Reflecting on my educational and practical experiences, I appreciate the infinite influence that teachers have on children. I realise that children will take the skills and knowledge learnt in the classroom and use it throughout their lives. I know a teacher has to deal with many daily pressures and challenges, in the classroom. However, I feel I require the skills needed to deal with these challenges. As a teacher I hope not only to be an educator but a positive role model, whom the children can look up to and trust.
Focus on the children 's strengths as well as areas of additional need. Recognise the personal and
The IQ scores of 40-60 are considered significantly subaverage, which means that the IQ test performance of Ed Murphy was under the expectations. People with this level of IQ are expected to be very limited, including intellectual skills and adaptive behavior.

Preschools, daycares and childcare centers shared the market for children between the ages of birth to 5 years old. Compound research have correlated the math gains of student in prekindergarten (3 to 5 years old) with their math achievement in middle and high school (Watt, Duncan, Siegler, and Davis-Kean, 2014). Researchers are recommending intervention during these critical years so that students are deviated back towards grade-level proficiency. Therefore, districts across the country are opening their doors to prekindergarten so that Response to Intervention (RtI) can help struggling students turn learning stumbling blocks into developmental stepping stones before enter kindergarten.
After the 1992 constitution, the first policy that seemed to open the avenues for the children with disabilities in general was the Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE). For the first time, the issues of compulsory schooling and disability was addressed by legislation, however, the word ‘inclusion’ was not directly used but regular schools were encouraged rather than mandated to accept children with disabilities including those with autism. In the 2006 Disability Act, provision for inclusion of children with disabilities was made clear and now some efforts are being made to include children with autism in the regular

The transition from Primary school to Post-Primary school is a difficult time for anyone involved. It is one of the most drastic changes that students will ever encounter in the educational career. The transition is typically filled with anticipation and anxiety about homework, teachers, peers, academic rigor, school rules, getting lost, and many more factors. For the typical student, it is a whirlwind of emotion and anxiety. For students with special needs, these worries become even more prominent for the pupils and their parents. Not only do they have to worry about the stressors that typical students face, but they also have fears about accessing support and resources in order for them to succeed. In order for students to feel comfortable
The school have to apply the national policies which are related to children, young people and families and have a good knowledge of the policies, one of these important policies that the school have to follow is the Every Child Matters policy, for children nationally this has had great impact on them. Schools will need to create their own policies in accordance with the national guidelines, such as the safeguarding policy for children and the child protection policy, in following guidelines from the local education authorities.

Early childhood is very important to everyone because it shapes who children become as adults. Therefore, early childhood will be the solid foundation for the whole life of every child if the childhood is nurtured in the best environment. In almost education systems, people now acknowledge that health, emotional well-being and life success have their roots in early stages. Indeed, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child was enacted for signed countries to be “responsible for providing children with the opportunities necessary to develop physical, cognitive, social and emotional capacities in early life” (Hertzman & Williams, 2009).
These agencies and professionals collectively strive to ensure that vulnerable children and young persons, especially the disabled, receive appropriate life and work training. In the case of disabled children and young people this is partly achieved by sensitizing society through education, and by availing necessary facilities to help the disabled live a normal life (CITE). This includes rehabilitation centres and specialist schools, as well as training for carers. In this way, specialist agencies and professionals help disabled children and young persons' achieve life and work
We have always had learners with learning disabilities in our classroom but each time professionals or teachers have failed to recognise them as learners who need special instructions and attention. These learners have been always recognised with confusing and controversial labels like slow learners, neurologically disabled, perceptually disabled, dyslexic etc. These labels were given by various professionals who assess the disability and hence, are so varied. Over the years, many different terms have been consolidated to formulate one term for this disability which is known as Learning Disability. (Lerner, 2000)
