differently-abled children

The inclusive education concept is not new to India but has gained prevalence in last decade when the Right to Education (RtE) became a fundamental right. The underlying thought of inclusive education is that every child is treated equally and given a space to realize his/her true potential. It also implies pedagogical practices inside the school where needs of every individual is duly recognized irrespective of the caste, class, ethnic, gender and ability differences.

Early Childhood (Care and) Education service, along with desirable societal investment for the nation’s future, is the most significant step towards fulfillment of the rights of every child to “survival, protection, and development”.
Its qualitative availability and accessibility from the formative years of life lays the very foundation of holistic and lifelong development of a child. Generating community awareness with appropriate policy, effective implementation strategy and efficient interdepartmental convergence is a must for realising its outcomes successfully.
