I have chosen to explore the disproportionate representation in special education because it is a topic that is of great concern among minorities. It is my passion to understand and work for equal justice among all students in education. The assessment test is the first critical part of deciding if a child needs special education. Therefore, to give a correct assessment, it would help the child and family to assess the child in their natural environment for at least one

Living with disabilities on a daily basis can be more difficult then some realize. Many people who are born with developmental disabilities start their education and therapy at a very young age and there are also those people who have been diagnosed with a disability sometime during their lifetime. But what is there for them to do once they have graduated from high school or are told they are too old to continue in a regular school or they are simply told they aren’t accepted in the “normal” community? In all reality there really
In this essay I will attempt to explain people’s attitudes towards the person with disability, also about the causes due to which our society discriminates against them. Few of these reasons are stereotyping, psychological discomfort, lack of accommodation, paternalization & pity.
“Mother Father Deaf: Living Between Sound and Silence” by Paul Preston, portrays interviews with over 150 individuals, who are all hearing children of deaf parents. Being that Preston is a child of deaf parents, himself, it made it a lot easier for the informants to fully open up to him. He understands where they are coming from and is relatable for them. One of their biggest frustrations is having to explain deafness- in terms of their parents, as well as themselves, to people who don’t understand the culture. One interviewee even mentioned, “I wasn’t going to do the interview because I always get asked so many dumb questions. It’s a lot better knowing that you understand, that I don’t have to explain everything” (Preston, 46). The common bond between Preston and them helped gained a sense of trust between each other.
Many studies focused on how the services for special needs children contribute to their education. However, very few studies recognize the role of the society in their attitude towards success. This paper answers the following questions: 1) how education affect the disabled, 2) how to improve education outcomes for students with disabilities, 3) how can the society deal with the disabled students, and 3) how to identify special learning disabilities.
Along with many other topics of special education, the topic of inclusion has been surrounded by uncertainty and controversy for as long as the concept has been around.
Generally individuals with special needs continue to be the most disadvantaged and neglected in third-world countries (Charema, 2007). This paper is concerned with the moral necessity and biblical mandate of providing special education programs in Christian schools in third-world countries when society in those countries does not recognize or value people with special needs.
Education evidence has shown that negative attitudes are a major obstacle to the education of disabled children  and physician attitudes are often seen as a barrier to PWDs for seeking health care . In addition, uncertainty, not knowing how to interact with PWDs and lack of knowledge can often lead to negative attitudes. Some studies have shown that physicians are developing negative attitudes towards PWDs after working the first time with them due to a lack of training. Knowing the attitude of students is thus very important for the future of the country, because their attitude towards PWDs affects the future process of social integration of PWDs. Students from health care and educational programs are most likely going to work at some point with people with disabilities in their future career and this often without having special training on how to care, treat or teach people with disabilities. Their attitude and knowledge can influence a decision of a person with a disability seeking health care or attending school. In addition the professional’s attitudes can also influence the attitude of the person’s family and
