Differently abled children

Introduction

Often physically and mentally challenged children are made subjects of sympathy. We should remember that a physically or mentally challenged child has rights too and more than sympathy, the child requires our empathy.

differently abled children

More often than not, physical and mental disability is considered a curse in society. The families of such children treat them as a burden. But we forget that these children have special needs which we need to fulfill.

What the law says about discrimination of differently abled children

Persons with Disabilities Act, 1995 ensures equal opportunities for people with disabilities and provides education, employment and vocational training for them.

Role of panchayat members in supporting differently abled children

Panchayat members should learn more about physical and mental disability; contact organisations that assist the differently abled and introduce differently abled children and their parents to these organisations so they can avail its services; familiarise Aanganwadi workers, teachers, parents and community with the special needs of the differently abled children.
