B.Ed Special Education (MR)
The above functions are envisaged keeping in mind the National Policy on Education 1986, which states (1) children with mild disabilities will be in regular schools, (2) children with severe disabilities will be in special schools, (3) vocationalization of education should be considered in school level, (4) teacher training programmes should be re-oriented to include children with special needs and (5) voluntary efforts must be encouraged. This being the case, the above programme will prepare teacher who can work effectively as resource room teachers in regular school and will have the competencies to teach children with mild disabilities.
Further, the experience shows that the regular schools have been reluctant in starting resource rooms because of lack of trained manpower. This may also help in having a wider scope of employment of the special education teacher in the regular educational setting to act as a resource teacher. The course content includes organization and administration skills, thus preparing them to be in the position of In charge of special schools. The curriculum also covers pre-vocational areas and involvement in community, thus preparing the teacher to plan for total educational programming for persons with mental retardation in the school going age.
