They also focused on inclusion of such children in the classroom with the other children. This will enhance their self-confidence and they in turn will become self-reliant. The teachers should provide them with such environment that doesn’t hinder their progress.
For this they should innovate and use new techniques, investigative strategies etc for challenges faced in their social and professional life. The school management should also help these children for the same cause. The participants of the workshop were also given opportunities to give their views.
