Designing for disabled children and children with special educational needs means putting these children at the very heart of the design and build process, right from inception.

Designing for disabled children and SEN

This will help ensure not only access and participation but also inspirational school environments. A recent publication from the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) draws together guidance on designing ‘inclusive’ school environments. It stresses that there is a wide range of special educational need and no one design solution to support these children. So it’s vital that approaches are developed carefully, in close consultation with stakeholders from the word go. Only by talking to teachers, specialists, parents, carers and the children themselves – and incorporating their expertise and experience - can a good quality, detailed brief be developed, which will help turn bricks and mortar into an inspiring, ‘inclusive’ school environment that matches the needs of the communities it serves.

[page 296] Handicapped Children in Ordinary Schools 834. 835. Complex Child Magazine. Unlocking Speech and Language. Deafness and the User Experience. How many times have you been asked this question: if you had to choose, which would you prefer to be: deaf or blind? The question illustrates the misconception that deafness is in some way the opposite of blindness—as though there’s some sort of binary representation of disability.

When we look at accessible design for the deaf, it’s not surprising to see it addressed in a similar fashion: audio captioning is pretty much the equivalent of alt text on images for most designers. Captioning by itself oversimplifies the matter and fails many Deaf people. To provide better user experiences for the Deaf, we need to stop thinking of deafness as simply the inverse of hearing—we need to understand deafness from both a cultural and linguistic perspective.

Parenting is no easy feat. When you parent a child with special challenges, such as ADHD, the odds can at times seem insurmountable. As with all healthcare issues, information is power.

For Parents - Learning Disabilities Association of America. Parents are often baffled by the problems presented by a child with learning disabilities. Often this “invisible disability” does not become obvious until a child reaches school age. Even then, difficulties may be subtle and hard to recognize. Here you will find a wealth of information on understanding learning disabilities, negotiating the special education process, and helping your child and yourself.

The goal of all education is to prepare students to participate in society, and for most people, vision is fundamental to learning. But what happens when a child has a visual impairment? Limitations on the ability to receive information from the world around us can have far-reaching effects, including an impact on a child's ability to understand concepts, learn language, move about freely with confidence, and develop in a variety of ways.

For this reason, the families and teachers of children with visual impairments use alternative means and strategies for teaching them to read, write, interact socially, and perform various daily tasks. Currently, nearly 94,000 children in the United States who are blind or visually impaired are being helped by some form of special education. These students are an extremely diverse group ranging from infants to young adults through age 21.
