Some children might be delayed in achieving their developmental milestones (like walking, speech & language, etc) due to health problems or any disability. This delay could affect the child learning. If the child is missing a lot of his/her age appropriate learning, then usual schooling guides are not enough. Parents need to give special attention to their child.
A Child Psychologist and/or a special educator evaluate the child’s development in various areas and as per the need they make Individual Education Plan (IEP). IEP includes realistic goals, objectives and specially designed instructions for a child and his/her progress assessment.
The Educator plan, organize and assign activities that are specific to the child abilities. Special need educator also prepare and help students transition from grade to grade.
