This article will bring to your notice some of the ways by which a classroom teacher can handle a child with hearing or vision impairment in their various classes. There has been a serious case in so many places.
Before a classroom teacher can handle a special child with hearing or vision impairment is that the teacher must, first of all, find out from the child whether he or she is having long slightness or short-sightedness in order to be able to position the child in the class. Teachers will have to ensure that a child with short-sightedness must sit in front and a child with long-sighted must also sit at the back of the class. When all this is done, they will all feel comfortable to learn.
The teacher must make sure he or she separates the child from the normal class when he or notices that the impairment is beyond bringing the child back or in front of the class to organize a special remedial class for the child. They must have a free period to be with the child alone to teach him or her. A special needs child at that time does not need to be with others to learn if their impairment is above mild cases.
When there is a special needs child in your class and you find it difficult to handle him or her well, then there is the need for the teacher to introduce the child to a school authority so that they will send that child to a special need’s schools. Maybe as the child goes to a special needs school, he or she will find it better to learn more. And some teachers find it difficult to teach or handle a special needs child but if the child is been identified and sent to a special needs school, he or she must get it well no matter what it is.
Every teacher needs to be sensitive to the classroom environment in order for them to be able to identify them and bring them out from their peers because children with special needs would not feel comfortable learning with a colleague, so there is always the need for these teachers to be very alert to identify them and help them be at the same level with their colleagues. These are some of the ways by which a classroom teacher can handle a special needs child in his or her classroom.
