Disability is a human rights issue, it is an educational and social issue, it is no more considered as a medical issue. It must be realized by everybody that PWDs are an integral part of society and every effort must be made to mainstream them in the society. People with impairment feel disabled not because of their physical and or mental handicaps but because of the barriers society imposes to establish differences between the disabled and non-disabled.
Now, our Indian society has already entered the fifth wave of education i.e., knowledge based society. In the light of our constitution, we are considering Education for All. It also includes students with disabilities. Now, in the changing scenario we are passing through the various concepts like mainstreaming, integration etc. and at present we are looking forward for inclusion of the children with disabilities in the regular schools. The book deals with basic concepts, identification, behaviour modification, education, vocational training, S & T developments, CBR services, etc for children with special needs. Undoubtedly this book will receive wide acclaim from rehabilitation professionals/ personnel, research scholars, resource teachers, placement/rehabilitation officers, policy makers, teachers & students of special education, organizations of the disabled, etc.
The Government offices including public sector undertakings & banks dealing with appointment, promotion, transfer and administering various concessions, relaxations etc. would also find the volume of immense value. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed/M.Ed/Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/MSc. Child Development students in all Indian Universities. In short, this is a very useful document to provide right kind of information to all stakeholders so that they may take steps to improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities.
