Author(s): Virendra Singh Ruhela
Abstract: Special education is a specialized approach to education that caters to individuals with disabilities or exceptionalities. It aims to provide necessary support, accommodations, and instruction to help them achieve their full academic potential and integrate into society. The field has evolved over time, moving away from segregated classrooms to promote inclusive education. As awareness and commitment grow, special education plays a pivotal role in fostering a more inclusive society. Special education is a field that focuses on addressing the unique needs of individuals with disabilities. It has a rich history, with significant legislative developments and societal changes. The field has evolved from ancient civilizations to the present, with pioneering figures like Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan working to develop specialized approaches. The World Wars and the Brown v. Board of Education case highlighted the need for equal educational opportunities. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) laid the groundwork for special education services in public schools. The 21st century has seen rapid advancements in assistive technology, and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities reaffirmed the rights of individuals with disabilities to an inclusive education.
