Special Needs : Difficulties faced by children in academics at school level     

1. Learning Disability (LD)

Learning Disability (LD)

A specific Learning Disability/Difficulty (LD) faced by children in school in usually addressed as ‘Dyslexia’. These students have an average to above average range of intelligence. They show marked difference in their performance and actual potential (which is higher). They have difficulty in learning language in one or more areas such as-

• Reading (dyslexia)
• Writing (dysgraphia)
• Mathematics(dyscalculia)
• Reasoning, Spelling
• ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),ADD (Attention Deficit disorder)

These students need help from their parents and teachers to help them cope with their studies as they have a difficulty in classroom learning which is one of the areas where special attention is required.

2. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Students with Asperger’s Syndrome (one of the syndromes under ASD) are in an educable group with usually high intellectual level. They need help with their social development in school and in society. Despite high intelligence they may face academic difficulties due to their inability to cope with usual social surroundings.

3. Epilepsy (Seizure disorder)

Epilepsy (Seizure disorder)

Epilepsy is a brain disorder. When someone has epilepsy, clusters of nerve cells in his or her brain sometimes send signals in an abnormal way. These nerve cells normally make impulses that cause other nerve cells, glands, and muscles, to create human thoughts, feelings, and actions. But, for a person with epilepsy, the normal pattern of activity changes. This can cause the person to have strange sensations, emotions, and behaviour, or sometimes convulsions or seizures, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. Students with epileptic seizures face difficulty with memory which may hamper their academic development. The medication prescribed for an individual with epilepsy may hamper the process of learning.

4. Developmental Delays

Developmental Delays

As a child grows and develops, he/she learns different skills, such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, or waving goodbye. These skills are known as developmental milestones. A child with a developmental delay does not reach these milestones at the same time as other children of his/her same age. Very often, at least initially, it is difficult or impossible to determine whether the delay is permanent (i.e., known as a disability) or whether the child will ‘catch-up’ and be ‘normal’ or nearly ‘normal.’ There are five main groups of skills that make up the developmental milestones. A child may have a developmental delay in one or more of these areas.
• Gross motor: using large groups of muscles to sit, stand, walk, run, etc., keeping balance, and changing positions.
• Fine motor: using hands and fingers to be able to eat, draw, dress, play, write, and do many other things.
• Language: speaking, using body language and gestures, communicating, and understanding what others say.
• Cognitive: Thinking skills including learning, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning, and remembering.
• Social: Interacting with others, having relationships with family, friends, and teachers, cooperating, and responding to the feelings of others. A delay in achieving these milestones, during early years of the child may lead to a learning difficulty.

5. Visual or Hearing impairment

6. Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a term used to describe a problem with movement and posture that makes certain activities difficult. Even though someone who has cerebral palsy has problems moving his or her muscles, this is not because there is something wrong with the muscles or nerves. These difficulties are caused because of problems in the brain. The child might have had an injury to the brain, or has a underdeveloped brain. These problems can affect the way the brain controls movement and posture. As a result of this condition the child may face certain learning difficulties.

7. Muscular Dystrophy

7. Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is the term used to describe a group of diseases of the muscles. With muscular dystrophy the muscles become weak and can waste away.

8. Prematurity

8. Prematurity

Prematurity is not a disability itself, but a condition that is a major cause of both intellectual and physical disabilities and other chronic health problems. These children may face lifelong problems including:
• Intellectual disabilities, such as mental retardation or learning difficulties
• Cerebral palsy
• Breathing and respiratory problems, such as chronic lung disease
• Vision and hearing loss, and
• Feeding and digestive problems.

Some children may face a temporary or a lifelong phase of difficulty due to environmental changes in their circumstances. There could be a number of behavioural issues interfering with school learning, along with certain environmental factors which are not conducive to the child’s learning processes. These may cause a difficulty in the overall personality development of the child. These issues when handled by the parents and teachers enable children to cope with such situations.
