India Still Doesn't Have A Proper System To Ensure Education To Children With Disabilities. The country lacks a central body to frame guidelines, leaving colleges and schools to decide for themselves. This doesn’t work in favor of the children or parents.

Choices in education are hard enough normally. When you’re the parent of a child with special needs, it can be tougher. In India, there are 2.7 million people with special needs, in a population of 1.3 billion. This means that about 2.2% of our population has special needs.

Having a special needs child can be an expensive affair. The cost can be up to four times that of raising a child without special needs. Doctors’ visits, medication, and special items like wheelchairs can cause costs to pile up.

People in the rural parts of the country aren't aware of such cases and feel they need to hide away their child, which in turns becomes an act of shunning away their child from the society. Awareness Programmes in such areas can help people know what their child is suffering from and can help lead them better life with proper treatment and education. 

Having schools all across India including the rural areas, which are Government funded with all the proper material to teach and support these children for future endeavours can help parents to help their child to walk on the same path as everyone else without feeling burdened financially.
