A special Individualized Education Programme (IEP) is required to be prepared by the special educators in every Government run and aided schools of Delhi, as per the directions of the AAP Government. Currently, there are around 20,000 disabled children studying in various schools under the Delhi Government. The new programme will ensure that personal attention is given to every disabled student of these schools.
The IEP should include instructions on the teaching procedures and should cover everything from basic requirements to extra-curricular activities.
"Teachers will have the liberty to modify any particular child's module as per requirements. The educators will not only record the type of special need, but also associated conditions, languages spoken and referral to other services in case the child needs services such as physiotherapy," a senior official of the Directorate of Education (DoE) said.
