What is a 'special-needs' child?

Special needs child In general terms a special needs child is one who has some type of physical or mental/emotional disability. The specific definition of "special needs" varies from state to state. It may be that the child has special medical issues, mental health issues, abuse history, learning disabilities, or is just an older child or of a minority race.

A SPECIAL NEEDS child is a child that for various reasons doesn't fit the "NORM". They may need help in any area of daily living skills. Some may be slightly delayed in dressing themselves, while others are total care, and need help in all aspects of daily skills. In days past, these kids were called "retarded", "deformed", "handicapped","slow", "disabled" etc... "Special Needs" covers all and seems more polite.

Adoption related: In (PA), any child in the foster care system over 4 years old is considered special needs. The term is extremely broad, and can really mean: "Any child but a perfectly healthy, white infant" ... the "in demand" children for adoption. ... a parent of two adopted "special needs" children (healthy children adopted as teens) Special needs just means that the child in question has special/or additional needs. I'm short sighted and need glasses or contacts in order to see as clearly as someone with 20-20 vision. This is a special need. Some children may need extra care when learning or a hearing aid or a speach box which are all special/additional needs.

My child was born with Waardenburg syndrome. I don't have it. I want to know how did she get it?

The disorder is autosomal dominant, so she would have gotten the gene from either one of her parents. Since not every person has the same symptoms, and symptoms can be very subtle, it's possible for one of her parents to carry the gene without knowing it. Some people with the syndrome have only minor signs, like a patch of white hair, without any difficulties related to hearing or the muscular system.

Consulting with a genetic counselor may be helpful for your family as you sort out this question. Best wishes!

Waardenburg syndrome can skip a generation or as above the signs can so subtle as to be unrecognizable. I read of a case where a woman gave birth to triplets with Waardenburg when there was no known instances of the genetic syndrome

If your cousin is mentally challenged and his mother does not give him what he needs what can you do?

I'm not particularly sure what you mean but if your talking about basic needs then yes do what ever it is to help out your help will be greatly appreciated sometimes it's hard for parents to do what is necessary for their kids who have learning disability so yes help if you can. Social Sevices or Human Services wouldbe the people to talk to. If he is at school see if you can talk to one of his teachers. Persons who are mentally challenged are eligible to receive many forms of public assistance including Medicare, Medicaid and other government aid and resources. In such situations a case worker is assigned to oversee the personal care of the mentally challenged person including educational and physical therapy, special medical needs and so forth. If the family is not receiving such aid it may be due to the fact that the parents/caregivers are not aware of the assistance that is available. The state's department of family and human services can assist in whatever matter is needed, telephone numbers can be found in the "state government pages" of the local phone directory. Before making the conclusion that said person is not getting what is needed, one must be very certain what those needs are. If the person is not being kept healthy by proper diet and hygiene, not receiving needed medical or dental care, or there are signs of abuse or neglect it is a serious problem and it should be reported at once. On the other hand it may be a misunderstanding of what the person's needs are by those who are not schooled in the care of the mentally handicapped. One option might be to communicate to the parent(s) one's concerns about the care being given and try to find an equitable solution before involving outside agencies. Depending on the degeree of "needs not met", there are a few things you could do to help. Ask the mother if she is aware of assistance available for special needs children and adults. If not, help her make some phone calls to various agencies; state and town etc... Sometimes it can be overwhelming for a mother of someone with special needs, and a little help can go a long way. Some parents a against any help from "outsiders". If there is outright neglect or abuse, you should call the state and find out which agency could help the situation. No child or adult should be abused or neglected, and the penalty is higher for abuse/neglect of the elderly and hanicapped. If the situation is high priority (abuse, serious neglect, serious lack of ordinary care), the person may need to be removed from their current living conditions. ANOTHER POINT of view is that it is a FELONY to abuse and/or neglect a person with MENTAL RETARDATION,, you can help your cousin by contacting the State Agency that protects people with retardation. They will investigate and if they find the handicapped person IS being neglected, they can help the parent to meet the necessary laws of proper care and/or help them get out of that situation....Best of luck...you are doing your cousin a BIG favor by helping them out. Do NOT call it retardation that word is not acceptable any more. The question you have to ask youself is how your cousin is being neglected or treated. If the situation is minor and your cousins carer is finding it difficult to look after your cousin on their own, or even with the help of family, there are polenty of care services that can help. Asking at the school or asking a social worker, if they have one, is a good place to start. If the situation is harming your cousins development, or mental, or physical help you may want to bypass your cousins carer and go to through the school or social worker and they will be able to assess the situation proffessionally and set in place what supports or actions that are needed.

Can you suggest a gift for a special-needs child who is blind and cannot walk or talk?

br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}Sensory toys are the perfect gifts for kids who are blind, can't talk, and/or can't walk. I would recommend engaging children with purposeful toys in the context of play with a partner. This approach, apart from making interaction easy, also provides them the right environment for learning. Plus, it's fun for them. eSpecial Needs is a really good resource. They have plenty of toys you can gift to special needs children. https://www.especialneeds.com/shop/special-needs-toys/sensory-activities.html

What are the characteristics of children with special needs?

The characteristics of a special need child vary. It is often hard to diagnose a disability in childhood because children develop at different rates; just because your child seems to be learning to walk or speak later than other children, does not mean that they have a disability. Most commonly, physical de formations such as widely set eyes are shown before any sign of a learning disability is. If you are concerned that your child may have a special need, your best bet is to go and see a specialist. It wouldn't hurt, even if you are unsure. Some types of special need are very profound even while the child is still young and especially while at school age. This is when the majority of special needs in children is detected. Things like dyslexia and ADHD will be very apparent and have almost undoubtedly recognisable signs. Children on the autistic spectrum, even those with high functioning autism will have some communication, social and emotional defects that will raise a flag of concern. Teachers will be able to use baseline assessment tests and mid term tests to see whether children are below the expected levels. Add in to the mix the concerns about a child's development socially, and its quite likely to pick up a need earlier on. Also, with regard to disability, lots of children are born with them. Things such as downs, hirschprungs disease, cerebal palsy and sensory impairments will require intervention from the moment they are born, as they have complications. Paediatricians can identify clear signs and characteristics and can diagnose very quickly. In agreement with the advice given above, I too would say, if in doubt, get it checked out.

Should a person with obvious limited intelligence be allowed access to the Internet?

Yes. George W Bush is not allowed access to the internet. people with limited abilities either physical or mental need to feel as normal as possible. if their mental abilities are limited and you worry about the world of the web (which is natural) you could put a block on the computer to limit access to web sites that could be improper for them to view. just like you would for children.

Should children with special needs be taught alongside children who do not have special needs?

Why? Why would you do that to the special needs child who obviously needs special attention? The extra attention will make other around him or her resentful. The child who obviously doesn't fit in will be constantly reminded of how different they are as kids close by make fun of them. It would be torture to the special needs child.

And it is natural to want to make sure people are on a level playing field. If the special needs child has a learning disability they cannot keep up with the rest of the class so instead, the rest of the class has to be taught at a slower pace. Why should they have to do this? It makes no sense.

If the special needs child has physical impairments but is mentally equal with their peers, it MAY make some sort of sense as long as it doesn;t present an unnecessary level of distraction for the rest of the class after they have time to adjust. For example, a child with terets spouting out obscenitites will have disruptive effects on the class throughout the year and not just at the beginning.

The onlyreason anyone ever wants to do this is because it makes the parent FEEL better. It allows them to pretend that their child does not have a disability. When in fact, the child needs special attention not granted to others. Otherwise this child would not be called "special needs".

The ONLY time this should be allowed is when the child themselves has expressed a desire from within to attempt to fit in with normal society. If this is the case, the kid should not be denied. Obviously at this point they are mentally capable of understanding the social consequences of their separation from the "normal" groups. This is a high-level function of the human brain and shows that the child is developmentally capable of entering that atmosphere.

If the kid has not themselves expressed a desire to fit in, don;t force it upon them.

More OpinionsIn the majority of US states "main streaming" of special needs students into the public school system is the law, the premise being that it will better prepare them for society in the general sense.

A special needs student usually spends part of his or her learning time in a traditional classroom setting and the rest of the school day in an environment that is structured to his or her needs.

To deliberately set children apart who are able to participate in normal learning conditions is a violation of their civil rights and quite simply cruel.

Parents are not in denial, many cannot afford private education, many communtities do not have the funding for special education schools and there is absolutely no reason that special needs children cannot interact with other students when it does not constitute a physical danger or emotional trauma (generally instilled by supposed adults) to themselves or others.

AnswerDepnds on what their special need is. If they need a care nurse with them then not right along side but at least in the same school. If they just need medication for add or adhd then they can be taught right along side other children but not given extra time for anything or special attention.


Up till High School I was in the Rescores Room. And, yes kids make fun of me. Don't kids do that to make themselves look bigger then others. Every day after I got home from school I would ask my mom "Why did God make me this way"? She tried the best she could to answer but it wasn't enough. I just wanted to be like all the other kids not in Special Ed. In High School I was in a few Special Ed classes. But what they called Basic Classes. Being in the Special Olympics really helped me cope too.

yes, kids want to hang out with kids and they want to think they are equal so yes if they wouldn't mind. Ask them if they want to be with regular kids or special education kids. The thing is that cool kids are the ones that hang if he wants to be with them then put him the regular kids but if not put him with special education students like they want. Parents just talk with your child and ask him want he wants to do.

How divorce affects child's psychology does it cause the child to show more aggression or violence?

The child might feel at blame for the divorce. They may feel misunderstood or alone. Divorces are generally hard times for children and they find it hard to understand "mummy and daddy just don't love each other anymore." it is hard seeing your world as you know it be torn apart. Especially during childhood, children do not have as many coping methods as teenagers or older people would, so they find it hard to cope.
