e go back to Epcot again, go to Downtown Disney again, etc. Then again, we were very hurry-hurry for at least the first 6 days...we really got stuff done. If you're more of a laid-back person and not as rushed, then you may want to think about booking more time to enjoy Disney World.

What are the characteristics of children with special needs?

The characteristics of a special need child vary. It is often hard to diagnose a disability in childhood because children develop at different rates; just because your child seems to be learning to walk or speak later than other children, does not mean that they have a disability. Most commonly, physical de formations such as widely set eyes are shown before any sign of a learning disability is. If you are concerned that your child may have a special need, your best bet is to go and see a specialist. It wouldn't hurt, even if you are unsure. Some types of special need are very profound even while the child is still young and especially while at school age. This is when the majority of special needs in children is detected. Things like dyslexia and ADHD will be very apparent and have almost undoubtedly recognisable signs. Children on the autistic spectrum, even those with high functioning autism will have some communication, social and emotional defects that will raise a flag of concern. Teachers will be able to use baseline assessment tests and mid term tests to see whether children are below the expected levels. Add in to the mix the concerns about a child's development socially, and its quite likely to pick up a need earlier on. Also, with regard to disability, lots of children are born with them. Things such as downs, hirschprungs disease, cerebal palsy and sensory impairments will require intervention from the moment they are born, as they have complications. Paediatricians can identify clear signs and characteristics and can diagnose very quickly. In agreement with the advice given above, I too would say, if in doubt, get it checked out.
