LAHORE (PPI) - General Secretary Foundation for Education & Rehabilitation of Special Children (FRESH) Ashba Kamran has deplored the fact that not a single penny is allocated for the children with Special Education Needs (SEN) in the federal and provincial budgets. Resultantly, she said, the children with Special Education Needs would suffer again throughout the fiscal year 2011-12, as all funds allocated under the head of Special Education are for the children with Special Needs (SN). This situation would lead to further drop outs from schools this year as well, she feared. Ashba said the government policymakers should make separate allocations for children with Special Needs (SN) and Special Education Needs (SEN). The SEN children are those children facing educational/academic disabilities due to Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Attention Deficit Disorder (QADD) besides Autism, she said. The General Secretary FRESH said the highly latest surveys have suggested that 10 to 15 percent of the mainstream school going children is facing learning difficulties in one form or the other. But not a single school in public sector is in place by the federal or the provincial governments to take care of such special children.
