Special education is a type of education provided to students with special needs in such a way that the individual differences and needs are addressed. In this case, there are individually designed and methodically supervised arrangement of teaching procedures, accessible settings, and other interventions that are designed to assist students with special needs to access education just like their colleagues who do not have special needs. Students with special needs are those students who are not in a position to understand concepts when taught in the same class with other students because they are lame, mute, blind, or deaf. These students require special education and curriculum in order to ensure that they are able to compete with other students at national and international areas. Some of the common needs that these students have include; communication challenges, emotional disorders, behavioral disorders, developmental disorders, challenges with learning, and physical disabilities. These students are therefore supposed to be provided with special approaches to teaching, technological use, and specific teaching area.
