Special education


At a launch attended by Minister for Human Rights, Dr. Shireen Mazari, on Thursday Oct. 23rd, Pakistan introduced a first-of-its-kind a smartphone application geared towards helping parents of Pakistani students with special needs. This application marks the beginning of the introduction of much needed tech-based improvements in the special needs education sector.


Educators, academicians and researchers are now much more aware of the problems and difficulties faced by children with special needs and endorse the utilization of technology to support and assist them. Special education needs can refer to the individual requirements of children with learning difficulties and disabilities, including verbal, cognitive, sensory, developmental and neuropsychological handicaps. Special children require additional assistance from teachers and parents in order to perform well in academic settings and new educational trends for special children are emerging  across the first world.
