It will depend on the type of disability that the child has. They may have a hearing or seeing impairment or a physical or learning disability. Children or young people may be subjected to prejudice or discrimination which could lead to them being bullied or treated differently, this in turn could affect their learning skills, self confidence and development. In the past the medical model of disability meant that opportunities for learning and development where few and far between. Today there is a different approach to disabilities and most settings look at different ways in which they can help with learning and development and to give children as many opportunities as possible. It is important not to stereotype a child with a disability, as this can lead to low self-esteem, for example a child with specific learning needs might be expected to do poorly in all subjects at school not just the ones affected by the learning need and this is not always the case. Since I have worked in our setting I have been introduced to quite a few children which have different types of disabilities. We aim to make sure that each individual is treated the same and included in all activities by adapting the activity to the child's individual
One’s disability should never make another person believe they are incapable of doing nothing and are unintelligent. There are several cases such as Shawn’s of individuals being paralyzed but having untapped potential or having someone telling them they are unintelligent. I can personally speak of have met people who have mild cases of cerebral palsy and still go onto doing great things. In High school, our manager for the girl soccer team was a student who has CP and could only communicate with his eye tracking speech device. However, many looked down on him and thought he was unintelligent, but many did not know he was valedictorian of his class. Many put his physical disability before his true intelligence, what many did to Shawn in Stuck in
Did you know that people with mental disabilities have a much harder time getting a job, buying a house, owning a car, and living a normal life? In the story “Flowers For Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, Charlie Gordon is a 37 old man suffering with disabilities, with an I.Q of 68. All Charlie wants is to be intelligent and to act normally in society. Charlie has the chance to undergo a surgery that will triple his current intelligence. That is why Charlie Gordon’s life is much better off having the A.I surgery than not having it. He obtained new feelings he hasn’t experienced before, made important science discoveries, and increased intelligence.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. - Said Franklin D Roosevelt in his First Inaugural Address.

Disability affects development and learning because disability affects children's development in different ways. That can be physically and sensory, social, emotional and behavioural and learning or cognitive.
However just because dyslexia forces me to exude more effort than others, that means I will simply have to strive to be better than everyone else. If I am already running an extra mile, what is one more step? This mindset has been my method of motivating myself through triumphing over dyslexia. My motto ever since the day I learned of my disability has been, “I am willing to chase with patience!” This means that I will be patient while I vigorously chase my dreams. I am motivated. I am inspired. I am ambitious. I am tireless. I am Quentin
Within the school environment, there will be a variety of children and adults. Each child and
Of course, we are not talking here about students whose comprehension is severely impaired, because they are usually schooled individually and have a special grading system, adjusted to their needs and abilities. But in the classrooms there are often students with less obvious disabilities, which, although less severe, can also create academic challenges. Some of them, such as dyslexia or dyscalculia, are directly related to learning and may affect the speed at which students acquire the material. Others, such as anxiety or ADHD may not only disrupt learning, but also are very likely to cause discrepancies between the students’ subject knowledge and their exam and assignment results.
A developmental disability is a condition that impairs a child 's natural process of development.

Devereux Georgia is a behavioral health organization working with children and families throughout the Kennesaw, Georgia, area.
Roosevelt continued to hold to his principals and use his authority to help people in each of the appointed government offices that he held. Roosevelt was incredibly successful and effective because he always took the initiative to fix problems when he identified them. It is safe to speculate that a corrupt police force had been causing some issues for the people of New York. The fact that corruption was still an issue when Roosevelt took the office shows that none of his predecessors had taken the necessary steps to eradicate it. Perhaps they were lazy, scared, or corrupt themselves, but what is the truth is that Roosevelt was none of those things, and he was not afraid to stir the pot and make some heads roll in order to do what must be done. Roosevelt also demonstrated initiative
Everyone in this world have different ways of knowing how to read. All readers all somehow start off by knowing nothing, and experiencing many different ways in learning to read. Jimmy Santiago Baca didn’t know how to read, but still managed to become a famous American poet in Apache and Chicano background and was incarcerated for drug possession. Gareth Cook also became a famous even though he struggled with dyslexia he still managed to become a writer for The New Yorker. Many people will not learn how to read if they struggle with disabilities but because Cook was always embarrassed of how he read when picked in class by his teachers. Since Cook didn’t know what he will always stutter while reading, until college
David Bois, a dyslexic lawyer and litigator, has struggled with reading all his life, but he had a "childhood fascination with the law and decided that he would go to law school," which requires a lot of reading, but because of his dyslexia, he could not read like everyone else (2). Although, ever since he was born, he has been meticulously listening, because as he says, “Listening… was the only way I could learn,” he had to scramble and adapt and come up with some kind of strategy that allowed him to keep pace with everyone around him (2). His peers would be reliant on reading and studying to succeed in school, and to succeed in a law career. Thankfully, when he was in school his listening is what kept him ahead of the game because, “while everyone else furiously made notes or doodled or lapsed into daydreams,” he would focus in on everything that was said and written, and paste it all into his memory (2). He was mentally advanced compared to his fellow students, because everything he needed to study or review has already been drilled into his mind. This type of learning, of which is common amongst dyslexics is called “compensation learning,” which means they are trying “to compensate for something that [has] been taken away from them,” they do
Despite being the most prevalent learning disability, occurring in 1 out of 5 people, dyslexia occurs on a spectrum. Not everyone is going to experience all the same symptoms. Having dyslexia does not have to prevent you from succeeding in life, be it academically or otherwise. In fact, a lot of prominent figures are reported to have dyslexia. Examples include Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Steven Spielberg, and Keira Knightley.
