Inclusive schools, in adherence to the Right to Education (RTE) Act and National Education Policy (NEP), are emphasizing the need for a supportive environment for children with learning disabilities.


What are Inclusive Schools?

Inclusive schools are educational institutions that aim to provide equal opportunities and support for students of all abilities and backgrounds. These schools accommodate diverse learning needs, including those with disabilities or special needs, fostering an environment of acceptance and participation.


What are Shadow teachers? 

A shadow teacher is a professional who assists and supports students with special needs or learning disabilities in a mainstream classroom setting.

For example, if a student on the autism spectrum is enrolled in a regular classroom, a shadow teacher might accompany them, offering personalized assistance to enhance their learning experience and social integration.
