Shadow Teacher Training

 

Children with special needs face many challenges in an inclusive school setting as they may not perform like other children in academics and in other skills (for example: communication skills, understanding the play rules, attention, motivation, confidence, sitting tolerance etc.).

In the classroom teachers find it difficult to manage and to give singular attention to the special child along with the other children in the class. This is where a shadow teacher plays a crucial role in the holistic development of a special child, especially in helping the child cope and adapt to his/ her environment.

Shadow teachers equip the child to do his/her daily activities in school such as to copy notes, understand the teaching in class, performing class work, engaging in extracurricular activities etc.

In this way they make sure that the child is coping with his/her peers. Training of shadow teacher and giving them psychological management techniques makes them more equipped to manage the child and contribute in his/her development.
