I am gradually beginning to recognize the implications of having a child with a disability included in a regular classroom – for the benefit of the child and for the other children. However, there are times when I do find it challenging to have a child who is continuously looking for attention by misbehaving, disturbing at circle time, taking off his shirt, making faces, lying down – and be all by myself with the 12 children. I attempt to overlook the behavior, try varieties kinds of presenting the circle time, observing the child cautiously what his interests are.
