The three day workshop covered topics like Understanding IEPs, Curriculum modification/ adaptation/adjustments, need based assessment with the focus on creating Inclusive learning spaces for the 21st century child. The aim here is to create organic spaces of learning for all. A positive school environment characterises elements of a good learning centre. It includes working on the pedagogy adopted by teachers and adopting a Universal design of learning where teaching learning material is modified to fit in the needs of each child of the class. Moreover, ICT plays a crucial role in helping all students including children with special needs to learn in a way the child can learn.
