The mental disabilities include autism, Down syndrome and many more. They need support from their parents, guardians, teachers, the government, and anyone else is taking part in their day-to-day lives. Such children need attention so that they do not miss on the important parts of their lives. This study aims to look at the people involved in their lives and the roles and responsibilities they play.
For those children and young people who researchers identify as having such needs, will be hard to attain the support they need. It takes a long for the families with children with such conditions to know that they need extra support. The support system that is available to the young individuals and children is very complex.

Authors have noticed that there is a replacement of special needs and learning-difficulty assessment statements with a health care and education plan for the young individuals and children with complex requirements.
The government should provide an option of personal funds for those with health care and educational plans so that they can decide on which services are suitable for their children and families. The local commissioners should work together effectively for the better of children with disability needs and bettering the communication among the different services provided.

In the past, education colleges did not have special educational needs functions. The necessities that relate to academies show the needs presently in the funding agreement of the majority signed the US Academies Act 2010. Placement of these necessities on the legislation face will give better clarity to parents, young people, and academies and will make sure that further education schools face similar needs for the first time.

Not to mention, that this has given many disabled individuals chance to a quality education. This case has made congress take a closer look at the individualize needs that is acquired for students by mandating the school to find a program that will help students individual needs in educational system. “Power imbalances between parents and school districts cannot be eliminated, but the mandatory provision of information will go a long way” (Kotler, p.553, 2014). This help secure a people with disabilities a chance for a better future in educational system.
In 1991 the Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act was replaced by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. This law was passed to provide free and appropriate public education to every child with a disability. It requires that each child with a disability “have access to the program best suited to that child’s special needs which is as close as possible to a normal child’s educational program” (Martin, 1978). The Individualized education program (IEP) was developed to help provide a written record of students’ needs and procedures for each child that receives special education services. The IEP will list all the services to be provided, the student's performance level, academic performance, and
“The Warnock Report in 1978, Followed by the 1981 Education Act, Radically changed the conceptualization of Special Educational Needs” (The Stationery Office (HMSO), 2006b; pg.11). Moving onto the current
Assessing the needs is the first logical stepping stone of the health promotion planning cycle stones. Assessing children with disabilities in the school setting can be applied with the collaboration with the teachers. The school may recommend further assessment or screening for the child with disability based on the teacher’s recommendations, observation, or by giving the children special tests. In addition, parents are also needed to share the assessment of their child if needed. At the beginning, I am going to define the relevant population demographic and social characteristics, behavior, lifestyles,
Areas of need could be a special learning difficulty such as dyslexia, it could be a behavioural, emotional and social difficulty such as ADHD, a visual or hearing impairment such as blindness or partially deaf. Some children do not show clear signs of any of the above learning difficulties and may not have a clear diagnosis but clearly need support in areas of their learning.
Code, Chapter 15, Protected Handicapped Students, which implements Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Schools are required to provide necessary accommodations for qualifying students to have an equal opportunity to participate in the school program. This written plan is developed by an IEP team for students in need of special education. This plan outlines how the school will provide a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment and is usually initiated by the teacher or administrator. However, parental involvement is required (Department of Health, 2010).
This hardships and struggles were focused on their child’s tantrums that are present in the condition ASD and how they cope up with it. Participants also described having to make lifestyle transitions in their life. One lifestyle transitions affected their careers for them to focus more in taking care of their child. Family activities and relationships with their non-affected children was also affected being involved in a child with autism. It was shown in the study how autism spectrum disorder give an impact in the primary caregivers’ life and his/her family. The findings suggest that professionals need to engage more with families when conveying a diagnosis of autism, particularly with families that is financially unstable. Thus, the findings suggest that there is a need to inform the future families who may experience the involved responsibilities of having an autistic child.This study gave several recommendations to three particular subjects the Families /Primary Caregivers, Government and the Community. All these subjects are selected for the enlightenment of this topic which is autism spectrum disorder(ASD). The findings from this study therefore provide hope and encouragement for parents of children with autism in particular, but also for parents raising children with intellectual disabilities
Intrinsic motivation is a key aspect of student success in school. Van den Broeck, Vansteenkiste, and De Witte (2013) define intrinsic motivation as, “the engagement in an activity for its own sake, that is, for the satisfaction and enjoyment experienced during the course of the activity itself” (p. 4). Educators encourage intrinsic motivation within their students as it boosts
Children and adults will at some point in their life have an additional need, be it long term, short term, unexpected or a sudden onset. Regardless of the circumstances, educators need to be able to recognise, acknowledge and support children and their family’s needs to the best of their ability. Additional needs goes beyond the physical appearance and obvious disability such as a missing limb or sight impairment. Children with additional needs may be on the autism spectrum, have cultural differences or who cannot speak or understand English. Children who are affected by a disability or who have additional needs are not the only people whose life is impacted. Families often bear the brunt of organising, obtaining resources, gaining medical assistance and sourcing educational facilities that can accommodate their child or children. Both parties will be subject to misconceptions, ignorance, disbelief, social bias, ridicule and a total lack of understanding of the child’s particular condition. This can have lasting personal, social and financial detrimental effects on the families. Fear of the unknown is usually the biggest hurdle that parents will face when looking at schooling and education for their
The importance of education for all children, especially for those with disability and with limited social and economic opportunities, is indisputable. Indeed, the special education system allowed children with disability increased access to public education. Apart from that, the special education system has provided for them an effective framework for their education, and for the institutions involved to identify children with disability sooner. In turn, this promotes greater inclusion of children with disability alongside their nondisabled peers. In spite of these advances however, many obstacles remain, including delays in providing services for children with disability, as well as regulatory and
In 1993 the report of the Special Education Review Committee (SERC) was published. This report dealt comprehensively with the educational implications of special needs. It provided a definition of special needs which included those with severe and profound difficulties through to those who were exceptionally able and included both physical and mental disabilities. It recognized that the desire of the majority of parents of children with
For increasing the motivation among students schools are providing several extrinsic rewards like grades, prizes etc. This will cause extrinsic motivation. Thus intrinsic motivation is some thing comes from student’s interest in subject and extrinsic motivation from the reward expectation. But there is a view that extrinsic motivation reduces intrinsic motivation. According to Lepper and Colleagues (2006) extrinsic rewards will reduce intrinsic interest and when students are informed that they are being watched it was found same effect as of extrinsic
