It is always important to encourage a child to do their best, point out the good they had done, and their mistakes in a constructive ways. Offer praise, and solutions.
Being a teacher of a special need child need that encouragement more than anything else. Many had been subjected to physical and emotional abuse at times. You hear the horror stories about abuse almost in a daily bases.
Special need children needs the reassurance that they can achieve great things in life too. Teachers need to be reminded to encourage these children, love them and show them that they can accomplish those high goals. Parents and teachers , therapist hand in hand can give these kids self esteem and a reason to work hard which will lead to a successful life, and self appreciation.
