Screen kids for learning disabilities: HC 11.5.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
In a significant order which could help in early detection of specific learning disabilities among children, the Bombay High Court on Wednesday asked all schools and education boards to screen their students for early detection of the disability. A division bench of Justice VM Kanade and Justice AK Menon said, “We direct all the schools, boards and educational institutions to ensure that they carry out the task of detecting specific learning disabilities in children at the very earliest stage, preferably when they are in the primary school or after they complete the age of nine years.” “One other method is to examine the students who had fair performance earlier and who have not done well,” the court said. “This would certainly create lesser burden on the school, and it would be an easier method to identify such children from this category,” the court added. The court asked the schools and educational institutions to keep the records confidential asserting that if a child is detected with learning ...

This start-up aims to be the bridge of information for children with special needs 11.4.2017 DNA: Popular News
In India, the disabled population constitute 2.21% of the total population, as per the 2011 census Interestingly there is no one static condition of disability. A disability is a result of the interaction between a person with a health condition and a environmental context. "Individuals with similar health conditions may not be similarly disabled or share the same perception of their disability, depending on their environmental adaptations," according to a paper titled 'Disabled Persons in India: A statistical profile 2016'. Children with disabilities mainly come under the purview of the Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment. Some of the issues are, however, dealt with by the health ministry. “But no single ministry has been assigned the protection of these children, which leads to varying data about occurrence of disability amongst children,” says a report by Childline India, an NGO that works towards bettering lives of children. As per Childline’s records, 1.67% of the 0-19 population has a ...

At least two dead in Southern California school shooting 10.4.2017 DNA: Top News
A man opened fire with a pistol in a special education classroom at a Southern California elementary school on Monday, fatally shooting the teacher and wounding two students before killing himself, police and school officials said. Police said the two children were believed to have been caught in the gunfire unintentionally as bystanders to Monday's violence, which unfolded several miles from the scene of a December 2015 shooting rampage that killed 14 people.
